I had my first lace making lesson today. It's fascinating! Somewhat like basket weaving with a big touch of square dancing thrown in. I'm using big thread as befits my total amateur status. Training thread. I'll practice my 3 routines this weeks and try to get more bobbins made. It seems I need about 50 million of them, and they all need beads in a loop on the end for weight and corralling when in transit. I'm using a training kit from the instructor right now, but I need my own stuff, and it is surprisingly doable if you don't mind doing it yourself. I don't. I also have all this neat thread and crochet cotton I have collected over the years. It seems like destiny, don't you think? I'll post some lace pics if it ever gets longer than an inch.
Tomorrow I go to my first retired teacher lunch. We do lunch I guess. Should be interesting. For me and for them I bet. It's hard to know what to expect, and I hope I enjoy. It's never fun to go to something all hopeful and then come away with no intention of returning because it really didn't make your cup of tea. I ordered the eggs Benedict, so I'm off to a good start.
Ah ha! I just had a thought. A nice scarf would gently disguise those neck wrinkles! Not that I have any wrinkles. I don't. Only through the camera's lens, that's the only place, and scarves are lovely. I'll need lots.
