My Next Lace Project
Having gotten the two Naoko Ichida books from Lacis (thanks Janice for the spelling), I have picked out my next project.
One of the things that struck me about Niebling's lace work was that he could makes some of the most beautifully sculpted fabric, often using florals as his subject. I love how his works is so elegant, curvy and soft.
I've selected a pattern called La Promenade dans la Forêt (I guess that's the French translation of the Japanese name?). Here are a couple of badly scanned pictures of what it looks like in the book.
Now I can't wait to finish this mundane piece of lace from Kinzel's Lace Knitting books.
In keeping with today's theme, the picture isn't so great. I tried to take a picture of just one corner of the piece to make the pattern more obvious. I have to work on my photography skills.
I'm on round 130 now, so I finished another 8 rounds. They get longer and longer, but now I have incentive to push even faster.

From you lips to Goddess' ears. While I'm hoping Clinton gets elected, I would certainly support an Obama presidency as well.
