Where’s the Pillow Lace?

     When I first started blogging I was just learning a new handcraft, namely pillow or bobbin lace. It also happened that shortly after creating this blog my first novel was published and my life took an exciting and unexpected turn. Some of my early posts featured me making my lace pillows and assembling my tools. I'm still making lace but it is a challenging art and it has taken me time to conquer some of the techniques. In the meantime I've gotten emails and messages asking for more postings about pillow lace. 

My lace pillow "dressed" and ready for lace making.

     After publishing my last novel I took some time to focus more on the lace making and today I want to share some of what I have learned.

    I decided to not to only make a blog posting about pillow lace but to try a little bit of "vlogging" or video blogging. I took several photos and recorded a video that illustrates the basics of pillow lace. I'm glad I did. Making a little movie was a fun and educational process in itself. I hope you enjoy it.
