Restart

I started making a new pattern.



I have moved and starting to calm down a bit now.
From my window, I have a view of the ocean as well as of the mountains.
I'm comfortable in my house.
I love watching birds.





I'm going to make something I've never made before. :)

Tatting lace

I'm cleaning out my room of all the flotsam and jetsam.
I found it in the closet.
There are tatting shuttles.




I was making a tatting lace only for a short period of time.
Maybe I'll take up it again.

Packing

I changed my template style.
I like crochet lace as much as bobbin lace.
The move is on track.
There are so many more that I have to packing.
I want to stay mobile, so I don't want to pack too much.
Contrary to what my thinks, there were more now than before.

Bobbin lace postcards

I found postcards when I was putting away my books.
Her name is Sachiko Ariki and Japanese lace maker.
She is really great!







I'd like to try it (draw a picture with bobbin lace) sometime!

My textbook


I teach myself bobbin lace.
The book is my first text.
It's described step by step and easily understandable.











The book is a second text.
I got up to page 74.







I'm moving next month.
I have to make arrangements for my move.
I'm busy right now, I can't make a bobbin lace.

I finished my bobbin lace!

I have finally been completed.











To be honest, I skipped three weeks make a lace.
I have to make a new lace.

cardboard-recycling shelf

This is a cardboard box of drum carder.
It is a thick cardboard.
I thought that I want to try to make a shelf!






I made it from a cardboard.
It was wonderful.

Fiber art

This is what remains behind knitting and crocheting.
I always kept the little piece of thread.
Lately I'm interested in a fiber art.
I thought that I want it to work and tried it.






This is fun!

Nuno felted scarf

I made a felt scarf.

This is a medical cotton gauze.
I used it .
It is used as the base of the scarf.



I dyed it yellow green. It's my favorite color.



I'm going to felting and I put designs on it with colored wool.



Actually, I'm not good at wet felting.
What should I do?
I decided I leave up it to a washing machine.
I fold it and into a cleaning net.
Wash the scarf with water and a dishwashing detergent
for about 25 minutes and spin dry.
Take out the scarf and unfold it.
Rinse and spin dry and hang it to dry.





A scarf just finished!
Not bad for the first try?
