Braid 4

I was able to do this one quickly this evening, including winding the bobbins, taking off the pillow and pressing it. I've left the tails on but they are really just braid samples, not bookmarks. This one has a frontside AND footside. Easy!

The next three use a different pricking. They are very similar so I might just do one and then move on to some simple edgings. I'm also anxious to start doing something with a shape but that probably won't happen until next week.

I did well with my presentation and it appears I'll be recertified as a qualified trainer after tomorrow. The chairs are not terribly comfortable and the table is too high so when I have my arms on the table I end up with hunched up shoulders and that doesn't take long to start hurting. I'm sure the stress was contributing to that. I get to just listen tomorrow.

I am determined to spend time with my bobbin lace after seeing all your beautiful work! I think I need to wait for three things: sunshine, warmer weather, and summer vacation. Then, I think my screened-in back porch will become my bobbin lace room. I think I'll follow your lead and choose two contrasting colors so that I can see my progress more clearly.

When do the RPL posts begin? ; )
