Done! My error was in the top half but I didn't see it until I unpinned everything. I was up until midnight working out the bottom. I'd weave and unweave, weave and unweave, weave and unweave.....but I did get the bottom right! And since the colors ended in the right places, I'm not sure that what I think was wrong was wrong. I'm going to do something different for awhile though.

Rosemary Shepherd's book has a section with several different braids so I think I'm going to do that for a bit. I also want to do some simple edgings so I can practice footsides and such. I realize now that bookmarks combine several different techniques so now I want to go back and learn more about them. I think it will help me in the long run rather than jumping into another "finished" project. I feel like I have a good start and a little more study will bring it all together.

I've been wanting to do some embroidery and needle lace too.....and RPL. And some beading.

I love this stuff!

And I love watching your progress with this stuff! You're keeping me interested in all the different techniques. I'll be back to bobbin lace when I have some sunshine coming through my windows so that I can see what I'm doing. I think I'm going to pick up my RPL again this summer. So many projects, so little time!
