Well, we did have quite a long morning of schooling followed by the kids awards ceremony and pot luck lunch at the park. I actually do enjoy seeing the diversity of all the families in our homeschooling program and of course it gives the kids a chance to be acknowledged among their peers. I do wish it were cooler outside when we did it all though.
The bobbin lace is still slow going, but I think I might have gotten the pattern mostly down. Unlike tatting, I really can't stop work anywhere though. I find that If I'm distracted before I finish an element, I can't remember which bobbin was going which direction. I generally end up undoing something to get my bearings again. I did turn one more corner last night after this photo. It went without incident, but I'm starting to get really nervous about joining the end and the beginning since I can see it coming soon enough.
I just wanted to also say thank you to everyone who has been commenting on my bobbin lace progress, the advice and encouragement has been wonderful! Hopefully I'll get to put more of that advice to use soon, but for now I'll just keep working on it with what I have and hoping for more tatting sales at the same time.
