Merry Christmas


May your Christmas be merry and bright, and may Santa spoil you with pretty bobbins and even a lacemaking book or two.

Enjoy spending time with family and friends and making precious memories.  And I hope you find some time to sneak away from all of the festivities to make some lace.

The photo of the Christmas tree is very dear to my heart.  My mum made the little fabric Christmas tree, dad turned the wooden base, and it is decorated with one of the first pieces of Torchon lace I ever made.

Christmas came very early for me this year – I received a surprise parcel in the mail one afternoon some months ago from a dear friend of ours, Louise Porter.  Beautiful, precious lace that belonged to her grandmother.  We are still trying to piece together the history of the lace but my understanding is that it was brought to New Zealand from the UK in the early 1900s.  Will post more about it in 2018 once I get further information.



Unplug, find that quiet space, embrace your creativity, and let’s make lots of lace this holiday.
