New Lace horseshoe

This is a horseshoe I have just made from a Biggins pattern. I have made this for my mother in laws wedding in May this year. She is 84 and her husband to be is 88 years young.
I thought this would be harder to make than it was, the little frill on the outside took the most time it is made with a silver colour at the outside edge.

Favourite Place

My Favourite place in the whole world is Cyprus. We have been there about 8/9 times and I love it. I love the people, the weather, the flowers, the views, the smell - just about everything there I love. I am going again in October and can't wait, it feels so like home.

Here are some photos:

This is view from the balcony of my room.

Thought this was lovely with the wild flowers and the sea

Aphrodite Rock where you are supposed to swim round lots of times at midnight and then you receive eternal youth!!!!

I wish - I would soon learn to swim!!!

In Cyprus the sunsets are wonderful, the sun so big and it lights up the whole sky as you can see here. Although when you are there it is much more spectacular.

My Lacemaking

This is a Torchon fan that I made
and I attached it to the Springetts
fan sticks

This Rhino I made from a pattern in the Lace Guild Magazine
I found him complicated to make, but enjoyed the challenge.

I loved making this butterfly and had it framed and on my wall for many years.

I am now learning Bucks Point lace making so watch this space for new photos.

My Pets

Jem as a kitten

These pictures are Jem aged 6years

This was my lovely Smike, he died a few years ago but was always a lovely cat. So gentle.

This is another poem passed to me by a dear friend:

My Baby

Not flesh of my flesh

Nor bone of my bone

Yes somehow miraculously my own

NEVER FORGET for a single minute

You weren't born under my heart

BUT in it
