Needle Lace and more

So here is a try of something I have wanted to do for a long while and with totusmel blog and tat-ology's encouragement, I gave it a whirl, Armenian lace.
I can't see very well and skiped spaces and not sure if I like it.



 I found this link that has many different kinds of Needle Lace Introductions  Beside is a different style, the link is above.  
We went away last weekend and visited a well known Arboretum with a bonsai exhibit  
I am happy I did get some tatting done this is row is going by fast it not taking that much thread and will complement the next round I am sure of it :)
We were babysitting Two dogs and the cat (Mojo) for my daughter and son-in-law

below they had a special quilt show 




this is a beautiful bleeding heart flower


This is an outdoor train that they decorate for Christmas time that is beautiful to see with the lights at night too!



My husband and I
have a great day!

  5. Lovely photos, thank you for sharing, that bonsai is wonderful. Good job with the armenian lace, on tatting too! The doily is so pretty but very large, I've an excuse to not tat that, I've not a place for such a big doily!

  8. Wow! Your doily is looking amazing! For some reason, your blog has not been showing up on my blog feed again. Sometimes technology is so frustrating! You and Fox are tempting me to try Armenian lace!

  12. I see you've been bitten by the Armenian Lace bug too! I'm going to watch you all, I don't want to take anything else on. I like your other pics too. We had a bleeding heart plant very like that, but it succumbed to frost.
