5/9/2021 My trails piece from Karen Thompsons class. Didn't finish correctly, but I'm still happy with the product. Progress not perfection!

2/2021 - Took a Beyond the Bobbin Basics with Karen Thompson course - here's my heart! Covered a stitch change with a beaded bow LOL
The egg cover was a first pass, I knew the egg was small so I used size 80 instead of 40, but it was still too big. Next time I will use shorter chains and maybe smaller rings. Purchase Etsy pattern here. 3/24/2021-used shorter chains (15/20 stitches) and smaller clovers (2-4)...a much better fit!

May 2015 Lace meeting daisy picot butterfly

My first tries at the Lora earrings pattern from Emelie Zakh on ETSY
Uses the right thread, but the beads were a bit small, and sewing them in is not as neat as described in the pattern (left). Second one, I added in line beads, but the pearls are not in the right area...will try again.
