Friday night, this was the scene:
Note that it is blocking on a queen sized mattress. I think I could use a king size in the future for blocking.
A bit more detail. There are pins across the top, down the center, and in each loopy thing along the sides.
With a little help from Patricia, Mary, and Chris while at the bead store, we managed to take this picture. I photoshopped out the background. But the loopy things wouldn't stay flat.
A woman there asked if I made these for sale. Well...I'd do it if I judged you worthy. This is kind of like how a bank runs a credit check...this is a worthiness check. Patricia's answer to that woman was, "Do you have $10,000 lying around?" Yeah. I loved the lace, but it is time consuming and detail oriented.
But putting this on for the first time, I decided that I must make another one.
