Some Clarification

Just to clarify my previous post. I didn't make everything in that photo. I didn't make the beaded lace, I'm just sewing it on.

I did do the lace shawl: (Pattern is Crown Prince shawl, from Knitted Lace of Estonia by Nancy Bush. I am in love.)
I tried sizing this to fit, but it didn't shrink well. Not well at all.

And the embroidery: (Pattern is from Needle 'N Thread - a great embroidery blog)
There's a weaving link here - the embroidery is sitting on my weaving stool/bench in this photo...

I also didn't make the chair that it's all draped over...

Okay, here's my excuse for having done nothing for ages:


Still working on it, but getting there. Planning to be back to the loom in a couple of months (if not before)
