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...

Right-o, I feel a right old fool now.

I must say that I'm incredibly disappointed to discover that you have not learnt woodworking as yet. Every moment you fail to construct items of furniture using nothing more than a lathe, some chicken wire, and an old bathtub is a moment I cry a little on the inside.
