I started it in September 2009 and added the last bead in January this year. It's waiting to be made into an eyeglass case, so technically it's not finished yet. I was waiting for warmer weather to finish it because the back needs to be sprayed with water and then left to dry. My next excuse was that I didn't like the maroon felt that came with kit and is intended to be used as the lining. That excuse has failed now because I've found some faux suede that is the right colour. Better get on and finish it!

The design is by Sandra Straughair. I think I started this piece on a workshop with Sandra in 2001 and it finally came off the pillow last week. I'm quite pleased with the result - it actually looks like lace! I'm known for liking a challenge but it did drive me mad at the end. I have decided the next piece of lace I do is going to be a bit more relaxing.
So who want to take bets on how long it be beforeI get round to doing my second post :-)
