A Lace Book Workshop

What a privilege it was to spend a day making a lace book with Suzy from

Here is my cover almost finished. I chose a theme of vintage toddlers and subtle colours.

 And here is my page spread - we took all day to get this far.

 Here are Vivienne, Virginia and myself, holding our books proudly.

And a close-up of Virginia's cover with her lovely hand felted piece...

What a delightful day we had together. Suzy was a wonderful and patient teacher, and her suggestions and help in colour and fabric selections was eye-opening. We learned a lot from watching how each other's pages evolved. 

We delighted in Suzy's quilts, lace books and her amazing studio filled with beauty in every nook and cranny, but amazingly set out so things were in reach and in view with such decorator's flare and style.

Our lace books waiting to be lovingly completed... Hugs to you, Suzy! I can't wait to see them all finished!
