Today I am going to post one of my favorite poems. This was written for a lace group for a special event.

This is a collection of lace flowers. The first thread used was an 80 cotton. Flowers to me, are lovely and an inspiration. Some of the thread used was a gold thread for contrast. It reminds me of dew drops.. The first pattern is from a class I took in the 1980's.
The second is a flower I designed, with a lovely butterfly. The pattern for the butterfly is one from Ullrike Voelcker. When I made the butterfly I used several colors of thread to blend into the pattern. The white thread is my favorite to work with and it is a 120/2 Egyptian Cotton.
The third collection of flowers is a lovely collection of flowers and leaves. The whole collection is 5 inches tall and 4 inches wide. Some of the flowers were drawn by Anny Noben-Selegers and I used some of her techniques. Others I used Withof Lace styles to complete.

This is my new hummer. You will notice he is the same size as the first, but the designing is different. The hummingbirds are so beautiful and I couldn't but help to design them with a little fantasy. This way they will be able to use the Withof patterns in them.
