Selected Patterns from "The Art of Bobbin Lace" by Louisa and Rosa Tebbs

This is a subject I find fascinating, but which I'm betting will be sufficiently unintelligible to most people to induce drowsiness. Actually, I'm a beginner at bobbin lace, and the patterns described here are, I'm pretty sure, far beyond my current abilities, even though apparently this book is aimed at beginners.

I'm starting a new job on October 7! I'm so excited! :9: The downside is, even less recording time. :( But I am still around!

Bobbin Lace is PL OK!

I can see how it would be fascinating for some, sleep-inducing for others. 8-)

Fascinating video, though. Never knew this existed. :shock:

Thanks!

I heard a show on the radio talk about this instrument, and how, eventually, the Glass Armonica's sounds were blamed for causing seizures and insanity, and even facilitated communication with the dead. :shock: Perhaps because it's a somewhat haunting sound?? I was hoping to find a work that spoke of this, but so far haven't been successful.

OK, so I confess I sped that one up to maybe 3 or 4 times its normal speed. :lol:
