Those are all beautiful! Lace making is one art that I have never been able to understand or do. I have a great appreciation for it.

Wat mooi Emmy! Je moeder maakt prachtig kant. Wat jammer dat mijn moeder dat niet kan ;-). En wat fijn ook dat jij er zulke mooie dingen mee kunt maken. Dat moet voor haar ook mooi zijn om te zien.

En natuurlijk blijft ze dit nog heel lang doen...

Your Mother is a very talented lady. I am a complete beginner at bobbin lace and have managed some samples and a bookmark or too - (need more practice I think!)
How nice that you mother is keen for you to use.

Your mother must have a lot of patience as well as artistic skill.

Ik zie dat je moeder een vlijtig kantkloster is, erg mooi werk. Prachtig tulekantje met de sneeuwklokjes onderaan.

I just started looking into bobbin lace and love the fact that this post addresses it! And the pieces are beautiful. As is the assisi project. Such dainty colors.

Such beautiful bobbin lace! Makes me want to pull out my unfinished project and get started again when I have time (unfortunately it has been so long, I'll ahve to do a small practice piece first).

Beautiful lace. WE also have beautiful lace traditions here in Russia, I am trying to learn some bobbin lace.

The little people are lovely, there is a lace museum on the island of Burano in the Venetian Lagoon. There was one piece I remember that had paths connecting people, lovely.
