Karen Quickfall's Lace Mat

Hiya Folks,
So - the wonderful Karen has a beautiful lace mat (I don't know what to call it!).

I love this.

Time to Brag - My Bookmark

Hiya Folks,
Ok, now it's my turn to brag. This is a bookmark I made my good friend Rachel. It took me two years to complete and is only the third thing I've ever made (two pincushions before). Ok, maybe I should say only the third thing I've ever finished!
Let's see if Blogger will let me load all of these....

Not bad for a beginner!

And it fulfils the Useless Ruskin category! In fact, I have been honored with being given the trophy for the moment - though something else is in the pipeline and I may lose my honour!

So - winner for the most Useless Ruskin for having a bookmark made of Ruskin - UNDER GLASS IN A FRAME!

:) I'm so proud.  Misha

Karen Quickfall's Letter Holder Thingy

Hiya Folks,
Well, here's another example of Useless Ruskin.

Karen has made a lovely letter holder thingy for the wall.

The bottom bit is full of Ruskin Lace postcards.

It's an early work - by a great teacher!

Karen Quickfall's Mobile Phone Holder

Hiya Folks,
Yes, it's true. It's insane. But it's true.

I kid you not.

She must be insane.

Hmmm, I wonder if my phone fits?

Typical Ruskin Workspace

Hiya Folks,
Thought it might interest those who have never given it a shot before. You don't need much room to do Ruskin - and here's what a normal workspace looks like:
It says 'I'm not organised' - but I am, really!

Who's gonna help me steal it?

Ruskin Lace Beads

Hiya Folks,
You read that right - Beads.

In Ruskin Lace, if you aren't familiar - you have to have wooden beads for closures when necessary. These little wooden beads have to be lovingly covered like this:

I have yet to do one.
I'm afraid.
Hold me.
