While working on my leaf box project I came across this great free pattern for making needle lace leaves. I'm going to do a few of them for one of the sides of the leaf box. The detailed explanation and photos can be found on howdidyoumakethis.com
A third leaf started couched down on paper.
3 edges for the top of my leaf box finished.
Haven't decided yet on what I'll do with the 4th side. Leaves of some sort :)
Am also doing a bit of hardanger to make a few ornaments for Christmas gifts. This pattern comes from Beverly Merritt's Heritage Hardanger for Christmas. It's the Gladys design.
Now to make some tassels and attempt to put them together. It's been awhile but the instructions are excellent so that helps a lot.
