I did try!!! My friend send me the bobbins and the cushion to make lace. It looks so easy seeing others making lace and throwing the bobbins over each other. For me it is not easy at all!!! But I did try!!!
First I held the cushion in the length. The bobbins and thread ended up into a big mess and I didn't know how to keep them in place!!! So then I decided to try on a table and turn the cushion. In that way I can place the bobbins on the table to keep them in place and see what I am doing.
But easy??? No for me it is not easy at all and I guess I have to go and find a teacher to help me. It has given me respect for all those people that make lace.
