Thank you, Jenny for your friendly comment to my reticella. I'm visiting your blog right now, you have beautiful samples of reticella and teneriffe lace. Your first reticella is a lovely work. I will be happy to say hello in needlelacetalk. Greetings.

Well I can't learn it just yet but it's on my list of things to do. I am learning how to spin right now. I want to learn it all...lol if it is at all possible.
You have a great blog and linked it mine so I can see your work often. Your Teneriffe work is also beautiful. I do have templates for that and might try that soon.
