Hooked on lace / Enganchado en encaje / Accroché sur la dentelle / Enganchado na renda


(A note from Treadlemusic/Doreen) For those of you who may wonder at this “Reblog”…..my bloggy friend, and his photo-graphical eye has captured a wondrous world of artistry in thread that (I see) easily will enter my/the world of the quilt stitching process. These “thread-flakes”, resembling “snowflakes”, are such a total wonder to view. Please, take a few moments to take it all in…………….

Hooked on lace – Part 1.

It was in summer 2016, when we visited to old vicarage, called Kulttuuripappila Sylvi (1804), in Pieksämäki. The distance between Helsinki and Pieksämäki is 306km / 190mi. Why we drove to Pieksämäki? Well, there was very interesting, maybe unique exhibition of laces.

Lady Silja Keränen inherited a big amount crocheting yarns from her mother in 2008. After thinking for a while what to do with them, she decided to crochet. Wise decision! Models Silja searched from Internet and she crocheted the majority of them from photos. Until now, she has crocheted more than 450 crochets and in the exhibition, there were about 400 crochets. Think about it.

Enjoy these lace doilies!

    These are incredibly beautiful.
    My mom learned how to make lace (she never shied away from anything) when they lived in Brussels for 20 years. She has also made many incredible masterpieces that we have framed and I have several in my cabinet of treasures
    Thanks for sharing

      Oooooo……you are so fortunate to have those. My mom didn’t do any of that but her mom did and that’s who taught me to knit & crochet…..forever grateful, too, but not on that level!!!!!!!! Glad you enjoyed the “Reblog”!!!!

  3. I am hooked on lace, too. Every time I come across a hand-made one I can’t resist adding it to my collection.
