This is a quick update before we travel to visit Sylvia. The veils are coming along well. I have Rachel's basted and am working on all of those wrapped connecting bars. Working on a rounded three dimensional project has it's challenges. I'm used to point lace being stretched taunt while basting. This is free hanging, but then the finished piece does not have to lay flat. Interestingly, I've found that because of this I am stitching with both hands. I'll be going along with my left hand, then switch over to my right when the directions change and back again sometimes every other stitch. There are advantages to being fairly ambidextrous. The next update will be in a few weeks. I won't be working on the veils at all while on vacation. I'm going to enjoy Florida weather after the recent cold snap and snowfall in South Carolina.
