So... it turns out I didn't get enough twill tape -_- 

I got it online from a place that only sells 1/4", 1/2", and 3/4" widths of twill tape and here I thought, "Alrighty, I'll get 2 yards of 1/2" and that'll be enough..."  

So I ordered 1" twill tape off of Amazon, and I think it should be enough, especially considering how it comes in a freaking 10 yard package. 


Oh, btw, I also feel the need to tell you guys that my supply list from my last post was missing one very important item. 

I ordered a Sluis Withof bobbin lace manual from Anneke Rejis!

It's been a long time...

According to my statistics, the last time I published a post was March of last year. 


Well, what I'd like to say now is essentially as follows: 

I've moved again (coming at you live from SoCal!) and while I've left the majority of my supplies behind with my parents, I have repurchased:
an embroidery hoop 
twill tape (to bind it)
some practice fabric (tulle)
and some embroidery thread (this time, DMC--as I have been unable to find Anchor).

new additions include: 

an awl (hopefully to serve as a useful replacement for a pricker) 
and a tambour needle.

I work full time now, and I'm going to start college at the end of the month... but maybe I can find some time here and there.

Pictures coming soon!

Heeeey =D

Hi everybody. 

I know it's been a long time since I've posted, but I've been settling into North Carolina and been busier than I have been in a really long time. 

Sadly, I haven't done any embroidery, or any form of needle anything, and I probably won't be able to for a while. I had to leave all of my supplies back in Cancun.

But I'll hopefully be able to get new ones! 


Now that I'm stateside, I will hopefully soon be able to accept credit/debit card payments on my Etsy store!!

Mega Massive Update

I moved!!!! 

I know I haven't been blogging lately (according to my records, I haven't published a "real" post since the end of December), but the reason why is that I was getting ready for a GIGANTIC move!! 

Some of you may know that I was living in Cancun, but NOOOW, I'm living in North Carolina!!! 



On a side note, when moving from a tropical climate to one that... well, isn't, make sure that you pack lots of heavy socks and wool items--especially if you're off the boat in the middle of the freaking winter.

This morning, I saw a puddle that had been iced over.


Mind. Blown.

30,000 PAGE VIEWS!



On another note, I'm considering using cotton for Buttaflies: Part II... 
Broader range of colors, more consistent with my other materials... I dunno. Any  opinions out there?

Happy New Year!

It's 2015! 

It's hard to believe that yet another year has passed, and while I can't say what this one holds for me or Lace (making) Adventures, I hope it's amazing!
