Heather is a wonderful enabler. She had a copy of Victorian Lace Today with her over the weekend. Amazon.com is a wonderful thing because a copy was ordered for me on Saturday and it arrived today!
Flipping through and reading the first few pages I found this! OMG I realize this is an example photo in the book of Victorian lace but I have to somehow learn enough about creating lace to recreate this pattern. I have to have that knitted lace giraffe!
