pins and needles

ever the perfectionist… hansje contacted me regarding the article i wrote earlier today, i described her new hobby as ‘crochet’ which involves small curved needles (if i remember correctly from school art lessons) what she is learning… is in fact embroidery (or lace embroidery) using a series of cotton bobbins, unless i have got it wrong again :), does anybody know if that is the right term? by the way those chunky arms pictured are not hansje’s…

oops i just checked, wrong again, the correct term would appear to be ‘lace-making’ or rather ‘bobbin lace‘, embroidery is another thing altogether… phew…
