I know this has nothing to do with crochet, but lacy things just attract me like a moth to a flame and I wanted to share. I came across some examples of intricately cut paper (what I call paper lace) and have fallen in love. What they are able to accomplish is just totally amazing! Of course, I wouldn’t want to think about the time involvement, but then again, designing, crocheting, and writing down a pattern isn’t exactly expeditious, either. The wonderful thing about this art is that some of the artists even sell templates that you can cut out yourself. Oh, I must stop running across other crafts that I would love to try my hand at because I seriously doubt I’m going to live to be 200!
