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!
