{My Lace Crocheted Gloves}

Proudly I show you my crocheted lace gloves; yes I made them myself. Not an easy lace pattern, from Magic Crochet, as the center was done around a thicker thread, but I managed. So please have a look here below as how they turned out. The last photos do show me wearing them, so you get a view of that as well. The lovely train case, in which I do store all my precious self made crocheted lace, is artfully done by no one less than our sweet artist Rebecca, from A Gathering Place. Below this post you find a link for checking it out.
Those flowers were all done individually, over a thicker thread of the same quality DMC thread.
They are very feminine accessories...
More in detail you can now see the individual flowers and also the other pieces of lace done in longer strips.
Have you done something like this?
Would love to hear from you.
My vintage train case from Rebecca's, A Gathering Place, does keep all my precious crocheted lace work. It is the perfect way to store it. Below the post you find a link about the train case.
Of course, romantic lace goes well with Roses & Gardenia in a French Baccarat crystal perfume bottle. 
Going to a wedding in my self made silk brocade sheath dress and self crocheted lace gloves.
Sewing and crocheting combined...

Du bist wirklich erstaunlich, das hätte ich nie hingekriegt. Und du hast einen guten Geschmack. Du siehst sehr schick aus mit Kleid und Handtasche.
    Schöne Grüße, Johanna

    like a gloved hand. I am so glad you shared them.
    My mom crocheted gloves for me when I was sixteen, for Easter. I have them framed and hanging in my bedroom. They stir fond memories.
    Love to you and Pieter,

I love crochet, wish I can do it again, got a wedding next month can I borrow the pattern or the glove? ;-) Nearly finish a tablecloth many years ago but couldn't get the corner right, tried and tried, give up in the end, must be the pattern. I unpick little by little make some table doilies. I'm big thick on alter the pattern, especially complicate pattern. Thanks for your message, love to have time to learn more on google+, don't know why I lost the interest on other things, the mind and time is busy thinking about how can I have more work to pay bills.
