About me

 

Lace-making is not my only passion, I am also a sporty cyclist and a great swimmer. In the kitchen I am just as creative as with the lace pillow and I love to surprise my husband and my big family (three adult children) with culinary delights. I grow my own fruits and vegetables in our garden; and I love being outside, where I find the most interesting inspirations for my bobbin lace making.

 

Lace-making is a creative meditation for me.
