Lace-making is not my only passion. I am also a sporty cyclist and a passionate swimmer am just as creative in the kitchen as I am with the lace pillow and I love to surprise my husband and my large 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 works.
Lace-making is a creative meditation for me.
