As Cyn mentioned the other day, she, Wanda, Joanne (she's got some great pictures of some of the lace samples in her post from the 10th. Go check it out. I'll wait here.), and I were in a lace class this past weekend taught by none other than Nancy Bush. She was a delightful teacher and I'd jump at the chance to take another class from her any day. I particularly enjoyed all the history we got about Estonia. Fitting for an Estonian lace class, no?
Since it's been covered so well already I thought I'd wait until I could show off the sampler in full blocking action. I'll have to apologize now. While having a checkered pattern on my blocking board is exceptionally useful for blocking purposes, it makes for less than ideal lace blocking pictures. But here you have it anyway. Tah-dah. (Sorry, Cyn, yours is blocking but the picture really didn't come out).

Another very entertaining part of class came from these little guys that kept peeking their heads around any of the closed mini blinds.
