A job or hobby for the incredibly patient..
Louis: And I think spacial awareness and creative ability also comes into it.
For such an old craft, Louis, you have made the perfect presentation, indeed. I love that these skills are being passed on to the younger generations.
Louis: Thank you, Ginnie. I bought a baptism set for my youngest grandchild in an active lace making establishment. Since then, the boy was born and later baptised in that set. Yes, every visit I make to one of these European countries, I make one big spend that I can't really explain. Like buying shares in a brewery on the Dingle peninsula in Ireland. The boy could have been baptised just as effectively without the set.
Perfect treatment Louis
Louis: Thank you Bill

Kantklossen..... I like this a lot, Louis. They make the most beautiful patterns, (the handmade that is)
Louis: Very special. Way back, I think it was 1978, I visited Antwerp. At that time it was not strange to see a woman in traditional dress, on a street corner or in front of a lace shop, busy doing kantklosssen. In all the Belgian towns and cities I have visited, there was not one such person to be seen on the streets.

It looks a complex business Louis.
Louis: Way too complex. I have never seen a man doing it smile
Nice treatment, Louis.
Louis: Thank you, Tom
Your treatment of this image takes we viewers back to many years ago. We live not far from the city of Nottingham which was the centre of the lace making industry in the U.K., I believe there might still be one company left in business.
Louis: Thank you, Brian. I know of at least one lace making company in Brugge.

Beautifully composed and processed.
Louis: Thank you, Beth. Glad it worked.
Like from a yellowed book - excellent presentation.
Louis: Thanks Mary - this is one of those where I knew the conversion I wanted to apply, before I took the picture.
