German Easter Markets and Bobbin Lace







While living in Germany I always looked forward to the 4 weeks before Easter because all over Europe there was so many wonderful Easter Markets to explore. The base paper would publish a list of the Easter Markets for us all to attend. Sometimes, I travel to 6 or more on a single weekends. Most of the time I traveled with a friend but a couple of time I set off on my own and finding the Easter Market was as much fun as the Easter Market itself. I collected endless textiles, laces, painted and carved eggs, pottery, and on and on. During the next several weeks I will be posting picture of these artist and all the wonderful art that they created. Unfortunately, I do not remember all the names of the towns I visited. I did venture to France one weekend and was so amazed at all the French Chocolate shops which I took many pictures of too. The French Chocolate was like pieces of art too.

Because we are chatting about "Vintage Laces" and Europe on "CQI" I decided to beginning by showing you all the above two bottom pictures of a Lovely German Lady creating "Bobbin Lace" and some of the laces at her booth at a Easter Market. The next two photos show a bobbin lace bunny and rooster which was a gift from my Dear Friend Ulla who was my neighbor in Ettinghausen, Germany. I collected several more bobbin lace creations from the above artist and others but never did find a bobbin lace "Rose" along the way. One day I hope I can find a bobbin lace Rose to embellish "My CQ of My Dreams".

Those are beautiful pieces you've collected. If you were there now, you'd get pieces of lace for your CQ. =)
