I was inspired to do this monogram for Joshua at his christening. When I saw him wearing the bonnet made by Ester Kiely and trimmed with Jackie Magnin’s Headford Lace, I decided I had to make something special to remember this occasion. Joshua is our ‘Headford Lace baby’ and has been part of the project even in-utero.

I attended the Introduction to Goldwork day class on July 7th. It was run by the RSN and took place over the Constant Knitter in Francis Street Dublin.
