bold for stuff you've done, italics for stuff you plan to do eventually and normal for stuff you don't intend to do ever unless you move to Alaska.

I used Regia surf wool and cotton blend in a nice bright color combo. Coral, lilac, pink and white. The stitch pattern is my favorite lace pattern: feather and fan.
