quick lace update

Hi, I've really enjoyed making lace again, I've sort of got it into my head to sample narrow laces and make up my equivalent of a pattern book to document the lace. This will mean that I will have a note of what the style of lace is, where the pattern is from ( which book, which page) the threads used and a small section of the pricking which will help if trying to match threads if any become discontinued.

I must admit that I tend to be good at starting things.............

We will see how this goes!!


Progress so far



Oh, just incase photo 5/365 confused you, here is another shot.



meanwhile, back to making dinner :-)

I love the lace sample, and I do hope you continue your project for a while, anyway. I also start much more than I finish! :)
