Make, learn and talk about needle lace.
I have a couple projects started but not finished. I'll post photos soon.
Hi I have a couple or so projects started and really must get on with them. The latest one is a 3-d poppy but I have only done half a petal so far. This is the second time it has been started, the first time the petal was too big and the wrong colour red, I wanted a more orangy one which I sort of have. Another design I am currently laying done the cordonnette for is a design from a piece of wallpaper. Again I ought to get on with it but time seems to be running away with me. Will post photos as these designs progress a little more.
hey Teri dear am back .. I have got two projects on hold due to my wedding and post wedding shifting of residence. would love to share it here as soon as any real progress happen as I have practically no time . :(
The orange stitches on the far right and far left are interesting. I'm eager to see it finished.
My own work in progress... I don't have pictures yet, but I am in the design stage for my next project. I want to make a collar so I can wear my work! It has two inspirations: Lorelei's bobbin lace pattern here, and Mary Verhaar's floral design here.
About Lorelei's collar, I like the neat edging around it, and the way a few petals and leaves artfully overflow the edge. I also intend to place my largest details at the nape of the neck and the front ends of the collar, as Lorelei does. However, I want roses, and I like the way Mary drew the thorns and the way her flowers twine upwards, so I'm drawing ideas from her picture, too. Thank you to both ladies for making their creativity available to share! :)
As for the actual working of it, I think I shall have to split it into three pieces, and join them when I do the final outline. That must be addressed in the design stage. And I intend to use the Alencon ground, because I like the look and want to learn it. This will be a traditional-loking piece, I think.
