There are also a lot of old filet booklets (expired copyright) available for free on these 2 sites:

Lacis sell reproductions of some old Filet Books - I think they were originally French, from around 1929 era. I have seen some "Originals", and I have one of the Lacis reprints. A friend bought a couple of them, and  did not want this one.  They have Lots of patterns - tiny, so they need enlarging, - but they are graphs of the lace or photos with graph lines over them. Lots of flowers, cherubs etc. They may be something for you to look at with a view to patterns. they are large sized soft cover books. check out the Lacis website.

Thank you... It is mostly my design..as I had to rechart it to fit. I was on a mission to withdraw threads from linen and make a deep edging.. then I had to find a flower I could re-arrange, not an easy task. Don't think I will try it again

Another beauty. Gosh! Your work is wonderful; 

Where did this pattern come from - or is it your own design?
