I designed this and started, but never finished. It was on display at the Kohler Art Center as an example of the work in progress. I don't really like it any more, so it will continue to be just that.

I had some of my work in the Kohler Art Center also, I wonder if we were there at the same time?  They had a lace exhibit going on at that time.

We do have a group for GROS POINT, and one of our members has posted a simple pattern she uses for teaching the techniques.     http://needlelacetalk.ning.com/group/grospoint?groupUrl=grospoint&a...

La documentation sur la fabrication des dentelles est tellement rare que j'apprécie énormément d'avoir la possibilité de voir un travail en cours d'exécution. C'est le meilleur cours que je puisse avoir. Merci de nous l'avoir présenté.

No, I think you should keep that as is, and redesign it, - maybe with smaller, but more sections. If the large green ones are what you don;t like, then draw up the centre part the same, but do a couple of smaller leaves each side trather than the one big one.  See how that looks.  Play with the design a bit more. Maybe narro down where the pale pink scroll joins the deep plum colour so that scroll sits out and a bit more free at the end. - Try out different things. I am sure it will come right with just a bit of tweeking here and there.

(Been there - done that!!!!!!!! :) )  I love the deep plum colour! Yum!!!  :)

Maybe it is that I am afraid I am not up to it anymore. Also I do not like what I did on the bottom edge and I think the upper green sections are too large.  Maybe I could cut them off and fix the bottom by going over it.  The idea was to have something for a neckline.

I worked it in Tire Silk 100 and pearl cotton #12 for the padding.

Again I agree with Liz, I love your use of colour.    It is a good way to show the way the padding is done, although I think it is a shame that you don't really like it anymore.     What thread did you work this in?

It may be quite useful as a work-in-progress, to show how the raised work is done.

Again - I love your coloured G.Pt.
