I like to understand how the old pieces were made.  This gives me ideas about how to use various stitches in my own laces.  I also want to develop an understanding about what stitches were typically used in each historical style.  Not necessarily because I want to duplicate them.  Partly to develop more confidence about identifying old laces accurately.  I've done this to a large extent with bobbin lace, but I'm still a novice at needle lace.

Hi Lorelei

Wow that is all to complicated for me,

remember I am not a lace maker like you,I just love it and collect it.

I feel so good that you can use my photos.


I did make my samplers but I don't go into deatail like you do.

I wonder what the probable date on this is.  I see only corded Brussels and twisted buttonhole.  The twisted stitches are grouped in 3s, or with rows of 3s and 4s alternating.  There are some cordonnet rings lined with twisted buttonhole, with another row inside that and a bh ring.
