"Sandra I think the book by Barley is the one to use. She is a well known author and artist in this particular form of lace.  Have you done any needle lace before this? If not, perhaps you should start with a stitch sampler."

"Thanks for them both.  The first picture simply showed the grid over a flower drawing, this one has the details of the product."

An alternative to using grid paper

If you should ever be without grid paper this might be useful. Especially for practice pieces [which is all I am capable of thus far :0)]. I purchased it at JoAnn's. $5 w/out a coupon. It is clear, heavy plastic with a printed grid. Can be used indefinitively, I guess. Each one square inch has 16 squares or 64 smaller squares. Just place it over your design and copy. I've attached pictures. Sorry if this has already been discussed. Thought I'd share just in case it's useful to someone else.

"Does silk thread last longer than cotton? Which should be used for heirloom pieces?"
