* Flowered Lace

Flowered lace
Flowered lace sample -- not a render!

La muestra de encaje que más me ha gustado de todas las que he hecho hasta ahora (algunas de las cuales nunca verán la luz porque las arranqué a la mitad). El hilo de contorno no es todo lo grueso que debería y no destaca demasiado pero como tengo la intención de hacer algo "serio" con este patrón ya escogeré mejor los hilos para el definitivo.

Podéis encontrar este precioso diseño en el libro Motivos de Encaje de Bolillos: plantas y flores de Bridget M. Cook.

My favourite sample of all I have made including some that I will never show you because I unpinned them halfway. The gimp isn't thick enough and doesn't pop up as it should but next time I will make a wiser choice of threads as I plan to make something "serious" with this pattern again.

You can find this beautiful design in the book Plants and Flowers in Lace by Bridget M. Cook.

  2. Oh wow, this is really beautiful lace! I can't imagine working with such fine thread. Gorgeous.
    We have snow here in the foothills today so we are loving it.
    Have a wonderful week!

    1. Thanks! Actually this thread isn't fine at all, for bobbin lace standards is quite thick. Time will come when I will work with finer thread and make prettier laces. ;-)
      Enjoy the snow! Here we're having too much wind. I don't like when it's windy before the spring...

  5. Em sembla ideal! L'emmarcaria tal i com has fet la foto, tan contrastat amb el negre queda súper actual!

    1. Sí, jo també trobe que és una bona idea emmarcar la mostra o fer una targeta amb ella per regalar. Gràcies per la idea!!
