Bubbles

Bucks Point Sample
Lace Bubbles

He dado un paso adelante en mi aprendizaje del encaje de bolillos y he cambiado el encaje popular o de torchón por el encaje de fondo de tul. ✿

Se trabaja en horizontal sobre una almohada redonda, que yo llamo Cookie Pillow ("galletita"), haciendo rodar los bolillos sobre la almohadilla. Como estoy acostumbrada a trabajar con la almohada vertical típica española y a sujetar los bolillos en la mano completar esta muestra ha resultado ser todo un reto.

Los patrones de fondo de tul son normalmente muy pequeños y se usa un hilo muy fino. Lo que yo hago es agrandar el patrón y trabajar con hilo más grueso para poder ver lo que hago y aprender correctamente. ¡Esas baguillas del borde necesitan mejorar mucho!

¡Estoy disfrutando un montón de estas clases y del tiempo que dedico a practicar en casa!
Creo que por fin he encontrado mi estilo. Amor a primera vista. ♥

Bolillos: 19 pares y 2 pares para el reseguido.
Hilo: algodón n. 30.
Patrón: "Bubbles/Bulles" de Dentelle de Normandie por Florence Quinette (francés e inglés).

I took one step further in my bobbin lace learning and switched from peasant lace or torchon to point ground lace.

This lace is worked horizontally on a round pillow, which I like to call Cookie Pillow, rolling the bobbins over it. As I am used to work vertically with my Spanish bolster pillow holding the bobbins in my hands this little sample turned out to be quite a challenge! 

Point ground patterns are usually small and call for very thin thread. I enlarge the pattern and work with thicker thread to be able to see it clearly and learn how to work it properly. Those picots on the border are in need of some improvement!

I am enjoying my classes and practice time at home very much!
I think I found my lace style. Just in love with it. ♥

Bobbins: 19 pairs and 2 gimp pairs.
Thread: cotton n. 30.
Pattern: "Bubbles/Bulles" from Dentelle de Normandie by Florence Quinette (French & English).

Esta pasada primavera ha sido una temporada un poquito complicada que me ha tenido apartada del blog. ¡Pero estoy de vuelta!

This past spring was a difficult season and sadly I had to stay away from my blog --but I am back!

    1. Thanks! Perhaps they are only noticeable to trained eyes but those picots on the right border are awfully done.

  4. Bubbles indeed! They are perfect, too. This is so very pretty. You have much patience to work with the tiny thread.
    Wishing you cooler temperatures. :)

    1. Oh I wish I could work with thiner thread one day but I doubt my eyes can keep up. I love how these designs have a name and not just a reference number. Sometimes the name is very accurate like this one. :-)
      Wishing the same to you! We need cooler days desperately.
