IOLI: Introduction to Bobbin Lace (2nd post)

 Continued from previous post ....

The next project:

'Continental Bobbin' - needs a re-do, a few mistakes!

I used perle coton No 8:   colors 3823, 392, 353, 818, 644, 758

There is a bonus pattern included [which I have not attempted], Jean Jagendorf's Midland's Bobbin.   I have the lace bobbins wound, and hope to give it a try (soon).

The final project:  First Torchon Sampler

I am using perle coton No. 8:  colors 743, 799, 224, 471, and 3042.  I need to finish it!

I learned A LOT in 4 days.   Loads of thx to Karen Thompson & IOLI.  Fingers crossed there will be another Bobbin Lace class beyond the basics.   Meanwhile, practice, practice, practice : )   Cross - Twist - repeat

If you are interested in taking A 12-Hour Introduction to Bobbin Lace , it is being offered via the Lace Museum.   Link Here:   https://thelacemuseum.org/workshops.html.

Lovely lace! I enjoyed my experiments with bobbin lace and I think it's beautiful. However, I realized it's really not for me. I will enjoy seeing what you make!
