For paintings of the garments worn at the time LePompe was published, see this.  Look about 1/3 down the page. 

Both the 2nd and 3rd and 5th are from LePompe, the oldest known pattern book, dating from the mid 16th century.

Liz - what I posted yesterday was a link to an album of photos on facebook. If you aren't on facebook or a member of that particular group, their software might not be willing to show it to you. I posted the link in our section LINKS.

The email I just received give the link to here, Lorelei, but your message and query are not here, and I cannot find them in the Main page or forum.  I am not good at searches on computers, unfortunately, so I cannot put in my bit about the lace and instructions you are asking about. Grr! computers - especially Windows 10 and it's updates!!!!!!!!

Maybe the letter will appear later on, as I have noticed things have been slow showing up lately for some reason.  I have found messages on the site, and got the notification the following day!   

Don't stress about it - I LOVE the site, and won't be leaving, ..!! I know these glitches are Not your fault and can't be helped.

Happy Mothers Day to you, and all Mums out there.

Jenny, if I didn't know, I'd likely not spot it. You must be so relieved - and likely a bit more confident now, too.

Comment by Elizabeth Ligeti on April 18, 2018 at 8:53pm

Wow! I wish I could repair things that neatly. Very well done. If you don't mention it, no-one will ever know.

Comment by Jenny on April 18, 2018 at 2:47pm

Thanks Lorelei & Kate. When I take the pin out, I think it will be hard to find. I am reasonably happy with it & will gift it to whom it was intended. It is the second one I have done, the first one was not Square so I redid my pricking and did another one, only to cut it. I really was not looking forward to doing another yellow one, it is my least favourite colour. Next will be a blue on for me. I know my friend will love it, and probably never use it as intended. It may end up as a doily and will only be washed by hand if ever.

Thanks for the links to the threads. I think ordering on line for threads will be much cheaper than ordering fabric. I know people that pay horrendous prices to bring in fabric from OS

Hi Jenny, well done that’s a really ‘fix’. Kate

Comment by Lorelei Halley Administrator on April 17, 2018 at 10:32pm

It looks quite good.  Success.

Comment by Jenny on April 17, 2018 at 9:30pm

I've had a go at fixing it. The best I can do.

Jenny

Here is the link to the Sulky site. From their phone number (by the arrangement of numbers) I deduce that they are American. And this may be a problem for you in terms of shipping costs.

https://www.sulky.com/products/thread/cotton/   The website does have a section on international orders.

and here is another, but also unfortunately, American.
