Do you remember the design challenge opened by Lorelei in May? http://laceioli.ning.com/forum/topics/photos-to-look-at

Conditions were: a small mat 4 x 6 inches, cloth stitch, half stitch and tallies.

So here is my lace:

I used two mouline threads (various nuances of beige, yellow and brown, gray-blue). The drawing is also enclosed. Try to make your own design!

Great Work!

I found this on internet and I think it is worth sharing. Very interesting way how to work with bobbin lace

Yes, it's very inventive. I greatly appreciate this search for new lace ideas!

That is fascinating.  The portraits require such control of technique.  But I like the embryo best, I think.

Here's that lace I promised. I was finally able to finish it!

That is marvelous.  I love the way your changed stitches as the tapes widened.  The 2nd from the bottom, did that one require new threads for the right hand half?  Is that some kind of star ground?  I don't recognize it.   And the tallies are perfectly placed.

Lorelei

Thank you!

The working order in the tape was reversed - I started to make the wider part of the tape and then I removed a few threads. The ground in the 2nd tape from the bottom (right hand half) is also called "chaos ground" or "pearl ground" (or may be it has once more names) and here is one half stitch and one whole stitch over and over again changed (in both horizontal and vertical directions).

I have heard of chaos ground, but didn't know how to make it.  Thanks for the diagram.

I remember making this binche!  It was a bear.  Hard to see both in my mind and on the pillow.  But nothing else looks like it

Here is a piece posted on facebook today. It fits the bill of just a few techniques, but still comes out very interesting. Just half stitch and sewings.
