I like the piece you are talking about quite a bit and I like the use of colored gimp. The difficulty I've encountered is - depending on what color is behind the lace - either the white is lost, or the gimp color is lost. I made an insert for a tea tray using white linen thread and Londonderry linen gimp in the maple sugar color. I had quite a time choosing a fabric to put behind the lace so both the gimp and the lace would show up. The fabric was necessary because the bottom of the tea tray was basically cardboard glued onto plastic. (A thin layer of plexiglass went on top of the lace.) What seemed to work best was a background color that was complementary to the gimp color, but lighter

in shade. 

Another problem I've had is when the colored gimp gets diluted by the many crossings of the other (white or off-white) lace threads.

Don't know if anyone else struggles with these things, or has solutions or suggestions?

I only just now noticed this part of the forum. I looked up the blatt design and the colored gimp is very effective!

Here is somebody who worked the skaeve blatt design with a colored gimp:

Thanks Eileen.  I added it to the pages of resources (below the member avatars)

I have Lia's book.  The title is "Blonde", published in 2009.  Blonde is like Chantilly with the primary difference in the colored portions being that Chantilly is worked in half stitch, and Blonde is worked in Cloth stitch.  The colored Chantilly is very open, while the Blonde colored portions are dense.  The book has both simple and complex patterns.

I believe there is a book by Lia Baumeister on Chantilly.  Can someone give me particulars, and a description of the contents?

Comment by Lorelei Halley Administrator on January 23, 2012 at 5:57pm

Can someone suggest a better, more typcial photo of Blonde that I can link to under "Varieties of Point Ground Laces"?

Also a good and typical example of Bayeux?
