"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…"
"Lorelei, I have been doing a search for Sulky Thread. The one I have been using is Guttermann Sulky 30, but there seems to be a Sulky brand like there is a Guttermann brand. Are the two one & the same or two different brands?"
"Thank Kate & Lorelei, I think I’ll mend with the same thread. It’s a variegated Gutermann Sulky 30 so it would be hard to match. I’m planning to anchor it in the back of my mounting stitches, then try to recreate the path of…"

Pattern Number 5 from Pamela Nottingham's book "Bedforshirte Lacemaking". Worked in 90/2 linen thread. My first ever bobbin lace hankie edge, first time using linen thread, first time for curved foot-sides, and first time for these flowers .
I have been crocheting since a young child, learnt tatting as a teenager, introduced to bobbin lace in my 20's & needlelace in my 40's. My favourites are those done with a needle, especially reticella, drawn thread, & tenneriffe lace. Bedfordshire is my favourite of the bobbin laces, which I am trying to teach myself.
