A design

I don't know how this would work out for pulled thread, but I like it. I got the amoeba-looking parts by staring at a blank screen and drawing around the shapes that appeared on it. Somewhat like seeing pictures in the random dots on a popcorn ceiling, or the lines and splotches in marble. When the shapes appear to be real things, such as faces, it's called pareidolia. I don't know what you'd call seeing coherent, but random, shapes like this.…

No pulled thread in Wikipedia?

I tried "pulled thread" and got "drawn thread" (of course). No "pulled fabric" or "drawn fabric" either.

No "Dresden lace." No "deflected thread embroidery" (!what a name).

No "Ayrshire work" or "lace" or "embroidery." Just "sewed muslin," which is different.

"Embroidered lace" talks about embroidery on various net materials.

2.    Checker stitch

3.    Cushion stitches and satin stitch…

OK, here it is - finished - dried on a slick surface

This was "ironed" by wetting it down and drying it on top of the washing machine.

Now for something new. I will have to start drawing and come up with a new design. The oak leaves I'm going to work on burlap - they're already drawn on with dissolving ink. I had a mishap with a coffee mug but I don't think coffee got on the working area. A mug handle simply split off in midair, splashing coffee everywhere including into the keyboard of my brand new computer, onto part of the burlap,…
