Making a real pattern

I have no doubt that I can do it. Just need to draw something up. Probably abstract floral based on Jacobean patterns.. Nothing too complicated. My brother the artist suggested a cityscape. I could do it on graph paper or maybe better yet on the iPad and print it. Then put the fabric over it and Trace it with some carpenter's chalk we have around (maybe --if not I will order some kind of marker). This looks like a fun project. Suggested by Lorelei.

Disadvantages: It's slubby…

Just joined: pulled thread, drawn fabric, 2 examples

I only discovered this site about a week ago. Lorelei of Lynxlace appears to run it. 

Several years ago I did a lot of practice on burlap. Using #10 thread on burlap is about the same proportion as finer thread on linen. This year I bought three yards of fairly loose-weave linen with a much finer weave, although not as fine as in regular pulled-thread lace work. 

I've uploaded some pictures of pulled-thread word and intend to load more on my Photos page. This pattern is…

Square backstitch

"Yes, likewise. This is a nice one. Ringed backstitch, while pretty, does not have that effect."
