Another, and different, design

Having a go at the modernist abstract. The thin crossways lines are how big the sections would appear in the frame, one at a time. I have the cloth in the frame (putting it in was a job). I'll draw the pattern on freehand because I'm tired of trying to figure out how big to print it, converting pixels into inches and so on.

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.
