"Another question for Laurie. Is there anyway you can tell by looking at the mesh whether it was made with the thread passed across the pattern as in Burano?"

"Thank you Laurie. I have seen people in Burano making needle lace and I think it is as you describe. At the time I thought it was odd, but I wasn't really processing what I was seeing. I guess I have done my part to expand the confusion by…"

"The reason the Burano mesh is square looking has to do with the way it is made. This is a pillow-made needlelace, rather than the handheld laces of Alencon and Belgium. In Burano a thread is passed across the pattern and pulled tight. The twisted…"

"Devon maybe the squareness of the ground could be an individual lace makers style or maybe they were having a bad day and their tension was tight? Thanks for the pictures and using ING."

Devon Thein commented on Lorelei Halley Administrator's group Identification-History
"What is it about the mesh of Burano that makes it look more brick like? That is always the descriptor. Also, frequently there is discussion about the fuzziness of the thread. Objectively, it looks to me as though the movements of the thread are the…"

"Calling it Old Flanders gives it a name, but doesn't tell us anything about where this type of lace was made, or exactly when. There are some similar laces in Tebbs, but without close up photos that would give us more certainty. "

"I think that mostly sewings were not usual. But there are several examples of tape/braid laces in LePompe 1559. Tape laces have to have sewings. But I also think there are some examples of braided/plaited laces in Lepompe which have a Flanders type…"

Karen Thompson commented on Lorelei Halley Administrator's group Identification-History
"Isn't there something about the very rectangular "alencon" mesh looking like bricks, is typical of Burano? And the rather fuzzy thread would add to my guess that it might have been made in Burano.  Just guessing. "

HAPPY NEW YEAR EVERYBODY 

I am resolving to finish 2 projects I have set up. One is a Binche learning piece, which is quite difficult for me. I am intimidated by it. The 2nd is a floral Bucks which I intend to decorate a purse. (Enlarged and worked in thick thread so it will hold up to use) This one also intimidates me. I have been using my cat as an excuse, but he has calmed down.  I keep on thinking of simple projects that won't take a lot of…
