Identifying a piece of lace - anybody?
4 Replies

I don't remember where I got this, but it is beautiful. It is cuff-sized. Needlelace of some sort. Can anybody give me any information about this kind of work?…Continue

A knot I can't identify

First neat sampler

I'm calling this neat because Lorelei said it was, but it would look a lot better stretched on a frame. There are around 25 patterns represented here. Let me see if I can enumerate them in order. I'm going to order a square embroidery frame for working on things like this.Square 1: Ringed back over 4 threads, 3 rings. Ringed back over 3 threads, two rows. Offset back stitch to take up the space at the bottom.Square 2: Fancy ringed back stitch with 4-sided stitches. Not too happy with…See More

"Ripple stitch would look good as a river filling. As for your sampler it is an inspiration and the best resource I've discoverd on the net (by far) for pulled thread stitches."

Lorelei Halley Administrator commented on Claudia Crowley's blog post Stitch practice
"Ripple stitch is one of the variants of double backstitch that I most favor. I keep thinking about using it to depict a river. I like the neatness of your sampler. I didn't do that, and I now regret it."

Right now I'm working on learning pulled thread stitches on a loose-weave linen material. I have done a simple but complete piece you can see at my blog or photos, and I'm working on another.

A backstitchy kind of thing and satin stairsteps

I don't like it much. There are many prettier backstitch patterns like ringed back, small ringed back, squares, and Agnes Leach's #37 which I independently worked out. 

This next is hard to count right, and wasn't; and as you can see the blocks should be connected differently…

Diagonal 4-sided stitch

Two kinds. The corner-to-corner ones and two little V's of the side-to-side ones. Front and back shown. To get the squares the same on the two kinds the first are worked over 4 threads and the second over 6. I can do these readily while looking at the diagrams at Lynxlace but haven't memorized them yet.…
