"In regards to yesterday's piece, the most similar item I have found is from the Karelian Isthmus.    The laces were sturdy and used to decorate aprons.  I find this to be part of the problem in looking for the sturdier…"

"Beautiful piece, Karen. Devon, regardless of what else it may be called, I would definitely classify this as a freehand lace.  It is an interesting piece on the evolutionary chain with both CTC as we know it, and plaiting technique.  Laces…"

"Yes!  Lia does talk about Ragusa lace.   I do not think I have read her article, though.  That would have jumped  out at me.   She was the person who first introduced me to leadwork.  I sought her out because I did not…"

"20200506_155425.jpg20200506_155417.jpg This is the cover of a book and a page that diagrams the technique of the giant tally.  I have also heard of this technique as leadwork.  Practical Skills in Bobbin lace has a diagram of similar…"

"I had not refreshed and seen your new post.  I have been calling these giant tallies, going in line with giant plaits.  But, I am not totally fixed on that name and have not published it anywhere as of yet. "

"     The giant tally weave we are talking about has an advantage in metal threads that is not seen in these pieces.  When it is worked in metal, it is easier to work and less destructive on the threads when you work in this…"
