Bobbin Lace

Rose Collar

I was a beginner at bobbin lace and had been teaching myself for about a year, with the helpful encouragement of all the friendly folks on Arachne. This collar used 40 pairs of Bockens 90/2 linen thread. The pattern is from E.-L. Kortelahti's Roses in Bobbin Lace.

Miniature Torchon Tablecloth

New! I have provided the pricking for the tablecloth. With Joan's permission, it is named after her daughter, Andrea. It should print at roughly the right size: 8" long and 5.75" wide. Ten dots to the inch, measured along the diagonal. Because I did not design this with lace design software, the grid might be slightly off at times.
