Thursday, 11 December 2008
I am currently working on two pieces of lace (although neither is moving much due to university final year work load), at the top is another collar of the same size as the previous one, and again drafted from a photocopy of an antique piece.
Piece of lace below collar is a relatively small edging which is a bit of light relief from the larger piece.
Hopefully they will both be finished when I graduate next summer.
Back to BA (hons) final collections
I drafted the pattern from photocopy of the antique piece of lace, which was originally made around 1911, and was a design by Harry Armstrong. I changed the nine pin edge as well, and put a more modern edge on it.
This was my entry into the Hilda Marston Trophy competition at the Nottinghamshire Bobbin Lace Society summer Lace day, 2008.
