Finished Spiders, Starting Border

Bobbin Lace Sampler - WIP

While we were blabbering away, chatting about how bobbin lace is made, I kept working on my sampler, and huzzah! The body section, which sampled different spider types, is finished! All those ends there are left to thread through backing fabric if I chose to frame it in the end; they’ll be clipped off neatly if I decide to use it in a doily-esque capacity.

Now I’ve started the border, just, and will probably be working on that for some time, so it might be a while before I share this again. The border samples different ground patterns, about an inch or two of each, so there won’t be anything interesting to see until I get through a bunch of them. I’ve only gotten through a couple of rows here, but I’m already so excited to be working on something new!

    Oh my goodness! This is amazing to see – to witness the process and the progress. I would never try making lace, but I am enjoying YOU making lace immensely! Thank you for all the effort to share.

      I’m so glad you’ve enjoyed these posts, Pam! I really wasn’t convinced they’d be interesting or make any sense at all – but people do seem to like seeing the lace stuff, so I thought I’d give it a go! I’m really really pleased to share it with people who are interested!
