The one on the left shows some of the many variations that a little experience could come up with. The diamonds include cloth or whole stitch, half stitch, cloth and twist and a compound spider variations. The grounds include torchon (ct pin ct), simple rose (ct throughout), double torchon (ctct pin ctct), twisted torchon (ctt pin ct), honecombe and finally, dieppe ground (ct pin ctt). I originally designed the bookmark to develop the skills of one of my school students as she worked up to making a fan.
I am very glad I did!! I love how nice fan sticks can lift a piece of lace.
Next post I will show you the remainder of my 25 tatted motifs...now complete, but for 4 ends to sew in...
I will also show you the progress made on one of my paper piecing quilts :)
Til then, happy lacemaking,
