Baby's First Picots

Comments None

Today I had my sixth bobbin lace lesson at the Lace Museum, and today I was introduced to plaits and picots. It feels strange after four weeks of torchon to not be doing groundwork!

It is fun to watch my technique get better as I work from top to bottom on a bookmark. I’m sure that as usual my second go-around will help shore up the things that I am slowly learning on my first run through.

This week, I was lucky enough to be working alongside a woman at the museum who was applying braids and picots to a much more advanced piece of lace. Hopefully it was a little peek into the future. :)

For next week, I need some perle cotton, so it’s time for my first trip to my (closest) local needlework shop. Hopefully I’ll be able to control myself to just the perle cotton but I make no promises. Being surrounded by fiber! You know how it is. :)
