Center of my first mat.
It realized from a model of Bridget Mac Cook's basic book.
It required the use of eighty bobbins.
My first spirit stitches
The realization of spirit stitches is a great pleasure and satisfaction for a lacemaker.
It's the same family than Cluny lace. Torchon lace is characterized by a edge in
shape of fan. It's a continuous thread lace.
Contrary to Cluny lace, it has a ground named Torchon ground.
It's a lavander bag with a small torchon lace which required more eighty bobbins.
It's a personal creation, without pretence nevertheless.
It was very practiced to Puy en Velay such as Cluny lace. However, it's difficult
to know its origin because this lace has been made everywhere.
It's especially used for edge and insertion. Very simple, this charming lace is practised
particularly by beginner lacemakers. Like Cluny lace, it's made with a big thread,
so it's a solid lace.
