Noreen is fairly new to lacemaking but has done very well in a very short time. At our weekend course with a visiting tutor recently, she began a piece of Bruges flower lace. It's a lace made in sections so there are always threads to be finished off in each section. They will generally be cut at the end of the work when the pins are removed and the work is lifted from the 'pillow' - a day for celebration! We all share the excitement of a completed piece of lace!
You'll see her pattern is underneath her piece of lace. This is what guides her - the threads are woven by means of the bobbins that hold the thread, pins are put in to hold the threads in position till enough has been worked to allow you to remove some of the pins without the work pulling out of shape.
I'm sure the flower which I have recoloured, is one of Alp's rainbow doodles. They are so sweet!
