A Christmas Star
This is the third in my series of bobbin lace Christmas decorations, and I think my favourite one yet. The patterns have come from an old Anna magazine. I have used the same thread as the other two, a DMC Cordonnet Special No 50. This thread is fine for cloth stitch, but it doesn't handle plaits and picots all that well. I was warned many years ago about using crochet threads, something about the direction of the twist. I may have to just remove the picots off it if I do any more.
Still, it is done, and will hang prettily on my Christmas tree in a few months.
