Bees, Birds and Butterflies in Lace
by Edna Sutton & Mary Moseley
The authors turned to their stamp collections for inspiration.when designing this impressive collection of patterns for bees, dragonflies, ladybirds, birds, butterflies and moths. Simpler designs are presented first in each section, leading on to the more complex. The patterns use several techniques, including torchon, Binche, Valenciennes, Duchesse, Russian tape, Bruges flower, needle, Brussels and Irish.
Each pattern is presented with instructions, pricking, working diagrams and black and white photograph. A section of colour photographs of many of the pieces and the stamps that inspired them, is included.
In excellent condition except for very minor abrasions to dust jacket.
