The significance of pursuing this avenue for my BJP is that I have a great admiration and interest in lace and the many varieties being created. This is my way of studying and understanding the lines and their interactions. I have learned already that bead count and measuring out pivot points is important. I had quite a bit of time involved in this piece and didn't want to start over due to time constraints. I may try this particular lace at a later date to gauge my improvement.
I'm sorry I haven't shared my inspiration piece of actual lace, but it is a pretty common lace that many of you will recognize. Since I don't know yet what shape I want my project to be, I am working on a large cloth approximately 11" wide by 12" high. I had originally wanted to display my pieces on embroidery hoops, but decided I didn't really like the combination of the lace and round hoop. I may cut these down and attach them to a stiff product such as cardboard cushioned with batting, about the size of an ATC . Hopefully, after I complete a few more samples I will know more what I ultimately want to do with them.
