So I love duchesse lace --> but I haven't been able to get the manual on it =/ So, I've been winging it!
I drew up the pattern on some millimeter graph paper (not that I got specific, just a basic free hand doodle).
I pinned it to my pillow under some vellum paper.
I made the center ring (with my very first turning stitches =O )
My pillow fell while I was trying to make the petals.
I tried to catch it, but I grabbed bobbins instead and it got pulled completely and irreparably out of shape.
So, I tried something else.
Not as elaborate, but at least I got to finish it!
