Crochet lace and needlework notebook with samples / cahier de dentelles & broderies
Softcover notebook with marbled wraps, 9 x 7 inches. 3 large "full page" crochet lace leaves, plus 8 smaller leaves and embellishments, including berries, grapes, a bell, pair of buttons and beautiful tassel. 2 linen panels show additional needlework skills including darning/mending, buttonholes, seams and decorative stitches/embroidery. Mounted with adhesive in strategic and incidentally pleasing compositions (particularly the small pieces). The notebook has a lopped-off bottom corner but is otherwise firm and sturdy. The examples occupy fewer than half its pages, which are otherwise blank--no writing anywhere in the book at all. A beautiful and understated little sewing book.
