24 Hearts in Bobbin Lace by Lene Bjorn
Irmgard Schneider's bestseller with lace motifs from nature has been republished in January 2009. In the book there is a great variety of 36 bobbin-made pictures of herbs and flowers.
The fifth booklet in the series Cahiers de la Dentellière. This time it is single lace letters of the alphabet in eternelle-technique; generally they are worked with just 4 pairs of bobbins.
Mostly the patterns in this book are for Christmas stars; a few hearts and bells are included as well.
Rosemary Shepherd has spent decades deciphering the techniques used in early bobbin lace. On the basis of about 30 examples, the author explains how the old lace was reconstructed and the techniques which are necessary to make it.
