As previously mentioned I've just exhibited a series of needlelace panels depicting cell change in diabetes. In total there are six circular pieces mounted in an old gramophone record album. Each is worked in a lovely crimson silk from Gloriana.
It was clear from the start that I wouldn't be making a traditional piece of lace so I decided on anarchy as my main technique ! Loose tension in the backround,completely floating cordonnets,some things which don't have names and lots of picots. Each piece took about 7-8 hours from couching through to releasing from the pad.
