IMG_20140403_120412568This is the corner detail of my Ebenezer Lace project. It is an original design, in size 40 thread. I worked the border blossoms with the roll stitch across the center of each blossom, and clones knots sprinkled throughout like baby’s breath.

The roll stitch is famous in my husband’s family because his grandmother Lillie Lang Robison used it extensively in her original lace designs that were passed to her posterity.

The clones knots are to honor my grandma Celinda Jane Olson’s Irish heritage. She was the first lacemaker I knew in my line.

These heavier stitches and knots also serve to weigh the border down a bit as the lace hangs over the altar.  The thread weight is so light, I didn’t want it to curl.
