Therese de Dillmont authored many books on needlework. I recently learned that her Encyclopedia of Needlework, published in 1886, is available in digitized format. Among the types of needlework, she includes a section on netting, which includes the following:
- Netting (page 395)
- Implements and Materials (page 395; illustrations 611-613)
- Stitches (page 397; illustrations 614-116)
- Patterns Produced in Netting (page 400; illustrations 617-633)
- Embroidered Netting (page 410; illustrations 634-691)
I've been promising to post the photos of the sun catchers I net during the last two weeks of September. So here they are. There are some 4", 5", and 6" ones. If you want to see all the sun catchers I have designed, click here.
