This book has been reviewed on the lace gumnuts website
Not to be confused with Cluny de Brioude by Mick Fouriscot and Odette Arpin, published a few years earlier, which is mainly mats and edges.
This new book is a treasure trove of motifs, jewellery and a few small mats. The diagrams in the introduction are large and clear, so are the working diagrams for each item.
With Christmas just around the corner, I would recommend every Gumnut puts this at the top of their wish list for a Christmas present. It inspires even me (who does not get on very well with leaves, they don’t like me) to try something from this book – trouble is, which pattern!
I'm the lace bee and these are my books
With currently over 300 books and about the same number of individual patterns, I have an enviable library. So here are some of my books.
