With these beautiful patterns by an award-winning lacemaker, it's as easy as ABC to stitch any monogram in exquisitely-hued bobbin lace. In addition to the 50 color photos of all the finished pieces, detailed line diagrams accompany the instructions for each lovely letter in Sandi Woods's "Leafy Glades" alphabet. Plus, every letter has not just one but two templates: one uses simple stitches, and the other more complicated Milanese braids. For those who want to take their needlework further, there are 24 additional abstract designs that take the original letter patterns and then manipulate them into wonderful, sinuous shapes.
