I recently picked up a second hand book about white work embroidery, and decided to have a bash at it!  Looking at the pics in the book I decided Carrickmacross Lace looked easy enough - you applique muslin on to netting, couch it down, and then cut away the muslin that isn't part of the design.  So I doodled a design of some birds holding a key, and over the weekend I made this:



It's on a blue background to show off the white work.  I'm rather pleased with it as a first attempt!  I also used little buttonhole eyelets in the design, they were fun to embroider.

That's really pretty!  I'd like to try it sometime.  It would be good incentive to get my backside finishing techniques up to par, too.  I couldn't just slap a cover on the back.   Wink

Thank you all!  It was surprisingly easy - if you can couch you can do this, I reckon!
