I am a huge fan of Anne Van Damme's designs - I don't know of anyone else who can express lace in cross stitch and back stitch as well as her. This hardback book in excellent condition has over 17 terrific charts
Here are just a few of the examples taken at random. However, the sampler of laces has to be seen to be believed - yes, it is nothing more than cross and back stitches!
This sampler is not the only non-white sampler in the book - but it is an excellent and fun to work design.
These are design classics and stand up to the test of time.
How lovely are these lace patterns?
And with full repertoires of alphabets there are lots of opportunities for you to personalise the designs for weddings, anniversaries, births and other festive occasions.
