Sampler : Lierse Kant

I'd like to make Lierse Kant (a kind of Tambour Lace) and started practice of basic stitches first of all.



I heard Lierse Kant is also called 'Lace from Lier', which is named after the Belgium city of Lier.
It's drawing of shaded objects with thicker and thinner lace thread on cotton tulle.
