High Sheriff of Cumbria

Congratulations to Diana Matthews who is now High Sheriff of Cumbria. Her entire outfit has been bespoke made by five art makers , most of whom are members of the Art Workers Guild. This is my contribution !
The image above is the lace jabot before attaching it to the collar ,below.

The cuff(s) are too shown flat ....

 ...and then made up onto organdy half-sleeves.

'just a detail of how the cuffs fasten at the back...

It's all in the details

Yes, I appear to be finished after three months of lace making ! These are some high res. photos so you that you can see why I use a magnifying lens to work !
Firstly the eye, now with eyelid and question mark. The string of the bow is drawn threw the 'dot' .

The moth has all its' wings and a furry body,

the roses have all their leaves, the cuffs have their gabled edges.
When this has been officially handed over then I will post the complete images.
