On the road to find out

This alternating leaf lace broke my heart at first.  I just loved its clarity and subtlety, but the 3 extra stitches in the repeat created havoc in the texture when I attempted to revise the count to avoid them.  Why this happened I could not say.  After several days of failed swatching I thought about giving up and changing to another pattern.  But I persisted. 

And hooray!  I made it work!

For my new piece I'll be applying this lace to the bodice styling of Agnes sort of.  Nelly will have a slimmer hip-line, no waist rib, be slightly shorter in length, and...  well, I just let each design lead me to the next.  And I just love this lace.  Can't wait!
