Starting using false picots - Leader, J. Intro to Bucks Point Lace, p. 36
Flowers based on Stott, Visual Introduction to Bucks Point Lace, p. 30 (Rosemary)
Used finer thread for 3rd working - nicer for ground, but needed to add in threads for flowers. See pattern from Jean Leader's website. This worked well for the 4th when I added 2 pairs to each flower.
Path of gimps in little circles: always right over left.
Lower of 2 goes over top then down side and out at bottom of 2.
Upper of 2 goes down side then across bottom and out as upper of 2.
