family lace

I don't recall having posted this drawing. If I did, sorry for the repetition. In addition to the Venetian lace I was drawing at Ca' Mocenigo, I borrowed some old lace from a member of our family. This belonged to a great grandmother, and possibly goes back to even a previous generation. The lace border had been trimmed off some article of clothing. I did not notice until I began drawing that the roundels were designs of 4, 5, and 6 parts. Drawing makes you notice things more.
