      > Geraldine Stott Visual Introduction to Bucks Point Lace, a book. I've only had a class on Torchon, and I taught myself Bucks Point from this book. My goal is to be able to work floral Bucks without a working diagram, and to create new floral Bucks patterns. I am not there yet, but I am steadily working from the book. It's progressive, but moves at a pretty good pace. There are two of these books at $70 on Amazon right now, which I think is a reasonable price.

Although I totally hacked through a pattern join on my current project yesterday. It's going to look awful, but it's still delicate and pretty, and hey! Handmade!

I only took a beginner Torchon class over a year ago and I love to see how people actually use the lace in real life. Your work is beautiful! Is this Visual intro a DVD?
