The fifth booklet in the series Cahiers de la Dentellière. This time it is single lace letters of the alphabet in eternelle-technique; generally they are worked with just 4 pairs of bobbins. The designs are elegantly curved, decorative and easy to work; sometimes tally flowers are scattered decoratively around the letters. Many coloured illustrations with examples of how to use the letters, lace prickings with pin holes on an extra pattern sheet.

The same designs are then used by the authoress as patterns for “traditional embroidery” (chain stitch, French knots and lazy daisy stitch) and for silk ribbon embroidery. Patterns are provided on an extra sheet.

The designs for the letters were published some years ago in a simpler form under the title: Lettres en Eternelles.
