One May Night - First Band

I'm very happy with this first band. It has the movement that I find so pleasing in a band sampler.

I wanted something that would bring a garden's architectural ironwork to mind and found this image in an old Edwardian era filet crochet book printed in 1912. It was a book that itself took older motifs and as it says in its title, represented them in a new way, and now I'm representing it in yet another new way :)

While the book is rather difficult to find, thankfully, it is among the free scans of old needlework books online at the Antique Pattern Library
