A Bevy of Projects

I was looking at my Yusai Fukuyama book, 100 New Bobbin Lace Patterns, the other night and 4 patterns caught my eye that were in the Bedfordshire style and would give me practice in the elements of that style of lace. 
The first one, done here in yellow linen thread shows a very typical nine-pin edging went very quickly indeed. I just need to tie it off but I'm too tired right now. 

The next one will be the second smaller round pricking that has the center star and the intersecting fans. 

The smaller oval will be third, with the typical running leaf and plait section. 

Finally will be the larger oval with the running tape and fillers. That is not only larger but it has some more fiddly bits with sewing and tape overlaps. 

I really just want to make everything in this book. I've already done 4-5 pieces including my Mom's birds and flowers and Jane's Victorian lady.
