So, I don't know what kind of magical abilities the docent at Tryon had...but I cannot recreate this trim to save my life! I'm going to keep trying...sooner or later....but I'm afraid I'll have to put aside the loom and work on other, less frustrating, endeavors. BOO! I was SO hoping for something fun to trim this dress with!

So, I don't know how practical this is, but....

I was recently on vacation in Atlantic Beach, NC and visited Tryon Palace in New Burn - a lovely 18th Century Governor's palace that my mom tells me is akin to the Governor's Palace in Williamsburg (which I will someday visit - it's about 3 hours away). While I was there, one of the docents taught me how to make rococo trim somewhat similar to the trim here:

I haven't gotten a chance to pull out my lap loom and try it out, but I'm hoping to very soon! If anyone's interested, I can try to put together a tutorial of some sort.
