Swallow and Music : Tatting Lace and İğne Oyası

I've just finished a needle book.

* Swallow and Music Needle Book*
Anchor Mercer Crochet #100
KAPLAN polyester : #50
Linen fabric, cotton fabric, quilt batting, thick paper
Button, ribbon, metal parts, beads

I thought this or that about it so it took more time than expected, but it was really a happy time :)
The stuck three needles are an embroidery needle for İğne Oyası, a sewing needle to hide thread tails of tatting, and a wool needle for crochet.
They are the ones I use most often.
I think I can make almost anything I make at ordinary times only with them.

There are four metal parts on the corners of a cover.

Il Nome della Rosa : İğne Oyası

The rose motif is my first incentive to learn İğne Oyası.
I've wanted to make this graceful and lovely motif all along.
This time I finished the first rose with Japanese embroidery thread.

Framboise Chocolat : İğne Oyası

I've added an İğne Oyası watermelon flower to a metal kanzashi (a sort of traditional hair ornaments in Japan).

And a fluffy net is made with "İğne Dantel" that is also Turkish traditional lace knotted with a sewing needle.

I'm playing with a needle and thread these days.
