Rosa Bianco : Aemilia Ars

Finished an Aemilia Ars rose.

* Rosa *
Anchor Mercer Crochet #80

A short trip to Aemilia Ars and Punto Antico started from I got interested in 'Punto in Aria (stitch in air)' which is classic Italian needle lace, and I was really into them.
There are many things I'd like to make, and I wish continue :)

Italian Needlework : Punto Antico

I have stitched a little piece of Italian needlework called 'Punto Antico'.

* Biscornu -Puntaspilli *
Zweigart Edinburgh 36ct.
DMC cotton pearl #8, #12
Biscornu -Puntaspilli

I could not find 38ct fabric, so I used 36ct one.
This pattern has drawn thread work, button hole, bullion and hem stitches etc. and it's so much fun.
The text was very detailed and guided me safely to my first Punto Antico.

Dear erba, thank you for sharing the wonderful pattern!

The Enclosed Garden : Tatting Lace

I'm making a little larger tatted flower.

It took me a time to adjust numbers of stitches.
I'll start leaves and a calix next and am thinking what thread is nice for them.

Aemilia's Flower : Aemilia Ars

I've done an Aemilia Ars little flower started some days ago.

* Aemilia's Flower *
Daruma lace thread #80
Dispensa Fiore
(The pattern seems to be deleted from the website now. 31 July 2015.)

Although an unfamiliar technique and thin thread troubled me, somehow I finally finished it.
But I made some mistakes early in the process...
The AemiliArs books and DVDs motated me and I'd like to make another flower with them.
