Grapevine Doily : Aemilia Ars

I have finished a mini doily with a grapevine motif.

* Grapevine Doily *
DMC Cordonnet Special #60
Cosmo linen fabric
L'uva from 'Quaderni di Aemilia Ars. Frutti classici'

It's my first combimation of Aemilia Ars lace and fabric.

The suggested thread is #60 and the stitches became soft.

I'd like to have a lacy leaf and made filling stitches (Punto Chiaro) looser, but if more stiffness is needed it seems also good to make them tighter.
In spite of a little work, it's a great pattern full of Aemilia Ars techniques.

Candle Lights : Tatting Lace

I am making various sizes of 3D tatted marigolds bit by bit.

From the left, 15, 17, 19, 21, and 23mm in diameter.
Now I'm planning to tat more, dye the flowers the color of the sun, and make accessories of them :)
