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.
