Halloween Butterfly : Romanian Point Lace

Halloween will come soon and I made a Romanian Point Lace butterfly motif.



* Romanian Point Lace Butterfly *
Materials
DMC Cebelia #40
Tools
Hook : 0.75mm (#10 JPN)
Size
About 10cm width
Pattern
'Piecework 2001 Jan/Feb' / Interweave



The original pattern was so large that I used thinner thread than the suggested and shrink the size.
This pattern has six types of filling stitches and I filled them one by one with excitement :)

Triangular Ornament : Romanian Point Lace

Speaking of needle stitches, I also like Romanian Point Lace's so I made a small ornament.



* Romanian Point Lace Ornament *
Materials
Olympus Emmy Grande
Tools
Hook : 1.75mm (#0 JPN)
Size
About 10cm
Pattern
'Romanian Point Lace Ornament (4")' by Manitoba


I substituted Emmy Grande for the suggested DMC Cebelia #10 with a rough guess.
It seems a little thicker so I reduced the petal filling stitches.



It was my Romanian point Lace after a long time and I enjoyed the experience very much :)
Manitoba, thank you for a great tutorial!

Irish Flowers : Clones Lace

I made accessories with Clones Lace flower motifs that I've been crocheted these days.



This is a wild rose obidome (Japanese kimono accessory),



and this is a clematis hairpin.

* Irish Flowers *
Materials
Anchor Mercer Crochet #80
Metal parts, beads
Tools
Hook : 0.50mm (#14 JPN)
Pattern
'Clones Lace'

Both petals consist of delicate net stitches and have similar mood :)
By the book, the Wild Rose is one of the most common motifs in the area, and the Clematis motif is designed by Máire Treanor.
