Little Window : Puncetto

Puncetto Valsesiano, a kind of needle lace that makes delicate geometric patterns.
I found a wonderful work of it on Twitter and got itching to start a project :)

* Little Window Scissor Keeper *
DMC Cordonnet Special #60
Wire #30
Swarovski beads
'Puncetto Lace Necklace to Make' on Piecework 2015 May/June

The size is a little less than 2cm square.
I put beads on it and made it a scissor keeper.

Starlight : Paška čipka

I had got interested in Croatian needlelace ”Pag Lace (Paška čipka)”, and made a mini motif.

* Starlight *
Egyptian Cotton #100/3
Wire #30
About 3.5cm

Its techniques are similar to geometlic Aemilia Ars, but also have original beautiful stitches.
Picots made of thread loops like Tatting Lace, flat triangles like Mekik Oya, and stitches like a ladder...
I learned some new things and enjoyed them :)
