Last week of July CAL.

This week is the easy one. The doily is almost finished and it looks nice.

All we have to do now is to stiff the project with some starch, to take it out from the cloth, pull out all the threads and do the pictures. I`ll do the pictures for sure because it will be a gift and is my first project on Rav .

If you are not in schedule at the end of the week, don`t worry, I wait you and of course, we have plenty of time.

Good night ladies

CAL- second week programme for July daffodil square doily- RPL

First week done.
Pattern transfered, cord made, cord basted.

Looks nice, I found thread in traditional colour -cream and first I thought that is a little bit too fine and of course I bought the next one in terms of size. I did a sample and was not good as I expected – too coarse. I prefer fine lace for this one .

Mine look like this :

Wide cord basted :

1 flower to go:

 narrow cord and wide cord basted on july free doilly pattern

and then, if you are in schedule, in the end:

free july doily patter  basted with narrow and wide cord

Of course any variation of colour or type of cord is welcomed.

Now you can send pictures if you want to share with us the project progress.

– secure flowers and leaves between them

– do the rings

– start the bars

More details soon.

If you are not in schedule at the end of the week, don`t worry, there are other 2 weeks to go and plenty of time.

Good night ladies

Romanian Point Lace- how to measure the lenght of cord

I like to measure the length of cord to use on small projects because I feel like moving faster to the end.

When I do short lengths of cord, I stitch them down on to the project and at the end of the day I can see something done.

Anyway ,I remember that mom use to have a bag with different types of meters and meters of cord rolled on match boxes (don`t n know why ) all with some matches left in. The evenings , at TV, with mom crocheting cord , always had a sound of rattling snakes  of the matches in the box. Then, when a big ball of cord was used for a project, me and my brother bet the number of the matches in the box and the color of the ends. 30 years ago, no computer, I-pads, x-force and still it was easy to play with almost nothing.

I already told you the  story from yesterday so, let`s measure the cord:

All that you have to do is to run a stitch around a motif and after, to take out the thread careful, in one piece,letting aprox. 1-2  cm reserve and using it like a measure.

For edge, in this case I did only a half (36 cm)and then I`ll do one piece of wide cord of double length of thread.

For flowers,in my example,  I did one (aprox. 60 cm )and after I`ll do four piece of  narrow cord of same length.

Of course, if you prefer, is ok to measure how much cord you need in total(2.40 of narrow cord and 72 cm of wide cord -add reserve of1 or 2 cmtrs) , do the entire length and then cut and close neat what ever length  you need.

For big projects with same type of cord all over,  just do some kilometers of cord  :)) and happy croche-stitching after. Only be careful to use same batch of thread if possible, because, believe me, even the small differences will be visible and drive you crazy.

Or may be is just me !!? Later I will tell you how to solve this  colour difference issue.

Good night ladies

Free pattern Romanian Point Lace square doily-CAL

Finally I am pleased with my final pattern for the doily that I designed last week. I put all project instead of a quarter because is much more easy for the begginers.

daffodil FP1

Now you can transfer the pattern to a piece of cloth as I explained here and check for some thread to do the cord.

Is in PDF format and it will be also published for free on Ravelry where is a very enthusiast  group for Romanian Point Lace with many projects and tutorials .

Thread used is 100% cotton, cream or off-white colour but again you can use what you have.

I use this one in panna colour  .

This is just what I found first , as you are placed all over the world, any of your local suppliers will have something close enough . Thread is about 1 mm in diameter and I use a number 1 crochet.

This is easy and nice for all beginners and advanced crocheters . We can work along this project and I will share different types of cord and fillings.

Just let me a note that you participate at CAL-  and after send me photos with work in progress. This week I wait for all to prepare and then we start from first of july.

Any questions welcomed.
