Valentine heart -Romanian point lace

Valentine Day  is not a romanian tradition but we have a very similar one on 24 February named Dragobete. The story about this tradition in my country will follow soon.

I was thinking what to do this year to celebrate the moment and of course what can be better than a heart ? A pillow with a heart ūüôā

Romanian point lace heart in the middle of a decorative pillow is something that you can give to someone loved, appreciated or respected, for Valentine day, Mother day, 1 year day or …. anytime. Even on a T-shirt look nice. I will take a photo soon.

My dear husband liked a lot the drawing so for him is enough. My mother suggested to put the heart on a frame  ??!! What a good idea.

This is the first photo made after I did the pattern

heart 13-2

 

Final result

heart 13-1

I am happy with the result. More details to come.

square doily in Romanian Point Lace

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

Romanian Point Lace-simple RPL narrow cord

This type of cord is simple to do and can be used for most of the Romanian Point Lace models where the narrow cord is required. Is approx.  3-4 mm wide , very good to use for  small projects or flowers and leaves in the interior of RPL models. For edges is most recommended a wider cord to increase the contrast and beauty.

This is a vintage piece realized with narrow cord . OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

 

Try to crochet the cord  a bit loose because like this is more easy to stitch the embroidery  after the cord is basted on the pattern.

Basic pattern is :

Abbreviations: sc- simple chain, TL- turn left

Chain 2 loosely, 1 sc in ch1, TL , 1 sc in second chain ,* TL, 1 sc in second chain ,both loops* .

*1 sc in both loops formed lateral, TL *

repeat from * to *  to achieve desired length

The cord :

After basting narrow cord , before embroidery looks like this: narrow cord 2

You can crochet in front of TV or in a waiting room as many meters you want and use them after in different projects.

Bast the cord on the cloth transferred pattern and cut cord , one cm longer at the end . Clean the threads from the end using your nails and the cord will unravel till the desired length . The thread from the end can be used to join  the end with another cord according to the pattern.

The rest of the cord will be used in a new project.Next time , the beginning  of the cord ,cleaned of small threads will have 0.5 or 1cm of thread  that will be hidden when you start to do the embroidery .
