Thank you so much for the nice comment on my work. I looked at your page and saw your work and the notes on Giuliana Buonpadres book nr 5. I just finished my version of the flower arrangement you can see on the front page of that book. I must get a picture taken and posted. I used a thread I puchased in Bruges (Belgium) earlier this year, very thin and with spectacular colourchanges.

Margaret: in regard to the names of laces.  I have said this before, that sometimes we have to use names in a way that not everyone agrees on.  If you do an internet image search on "reticella" or "reticello" you get photos of both geometric punto in aria and embroidered reticella.  The public is confused about what it is.  If we persist in using the names as one particular lace expert chooses, then the public will never find us. Because the name they are using for the search won't match what we have posted on the internet.  We have to use the names the way the public does.  Then, when they do a search on their misunderstood words, they will get a link to us.  Once they are here, we can explain the difference between geometric cutwork embroidery and geometric needle lace.  I have to think not only of terminological correctness, but of how to grab as many people as possible to find us and our contribution to the world.  I have to think about search engines.
