Make, learn and talk about needle lace.
Let's talk about my first class. It was MTTF AM.
A120 Romanian Point (Sylvia Murariu)
Peaceful Dove design. A dove draws a smile whenever we see one, for it is a
symbol of hope, peace and love. The Romanian Point Lace dove was created to
stimulate these positive feelings. It makes a wonderful ornament, to hang in the
window or on a tree. It can also be used as an elegant embellishment for a fancy
dress or jacket. Design size 8 and 3/4 by 5 and 1/2 inches.
Sylvia was wonderful! The class was in her suite but there were only 4 of us in class. We sat around a beautiful round table. I just fell in love with making this lace. (don't worry, I still love Pag lace too). When I was couching the thread on the material, I was in heaven. There is nothing so soothing as working with a needle and thread. My dove is not complete. I did lots and lots of homework with this class. I wanted to make sure that I kept up with Sylvia. So I did a lot of couching before and after class, at some of the functions too. If you ever get a chance to take a class with Sylvia, I highly recommend it because she really gets what it is like as a student. She had tons of samples to show us the stitches and it was with yarn in different colors so you could really see what was going on. I must admit, I did visit her in the vendor room and stocked up on kits for when I came home. I will post pictures as soon as I can.
