Hi Ombretta, thank you so very much for your response, it has clarified the technique wonderfully. Not much being achieved in our household/garden, where I definitely should be working, as my head is full of Burano!! Lace probably has this effect on many of us.x

Teri,

Teri,
Nous sommes maintenant quelque unes à avoir en main le livre de Ombretta. Tenez-nous au courant de votre expérience avec le "sacola" (or twisted buttonhole stitch), ce point tellement important et pas facile. Des heures de plaisir!
Now, some of us have on hand the book of Ombretta. Keep us informed about your experience with the "sacola" (or twisted buttonhole stitch) it's a so important stitch and difficult issue. Hours of fun!

Another question, - after looking at your blog, and drooling over your beautiful lace -

What is the silk thread you use?

do you use various thicknesses in each piece, ore one thickness for the whole of the piece?

Do you do all your lace in the twisted stitch? - or most of it?

Your work is so beautifully even. I wish I could get mine looking like that!

I think I "discovered" needlelace at too late an age. If I had been young when I started, then I might have had the patience to practice more carefully at the beginning!!

Please keep showing us your work. it gives us inspiration.

Hi Ombretta, thank you. I would like to order a copy of the first book from you please. Could you please send me an Email message via this site on how to order/pay please. I will use google to translate the Italian text and hopefully your diagrams will guide me too. I'm excited!

Thank you for the link and information on the threads. Is the technique for working "gnochetti" stitch detailed in your book? I am looking ahead to Christmas and wonder where I can purchase a copy of your book with the technique detailed. Is the book available directly from you and if so what the price is? Thank you again Ombretta.

In books, Alençon and Burano are often associate too. What do you think?

Ombretta

Thanks for the explanation of Venetian and Burano. Does it make sense to include them in the same group?

Hi Ombretta!

I'm not sure what you mean by the bissoni technique... could you give me a link to a picture?  (I was just exploring your photo stream... what beautiful work you do!)

Ahh, the penny dropped.  Now I know how you got such even stitches.  I will have to try that on my next piece.

Thank you. I am away on holiday with just a small download for emails, so will check it all out when I get home in the New Year.  Have a great Festive Season, and best wishes, - and lots of lovely lace!! - in 2014!!!

I am honored Ombretta that you accepted my request.. you are such a talented lace maker ..

I like the variety of stitches, in the mat, too.  the twisted stitch with filled squares here and there - looks like 5 twisted stitches then a treble block, repeated. Very Interesting.

I am always looking for different stitches, as I get tired of using the same ones all the time! I hope you will let me copy some of your stitches - please.

Also the tree trunks, - are the 2 rows of corded Brussels, and then 2 rows of whipped twisted stitch, repeated?   It is a very nice, firm but light stitch for filling larger areas.

Gosh! the trees are much larger than I expected - 24 cm is quite large.

They are lovely, and so beautifully worked, as are the 2 wall panels you show here.  Lovely, Lovely work.

Congratulations, and thank you for sharing them with us all.
