From time to time I like to try out something new. For years I have wanted to learn how to do Romanian Point Lace. Of course I didn't know anyone who could teach me so it got put on the back burner. (Boy! that burner needs a bigger pot these days). Well I was looking through a Nordic Needle catalog and saw that they had a book for beginners. It is called Romanian Point Lace (A Course for Beginners) by Sylvia Murariu.
This book has some great beginner patterns. I am not good at learning technique's from a book so I searched online to see if anyone had posted a tutorial on making the cord required for the foundation of the lace. I found one by Sunshines Creations. http://www.flickr.com/photos/sunshinescreations/2653581610
Within 10 minutes I was making the cord! Now it takes yards of this cord to do a small pattern so I am busy working on it and hope to have something to show soon!
