flowery

centrino fiore by ninettacaruso

centrino fiore, a photo by ninettacaruso on Flickr.
I finished the doily "under construction", and that's the result. I thought it'd needed another round, but now I like it as it is. I've ironed it, not blocked, so there're some long picots still twisted, not so bad anyway. Thread is DMC 80, in red and grey, and pattern is mainly SRs of 3-3/3-3. Flowers are SRs in the center, and simple rings create the flowery illusion. Here is another photo taken before attaching them to the center daisy:
Ho finito il centrino "in costruzione" e questo è il risultato. Pensavo che servisse un'altro giro, ma adesso mi piace così com'è. L'ho stirato, non bloccato con gli spilli, quindi qualche picot non è ben steso, non male, dopotutto. Il filo è il solito DMC n.80, in rosso e grigio, lo schema è principalmente fatto con tutti split ring con pippiolini separati da 3 nodi ciascuno. I fiorellini sono split ring al centro e semplici anelli creano l'illusione floreale. La seconda foto l'ho scattata prima di attaccare tutti i fiorellini alla margherita centrale.

Ciao,
Ninetta

  4. Gorgeous doily! The red is a nice pop of color. The long picots look a bit like Teneriffe lace.
