More Romanian Point Lace

I can’t seem to get enough of this.  Got a couple of books from my lace guild’s library and continue to see projects that inspire me.  This simple flower is from Thompson & Waller’s book Romanian Point Lace.  (I would love to have my own copy of this book!)  I wanted to play with using a little finer thread for the fillings and color.  The cord was crocheted with size 10 cotton, the pink fillings are size 50 Altin Basaak (sp?) and the green is size 20 crochet cotton.

I think this would be really sweet on a little girl’s dress.
