Romanian point lace
I've got an interesting tip from a fellow blogger about the mysterious macramé crochet I was showing you a few posts earlier; actually it is very well known in Romania and is called Romanian point lace.
You can find every information about this technique here and many tutorials how to make the cord here
thanks for the tip Ana :^)
the droplet above is the only thing I've ever made in this technique so far, but there are also parts of the embroidery below that are very similar to Romanian point lace, such as the padding of the black leaf and the figure in the bottom center; both are examples of a crocheted border that is filled with needle lace,
