Romanian Point Lace Candle

I made a Romanian Point Lace candle ornament for the WMLG's Christmas exchange. The meeting in December got cancelled due to the weather, so we had the exchange yesterday.

First, I drew out a pattern
Basting the cording down to the pattern

Ready for joining the ends and parts that overlap or touch.

Ready to start the needle-lace fillings

(I changed the bars between my loops on the candle as it didn't work the way I'd drawn it)

Removed from the pattern

I hung it on our tree for effect

I put it in this gift card holder for the exchange. It fit perfectly in the dent meant for the gift card.
