ROMANZI SU RICAMO & CO (NEEDLEWORK FICTION BOOKS)

Care amiche, come tutte voi adoro leggere e sto cercando di fare una bibliografia di romanzi (rosa, gialli, noir, fantasy o altro) che abbiano, sullo sfondo della trama, ricamo, maglia, uncinetto, cucito in modo importante. Sono quelli che nei Paesi anglosassoni chiamano i Needlework Fiction Books. Questa pagina sarà sempre in aggiornamento e, a mano a mano che leggerò i libri, verranno aggiunti i link con le recensioni.
Mi aiutate a costruirla?

Punto croce: a quanti fili si ricama?

Ciao ragazze, oggi parliamo di filati e cerchiamo di rispondere a una domanda piuttosto frequente: quanti fili dobbiamo usare per le nostre amate crocette? Parliamo ovviamente del filato più comune, ovvero delle matassine di cotone mouliné che, solitamente, sono vendute in unità di 8 metri a 6 capi. Proviamo a fare chiarezza.

Molti disegnatori hanno ormai l’abitudine di aggiungere una legenda ai loro schemi con indicato le dimensioni del ricamo sui vari tipi di tela, la quantità di matassine per colore e, appunto, il numero dei capi da usare. Ma non sempre siamo così fortunate. Allora, come facciamo?
Posto che dipende dal tipo di tela che usiamo e dall’effetto di copertura che vogliamo ottenere, per il punto croce non è un aspetto secondario, la nostra scelta fa una grande differenza!
Generalmente: 1 capo dona poca copertura e può essere usato per i dettagli meno pieni come il cielo sullo sfondo;2 capi donano una migliore copertura, è la quantità usata più spesso nella maggior parte…

Tele da ricamo: aida e count

Torniamo alla nostra rubrica sulle tele da ricamo. La volta scorsa abbiamo parlato della composizione delle varie declinazioni della tela aida. Oggi torniamo sull'aida ma cerchiamo di imparare le sue misure: cosa sono i count, come si calcolano, come si calcola la dimensione di uno schema, quanti fili dobbiamo usare. Procediamo con ordine. Le misure Quando andiamo in negozio a comprare la tela aida, ci viene chiesto a quanti count, a quanti fori o a quanti quadretti la vogliamo. Noi italiani parliamo di quadretti, nei paesi anglosassoni usano i count che non corrispondono, eh? Attenzione: una tela 20 count non significa che ha 20 quadretti in 10 cm. Vediamo di essere più chiari. Cosa sono i count I paesi anglosassoni hanno, come unità di misura, il pollice (inch) che corrisponde a 2,54 cm (arrotondiamo a 2,5). Con count, si intende il numero di quadretti di tela che ci stanno in un pollice (quindi in 2,5 cm). É un po' complicato per noi che non siamo abituati a questa unità d…

Hello Winter! Per un inverno a punto croce

Lo so, lo so, è quasi primavera e io ricamo l'inverno! Dovrei pensare a fiori e pulcini e invece ancora alle prese con i pupazzi di neve di Durene Jones! Sono una lumachina in questo periodo, quindi abbiate pazienza, ora vi faccio vedere cosa ho fatto con questo schema.

Schema che, come tanti che ho fatto di Durene Jones, è un free che ha pubblicato sulla sua pagina Facebook. Se vi ricordate avevo fatto l'autunno che mi era piaciuto un sacco!
Di questo però non sono così soddisfatta: vista la grandezza dello schema, volendo fare un cuscinetto, ho scelto un'aida 80 (20 count) color ghiaccio e beh, lo vedete, troppo piccola per tutti quei particolari a punto scritto, i pupazzi non sono venuti perfetti. Faccio sempre lo stesso errore, accidenti.
Comunque, visto che ancora per una settimana siamo in inverno, l'ho esposto nella mia stanzetta.

Credo che a breve Durene pubblichi anche la primavera, questa volta sceglierò un'altra tela! Hello Winter, schema free di Durene…

Anthea SAL di Faby Reilly: tappa 2!

Prosegue l'Anthea SAL con Faby Reilly, terminato febbraio! Anche qui ho imparato nuovi punti, peccato che le roselline verdi le abbia fatte a rovescio, ma sono venute belle ugualmente.

Ho sempre dei problemi a capire le spiegazioni, ma ho anche problemi a distinguere la mano sinistra dalla destra quindi non mi stupisco :)))

Mi ero accorta di aver fatto la rosellina a rovescio ma, visto che non era così male, invece di disfare le ho fatte tutte uguali, pazienza, imparerò a farle corrette nei prossimi mesi.

Causa isolamento per il corona virus mi sa che mi rimetterò in pari, ricamo, leggo, e lavoro a giorni alterni. Spero tanto che tutto questo serva e finisca presto!

Da Durene Jones, un cuore pieno di rose!

Ricordate il mio primo cuore? Ebbene, ci ho riprovato, questa volta con uno schema di Durene Jones. Certo, San Valentino è passato, ma per cuori e amore c'è sempre tempo, soprattutto in questo periodo!


Lo sapete che adoro Durene Jones, perchè non si ripete mai! Questo è uno dei cuori che sono pubblicati nel suo libro Floral Summer Design, di qualche anno fa.
Ho rivestito una forma di polistirolo, sempre con tanta fatica, non so, a voi vengono semplici? Io sudo sette camicie per far entrare la stoffa nelle fessure, conoscete qualche trucco?
Comunque, vi faccio vedere anche il retro, con una romantica stoffina Tilda

Che ne dite? A me non dispiace, ma non è perfetto, ha qualche piega.
