Another Ben Flikkert's Motif

I hope it works when adding the final edge or this doily, for the reason of making the stitches a bit loose.

As you can see here on center round of motif  "D"

I have only done two out of 12 done of motif "C" but I could not stand wondering what it would look like, I began this one.  Fox and UMI have so much more done and I just wanted to see for myself so I jumped ahead :)

I will improve on the mignonette work but will still use this one.  

I am trying to capture the color in this picture. The one that looks white is really a pale lavender.

    1. For once I can do you a favor, beware on the sides there are three picots in between and at the ends there are 2 picots in between leaving three mignonettes rings attached on the ends and two on the sides, hopefully that make sense :)

    1. Thanks I think he reflects Anne Orr with his tatting don't you think?

    2. I do, I thought that when I first saw it but I've never tatted one of his patterns nor I've ever seen one before. How old are these patterns?

    3. Oh he lives in the Netherlands and this book is 1997 (first addition) so he came along much later than Anne.

  15. the mignonettes have a stretch to them and can slide, so there is adjustment that can be made.
