Sunflower Practice

Well have  I got a story for you ...I ran out help! Lace Lovin Librarian was so kind and sent little samples of thread out, and I judged wrong!   I don't know where you all are buying this perfect quilter thread from :)
I was trying another pattern from the book posted earlier, called "Frivolite" and even with translation I didn't understand the directions, so the translation was not working figured it out mostly.  Didn't like the center thought it was too big for all the delicate work so I just cut it out and put this center in (which I will change for a better one later) instead.
I also was concentrating on the little green rings I forgot to attach them to the yellow petals.
Love this thread it really is easy to over tat with. The  pattern I will do this again, I have seen it in other places besides this book.

  3. I have the book in English. I always forget what pretty doily patterns are in it. I've never made that pattern, but seeing it in actual sunflower colors is very inspiring.

    1. Thank you it is hard to visualize color and I had to stare at it a while before I realized it could be a sun flower then translated it and found out it was! I want to make 4 of them and put them together one measures 5 inches across or 15cm at size 80 thread. I feel this would look good in size 20 too!
