All Finished

Well, I said I'd get bored. The nice thing about this pattern is that it finishes in lots of places. I decided 4 flowers was enough, so I put a final border of rings and chains around it and called it done.

The Garden is Growing!

This will be the last picture from my scanner; as you can see, it barely fits. The next updated photo will have to come from the camera.

Flower Garden Progress

I figured it out! Here is what I have so far - two flowers in the garden. I think there will be a total of 7, one in the middle and 6 around. I'm using size 30 thread.

Flower Garden

I've been trying to figure out a way to reproduce the classic "Grandmother's Flower Garden" quilt pattern with tatting, and I think I've got it. This medallion pattern is from A Tatter's Workbook. If I use little white motifs as the path between different colored flowers made like this one, it should work. I don't know how big it will get; knowing myself, probably not very large (I tend to get distracted by other projects). The good thing is that I can stop in lots of places and have a doily/table mat of any size.
