Step 2 Done

I'm working on "Pretty Petal Doily" from A Tatter's Treasure Chest for entry in the Farm Show in August.  Finishing the center was step 1.  Completing the 8 individual petals was step 2. The pattern calls for one more round of rings and chains on each petal to attach them all together - that will be step 3.

The thread is size 20 Lizbeth, colors 620 and 131.

Mother's Day

Happy Mom's Day, friends!  As a tribute to my mom, I'm posting a picture of some of her tatting.  She made miles and miles of hen & chicks edging for pillow cases over the years.  These butterflies (tatted by my mom) are from a pattern that came from my paternal grandmother's sample book.
