Motif #11 a tatted flower

I was just playing tonight when I should have been doing something constructive(hmmm...I think this is constructive :D )

This is actually part of an edging pattern. It's from The Tatter's Treasure Chest edited by Mary Carolyn Waldrep and it's listed under Lacy Enchantment No. 8880. The threads are green size 10, and a DMC cotton perle 5 no color name listed on it(it was like an embroidery thread). It was really different working with the colored thread since it's textured much different than the crochet cottons I have been using. I do like how it turned out considering I wasn't sure on some of the pattern. As for the colored part on the scan you can see a real strong separation of colors, but to my eye it's a soft blend and I didn't even realize the orange was that strong(it sure doesn't look it). I would have done more, but I needed to quit tonight since I wasn't doing what I should have been.
