This challenge piece is kinda small, but unique.
You will see that I didn't master the technique, but tried hard!
This is the Flower with "spiral knot" stitch by Jennifer Williams
I love the ruffly looking chains(petals), and the 3-d looking center.
This is tatted in size 20 Lizbeth Western Sunset.
Here is a view from the side to show how the center "pops" up.
And I made a little more progress on the test tatting of the cross.
Just one square on top, another on the bottom and two side corners near the top
and I will be finished(although, it will need blocking!!!).
Our daughter is doing better, and will be heading back to college tomorrow.
We decided it was best to have another day to make sure we didn't have
any problems and that she could make it through a whole day up
Have a wonderful day and hopefully some tatting time too!!! :)
