Well, I just had to try my other thought. It's ok.
It gives a nice ruffly effect for someone who might like that.
This one is tatted in size 40 Lizbeth Niagara Falls with blue bugle beads.
And here is the progression of this pattern.
First the Rainbow Splash version:simple.
Then the Black version:elegant.
Then the Niagara Falls version:ruffle lace.
Well...got to get busy with things that HAVE to get done!!
Have a fabulous tatting day!!! :)
