Summer Challenge

One of the local guilds I belong to has given us a summer challenge, we are to do a project base on this quote. 


This was the push I needed to make some flowers that  I have wanted to make since I took a class at Shuttlebirds in 2018.  My first flower is from Mary Konior "Tatting with Visual Patterns" pgs 66 and 67.  You create a circle of petals and assemble. I added a bead and then wound the petals around.  I had two threads so I just tied them in a knot at the bottom.  I may add a calyx.

I was just using up some extra crochet cotton size 10 that was on a teaching Tatsy shuttle so this flower is large.  I lightly starched the cotton with white school glue and water .


  1. Very effective. I've seen the pattern but not tried it.

  2. Love it!!! I might have to make a few flowers.... and get busy and blog more.


It is always nice to see that someone has commented on my posts. Your comment will be published after verification. Happy Tatting
