Roses in Bloom

I found this pattern (the part at the front of the necklace) in a vintage tatting book. I thought the edging looked like flowers so I had in my mind how I wanted to use Yarnplayer's "Roses" thread and make it really look like flowers - unfortunately, the pattern wouldn't cooperate and I ended up doing it in two layers instead of just one like the pattern was written. So then I stopped it short and created the rest of the necklace afterwards. I still like the way it turned out, but I have some more ideas.


I need to tweak the pattern a little more to get better results. Unfortunately I have the flu and can't think straight, so I'm going back to sleep now.

Thanks for all the well wishes - I do feel better today.

This thread is GORGEOUS so I understand the thread envy, LOL. Today I want to play with one I got from Lady Shuttlemaker - "Peach Pandorea" - so maybe I'll post that one later this week.

Size 20 is definitely my favorite for jewelry.
