  3. Thanks Diane & Margaret :-) I kept this one simple in order to see how these colours work together

  4. Fantastic Tatting, love your work. I did this one using two shuttles switching for the clovers on the last round.

    I will have to go back to your Craftree album, Bernice, for another look. You did real great in completing all 24 in one go!
