Fujito Flower Finished

#74-100 Motif Challenge

This went much faster than expected and was not as difficult as I had originally anticipated.

Perhaps I have grown into the book by Taiko Fujito; last year I found it frustrating, OR this pattern is not hard!

The Lizbeth #40 came  that came from Crazy Mom is lovely to work with. It has become regular thread. Thanks CM!

I just noticed how the variegated thread played out in the last chain!  Long repeats I see, which kind of works in this case - just.  I think I imagined the edge with the colour changes occurring more often.

What to tat next? I have no idea.

  1. The flower looks lovely! The thread is very pretty, and I do love that book. I guess I'll have to look through it again just to see what attracts my interest.

    The more I see of what everyone is trying out, the more eager I am for retirement. Just think of how much fun I could have with inspiration from all my tatting buddies!

  2. Diane, you are sweet! Ah, yes. One needs time to tat - that is for sure, or a lot of insomnia!

  5. I like what the brown does to this motif. It makes it so interesting and it looks so different from Tatting Fool's.

  8. Fantastic Fox! I love how the colours on the final round seem to mirror each other, as do those flowers. Very nice pattern.

  12. Okay, Thank you! That was a book I was planning on getting eventually. I love seeing things out of books that I can't see the insides of.

  15. Oh my, Fox... this one is gorgeous! I've had this book for the longest time but often hesitated because I imagined the tatting will be difficult. Thanks for giving the inspiration to check it out again. How about another motif from this book? I love those flora and leaves patterns at the end, pretty cool!

  17. Beautiful piece!

    Pink & brown together are lovely.

    The color pink on it's own is to .... dare I say sweet, for my taste :-) However, I do really like pink with the brown to cut back the sweetness.
