An account of the craftwork I get up to, tatting, spinning, knitting, sewing, whatever

I'm working on Mary Konior's Masquerade. I just love the way the motifs come together to make interesting shapes in between.
I had a couple of false starts. The first flower had too many petals. The first motif had petals that are all the same, whereas the outer petals should be 3-6-6-3 and the inner ones 3-4-4-3. The good thing about doing a practice motif was that I realised that the tension needs to be very firm, especially on the short chains between each repeat. And picots must be kept small.
