Continuing down the Primrose Path
While waiting for my new Lizbeth threads (yes, they came!), I decided to play some more with the center of Primrose Path from A Pattern Book of Tatting by Mary Konior.
I think it was Sharon who wrote about the importance of paying attention to where you start when working with variegated or multi-color threads. I never really thought about that idea until I read the blog post, and this is the first time I paid attention to where in the color change I began the motif.
The center of this doily is actually four motifs, and I did pay close attention to where I started each one. Looking at the two, I think I prefer the way the color flows on the right one (the left one is the first one I tatted). I'm not sure I like the turquoise and light blue in the center, though. I may tat another center to see if I can get some green in those center rings. Then again, maybe I'll just finish the ones I've started!
