MOTIF # 11


This Floral Spray is an example of Helma Siepmann's Creative (free) Tatting.

This is a compilation of lessons, culminating in the Basic Flower found on page 9 of her book.
I chose the colors of fall ~ Valdini in various colors.
This style of tatting is fun, non-frustrating and addictive~ It was a good time....
