I have been playing around with motifs again. I find them fascinating to work with. In this one I was playing with combining different motifs to make unique design rather than one motif in repetition. I was also playing with color here also. I used 2 shades of light pink, white, and light olive green for this design. I did this one in size 10 threads with a size 7/1.65mm hook. It measures 13.5 inches across. I haven't written the pattern yet. But I did take good notes. Now I have to decide if I am going to write it out or not. More than likely I will sit down get this written in the next day or so.
So let me know what you think about this one.

Stunning!

(And I've "THIS ROCKS"ed you!)

I, personally, would LOVE a pattern or even some notes, and I have a sneaking suspicion that I won't be the only one.

Gorgeous work!

That is very pretty.  I'm glad to see doilies aren't entirely a lost art!

As your usual, another outstanding pattern.  Your combination of motifs gives it a 3-dimensional appearance.  I keep looking at it from different angles and seeing different things.  Thanks!
