Cherry Blossom Doily 1 Variation

Cherry Blossom Doily 1 Variation

It will be spring soon, and I am looking forward to the flowers. We have a tradition of going to see the cherry blossoms at the University of Washington. It is a pleasant time to walk around the campus, with light pink petals floating in the air. The cherry blossoms were my inspiration for the three motifs and three doilies in my book, Lovely Tatting: Doilies for Spring and Summer. At the time that I was working on them, I had also created a small variation of Cherry Blossom Doily 1, but we chose not to include it in the book. However, I am sharing it with you here today!
