Having Fun with Layered Flowers

Still playing around with this flower design (based on Edwige Renaudin's pattern).  I've tried two and three layers, different threads and added beads in different places.

I was wearing the pair tatted with "Macarons" by Tat-ilicious again today.

Sun is still shining - three days in a row!  We are spoiled.

Here's another photo in the shade.  Perhaps you can see the detail a bit better.

Hope the sun is shining on you too, wherever you are (though not too hot for our American friends I hope).

Best wishes,


  1. Really fabulous!!! I love all the colors and designs!! They are all so unique!! :)

  2. I do like the dimension in those flowers... very pretty!

  3. I bought that book a few weeks ago,and I love it! It sounds strange, I know, but although I cannot speak or write French,I can still read it - and I really enjoyed the section which discusses the history of tatting.The decision to go ahead with the purchase was the expectation that Volume 2 will follow in due course!

  4. The earrings are just gorgeous, where can I get the book from please?
    Joy in OZ

    1. Hi Niki, I got my book from Amazon (either or - I'm afraid I don't know where else it's available from.

  8. Lovely flower earrings, great colours.
    It's lovely to see the sun at last and today looks as good as yesterday, let's hope this weather stays for the Olympics, after all the rain and cold it's so nice to be on summer clothes
    Have a nice day in the sun

  9. Elles sont très jolies et dans toutes ces teintes c'est magnifique!!!!

  10. I somehow missed this post! Beautiful flowers! I love the 3-D effect that 'layering' creates. Excellenet use of beads, too!

    Glad you're finally getting some sun! We're getting some good rain lately (here in the Northeast USA), but it's been accompanied by some devastating storms in some areas. The lawns, amazingly, are starting to bounce back! We'll be able to track your weather easily for the next few weeks, with the Olympics!
