More Magas

Thank you for your comments in the Maga post. I tried tatting it again using Perle Cotton Size 8 thread. Thank you Wally for the pattern and your tip. I tried it in the orange bloom. The difference is that the petals are wider and I like it. Now, how can I make the petals overlap a little like yours?


  1. Looks like the chain stitch is easier for you! These are pretty, but I think I really like the other shape! Even if it was a mistake.

    Wally certainly has some great designs.
    Fox : )

  2. Lovely! I like the open bits with the picots. The flowers look so delicate and pretty.

  3. Much better! (Although the previous had 'something' too.)

  4. You're certainly doing a LOT of tatting! The Tischband project is amazing!

    You're 'mistake' on the hibiscus does have an appealing shape, but Wally's design is lovely and is very realistic!

    I have a red hibiscus plant that I've managed to keep alive during the winter by bringing it inside, and I love the 'surprise' of seeing the large flowers pop out fully formed (although only lasting a day or two), all winter long.

    I was intrigued to read that Hawaii's national flower is the YELLOW hibisicus flower! I admit I'm kind of partial to the red one!

  5. Lovely I like your colours, I am going to try this flower

    Thank you for your comments on my blog, I do intend to put a butterfly on the blanket.


  6. Those are very pretty too!! :)

  7. Awesome, these! I like the combination of colours you've used on the flowers!
