In Emiko Kitao's book, there is a pattern for this flower bud. I decided to try it out using this tiny white thread Size 150 and then compare it to a Size 20 thread.
It is tiny, measuring only 6 and 10mm respectively. I am sorry, I could hardly see where to join the picots to. My eyesight isn't what it use to be.
But it was a nice exercise. Thank you C.
