Weekly Challenge #10

This week’s pattern was my first accidental variation while following a pattern.  Accidents can be very pretty things. You are getting one of my patterns this week for a couple of reasons. One is that I have company in town (my awesome Mum-in-law and my Aussie grandmother, who is currently visiting the states) – so I’m a bit pressed for tatting time. Secondly, today is a day that I remember my forever 13 brother – I love and miss him lots. So hearts for everyone. Family is wonderful and I do hope that everyone is able to take some time to enjoy their family and friends.

The pattern for the original medallion can be found in Priscilla Yoke Book by Georgette Batt (for a pdf copy visit: http://www.antiquepatternlibrary.org). It is located on pages 32 and 33.
