Happy International Tatting Day and motif #1 2nd round

Yesterday on internation Tatting Day, I did all things tatting.
First I updated my blog, ate chocolate, and then I finished the hand towels
I am doing for presents for my nieces and nephews .
Then I tatted a piece just for me, and finished it today.
This is Ring of Rosies from Mary Konior's Tatting with Visual Patterns
in Milford Satin 2ply Red.  I even challenged myself to learn catherine
wheel joins and joined all the chains in the rings by this method.  After
the first flower I had learned it and didn't have to think too hard, so it was
relaxing to tat as I sat under the tree in our backyard on a beautiful autumn day.
The chains in the centre could have been a bit tighter and the centre
picot a bit bigger. Otherwise I really like it.
