Spring Baskets

Spring is pushing its way here. :-) At least today that's how I felt. And what a better way to receive spring with baskets full of pretty flowers! Aren't these the cutest basket full of flowers? The pattern is by Ellen Lai and was discussed on Monday's online tatting class. It's pretty quick and really fun to make.

These are the empty baskets waiting for the little flowers. Even if both have the same number of stitches and used the same thread the one on the left is a little bigger. It was the first I made. May be the tension was a little off. Then the second looks better because I already know the pattern.

All the flowers and butterflies are made with one shuttle. Well, there's a little reddish/white flower on the second basket that is a ring surrounded with chains. My favorite technique to work with 2 sizes of threads.

Very cool clips!

Q: How are the little flowers and butterfly attached to the basket? Are their ends just tugged into the ds of the basket?
