Thread Crochet - Preview of One Motif of Work-In-Progress

Here is one Motif of a soon-to-be-finished project.

I have done this one in a special way because I wanted it to be, well, special!

In the center of the Motif is a 3-dimensional 3-layer flower made with a DMC Pearl Cotton variegated thread in dark oranges (almost organge-red) and lighter oranges and yellow - with some orange-gold blending filament on the edges of each petal for sparkle. Those small glistening gold spots in the photo are the orange-gold blending filament showing.

This 3-dimensional flower sits in a lace pattern of a tan brown thread - and on the outer rounds of this motif, you will see more of the glistening gold spots - more of the orange-gold blending filament.

6 of these motifs attached around a center flat motif will make up this round centerpiece - with the motifs, the finished piece will have more of a scalloped round shape.

The flat center will make it good for a centerpiece on a table where you can put a bowl or vase or other pottery or even a small statue or large figurine.

I hope to have this finished and up for sale in my Etsy shop within a few days.

The DMC Pearl Cotton, with its wonderful colors and "pearly effect" -- and the orange-gold Krenik blending filament are what makes this Special!
