The first time I saw this pattern I knew I had to make this. :lol I changed the colors of the petals of the Outer Flowers. For the first layer of petals, I used lilac and the second layer purple as I wanted a more intense color. :manyheart

WOW! Just beautiful! I, too, badly want to make this but I don't know if I'm up for another doily! LOL Maybe we'll have a doily swap and I'll be lucky enough to get a partner to make that for me! :devil Maybe not...
