I tested my own pattern :lol because I wanted to make some for gifts and the only mistake I found was on the eye I corrected it just needed to join to first sc before fastening off.

Alisha, I'm almost finished making the flamingo, I'm working on the 2nd leg and then I'll attach them, I'll post a picture when I'm done and I hope you like how mine turned out. It really is a loving gesture to honor your mother in such a way. :hug :manyheart
