I remember that I went very slowly when I first tatted it, I didn't know if the pattern would have cupped and how many petals I would have to tat. I tatted petals first and then the circular center. Now I started from the center (yellow) and I feel as though it is a very quick pattern. It's always worth having another go.
But I've 2 other doilies already started: the Large Centerpiece by Anne Orr and the Floral Bouquet Doily by Tomoko Morimoto. I tat them here and then so they grew slowly, but I'll finish them. I hope. Not soon though...
