*Dutch for 'a tulip'.Sharp eyed Isdihara was right. It's a tulip. The reason for a tulip? It's Tulip Time in Holland! Holland, Michigan, that is. The western side of the state has a strong Dutch heritage and they celebrate it every May. Always a lot of fun and more tulips than you can shake a stick at.
My tulip is actually German in nature because it was designed by Adelheid Dangela and can be found in her book Mustersammlung I. Tatted using DMC threads in pale peach, melon, and light green it measures nearly 12"(30.5 cm). I'm quite pleased with how it turned out and want to get it framed. I still have to get my big butterfly framed, but cash is a bit tight at the moment. Just another thing to add to the list of things to get done.
