In April I posted a picture of some primroses on Facebook and Karen Parent reminded me that there was a pattern called 'Primrose Path'. So I went off to find the Mary Konior book which has it displayed on the front cover and the instructions inside and began tatting it. Because of such a busy life it took a few months to make this very small mat. I remember tatting it years ago and never was happy with the final result, but thought with more experience and different thread it would turn out better. There really were too many ends to deal with and in a way it doesn't look complete, there could almost be another row to bring it altogether. Such a long time was spent tatting this piece (with quite a few mistakes on the way) only to end up with the final piece being such a disappointment.
The real primrose path is much more effective
