Blossom Fan - pattern by Amanda Yeh

This wonderful pattern from Amanda Yeh's book - 'Exqisite Bags in Parchment Craft' is not for the faint hearted.  But like all Amanda's patterns,  it is grid work through and through which is my favourite part of parchment work.  It was a question of now I have started I will finish and I was up til this morning because I just couldn't leave it.  This second book of Amanda's is challenging to say the least but I think the result is worth it.  I have mounted it on 10 x 8 ready to be framed.

Here is a close up of the ribs and bow

  I hope you like it.

(sorry Debs - I'll try and get back to some more flowers xx).
