25 Motif challenge 7 of 25

I really think this peticular one is my favorite
It took me several days and many tearing aparts later to get it right
the first one looked so funny that I am not even gonna show you lol
Can you guess what they are ??
FUSCHIA'S ~ they arent the greatest but I think they turned out ok
used a size 10 thread and 5 needle
:::BASE PATTERN FOR STEM:::
This part is a bit tricky well for me it was anyways because I never attempted it before :)
R: 1-1-1-1-1-1 cl
-1+(p)-1+(p) continue this way around you must put a picot before you do the ds or you may get lost like I did on my first several attempts lol pull each row as you go to make the stem piece. continue until you have about 1/2" and you should have 6p around if not just add one in I am not a master pattern writer lol
cut tie hide ends
CH: + at any picot...1-1+1-1+1-1+1-1+1-1+1-1+at beginning you should still have 6 picots
cut tie hide ends
CH: + at any picot... 1-1-1+1-1-1+1-1-1+1-1-1+1-1-1+1-1-1+at beginning you should now have 12 picots
cut tie hide ends

Your fuchsias looks great. They are very realistic looking. Thanks for sharing the pattern.

Very nice job! Your fuschia pattern turned out great. I'm adding this to my "Tatting Patterns I Gotta Tat" list!
