Never has the humble ring and chain repeat been put to such glorious use! Structurally sound and immediately recognizable, the opulent tatted orchids presented by Toni Storer of Australia would delight the heart of any prom-going teen or wedding-weepy mother-in-law. So realistic looking I would not be surprised to find these tatted beauties used in Ikebana flower arrangements.
The lavender Cattleya Toni presents gave me a warm and fuzzy moment as it looked just like the ones I carried in my own wedding bouquet. This delicate pink blossom represents an Epidendrum Orchid. And there is a diagram for one of the "sepals" given here, too. Sepal, petals, labellum, column, stems are all illustrated and diagrammed in full color on all of the 17 pages.
From the garden to the hothouse, Toni has tatted up a bouquet of flowers for us to enjoy. What next I wonder? Wildflowers from the Outback? I can't wait to see.
If this gives you trouble printing, save the page to your computer, insert it into a word processing document as a jpg and then resize so that you can read it.
