japanese hexagon number two

This is another hexagon I designed for the lessons in Japan. It is not so effectful as the hexagon number one, but a good exercise for Maltese ring and Selfclosingmockring. Perhaps at the joinings of the round doily I could join another round to give it a better shape. I will try that out.

Perhaps this simple second round would better it. In this way I obtain a heart shape with a flower inside, which joins as a triangle.

What a beautiful motif! Are you designing pieces for another book? If so, put my name on your list!

Dear Diane,
no, I have no intention to make a book of haxagons, I would make it only, if I had a design class with a realisation of at least 12 designs from 12 different persons,with are worth beeing published. Among the 56 ladies, who partecipated at the design class in Japan, there were at least 15 extraordinary designs, but unfortunately Jusai did not contact me any more for the realisation of the book.
