I was given these crochet, tatting and hardanger books by a cousin of mine recently. There are so many things in here I would love to learn ; was so eager to try something from the Irish crochet book.
I tried the rose motif which I thought would be an easy one for a start. After few re-doings [i had copy it in US terms] I was able to understand it better.

**sorry for the quality of the pictures as it is not easy get clear ones on winter mornings**
There is always something new to learn; hopefully, I did it right.
