Ornamental Cornelia

Here it is: "Cornelia" from Iris Niebach's Tatted Doilies as a Christmas ornament in King Tut quilting thread. The original doily has eight repeats of the pattern. It curves pretty well around the ornament with only six repeats. The bottom motif is simply the inner portion of the doily with some chains to move from one repeat to the next without having to complete the whole doily twice. Two six-repeat doilies wouldn't fit on the ornament, you see. Beads would be good, don't you think? Still, even without beads, the pictures really don't do it justice. It's a pretty thing.
