Finally, here’s the completed bookmark I tatted for Vicki. Well, although I tatted with periwinkles in mind, I’m not sure if the flowers look sufficiently like periwinkles such that people can tell.

Bookmark for Mar 08 Round Robin
With the intention to come up with a floral bookmark for Victoria (Vicki) for the March International Round Robin, I did the orchid and tulip. But I wanted to give it another try and hit on the periwinkle flower while looking at our coins. Did a bit of history search, this is a brief info on the coins - Singapore’s 2nd (current) series of circulating coins bear the Flora theme featuring plants and flowers, aimed at enhancing the city’s image as a garden city. The $1 coin has a big periwinkle in the center, and surrounded by smaller ones.
