Ring Pillow for Daughter's Wedding

Wow, I can't believe how long it has been since I last posted. While I think of all of my tatting friends often, life has been very busy. As you might guess from the title, my most recent project was decorating the ring pillow for my oldest daughter's wedding. The photos are by Grant Dillion. I'm awed by the quality and creativity of some of the photos he took at her wedding.
The pattern is by Yvonne Reypa, April 2007. My copy is from back before I added the weblinks to the patterns before saving and I couldn't find it with a google search. If any of you have the link, please post it. 

This is a beautiful design, but it was very slow going. I alternated finger tatting and shuttle tatting. I do believe it was worth the effort, though.
