bookmark exchange

Here are the bookmarks that I received from Jon in The Tatting Forum's exchange. I love them!!! So beautiful and the stitches are so small and perfect. Thank you so much Jon.

I should have some tatting to show you next week!!

Also just in case you are interested, a friend of mine is having a BabyLeg's giveaway on her blog. You can find it here

kitten's shirt is finished

Here is the shirt that I found for the kitten's tatted Valentines heart. It took a while, but I finally found a shirt that would work.

Not the best picture, but it has been rainy and dark here for a while. It looks adorable on her if I do say so myself. Although I was disappointed when she wore it to the rehearsal dinner for a wedding and no one noticed.

bookmarks from the exchange(13 and 14/25)

These are the bookmarks that I made for the bookmark exchange at The Tatting Forum.

The first bookmark I tatted from Kersti's Floral Bookmark Pattern, but I've heard that it is very similar to a pattern of Mary Konior. It is tatted in Lizbeth size 20 Country Turquoise Medium.

The second bookmark is Jon's Folder Over bookmark which I love by the way. I need to make one for me!! This is tatted in Lizbeth size 20 Wildflower Garden.

Hopefully I will have some more tatting to show you soon. There has been a bit too much travel, weddings, and other activities going on. I'm late on my Mother's Day gift!!

bookmark exchange

Life has been busy here of late--a bit of traveling to see family (and the craft stores), gardening, and just life. I have been tatting, but I can't share it with you yet. I'm participating in the bookmark exchange at the Tatting Forum and I received my first bookmark yesterday. This bookmark is from Bonnie. I love the colors and it is already in use in the book that I just started. Thanks again Bonnie. Mine went in the mail this morning.

Hopefully I will have some of my own tatting to share with you soon.
