When my new threads were ordered I was accidentally shipped the wrong order. I was told to keep the one ball of thread and book (which turned out to be a tatting book with several designs in it I like!). The thread was a dark green and went perfectly with a deep red that I had ordered on my order. I got bold and pulled out some beads too....here is my very first tatted bookmark with beads. The pattern is called Stumpy and was designed by Kersti Anear.

Motif # 2:
I also had a couple on hand that I hadn't taken pictures of. I made them a while back and don't remember where I found the designs.

I will be doing more tatting in the future. I've decided to sign up for the 25 Motif Challenge for 2011. I'm looking forward to working on things for it.
