Time for some Tatting Updates!

I got some things blocked and photographed so now it's time to do a little updating on my tatting.

I've never done a cross bookmark yet but when I saw the one Julie did as a tweaked  version of a cross bookmark pattern in Christmas Angels and Other Tatting Patterns by Monica Hahn, I just had to try it. This is my attempt in Medium Purple and White.

Motif # 24:

I love making the Black Magic design by Mary Konior and enjoy working it up as a bookmark. Here's one done in soft spring colors.

Another bookmark I saw recently done by Lace-Lovin Librarian I also just had to try and that was the Lace Bookmark by Emsyjane (pattern available in her Etsy store - http://www.etsy.com/shop/emsyjane). I also did it in the same soft spring colors.

Motif # 25:

That last one completed my first go round of the 25 Motif Challenge....but I'm signing up to do it again so here's the first one of the next set.

Last but not least...I don't remember where I saw this edging but I had to try it as a bookmark. It is similar to Curds and Whey by Mary Konior but not quite the same. I think it came out nicely done in a pretty pastel aqua.

Motif # C2-1

All of these will be available in my Etsy store as soon as I can get them uploaded.

I have more to take pictures of, so watch for more soon!

I just received Mary's book, and I began 'black magic' in white. Yours looks so pretty in the varigated thread, that I think I'll try that instead of white.

They're all so pretty! I've never managed to follow the Black Magic pattern, but I really want to... now I'm really inspired! I love the colors you've used!

I think bookmarks are a great way to try new patterns, and yours are all lovely!

The black magic pattern is a bit confusing but once you get it figured out it goes quickly. And it looks great in solids or varigated colors! I definitely recommend giving it a try.

I have the book with those patterns in since she published years ago and I still love doing her patterns.
You have done some gorgeous bookmarks and lovely colours.
well done

Thank you all. I had *SO* much fun making these! I'll probably make some more.
