I am really enjoying tatting from Dianna Stevens book "ANIMAL BOOKMARKS, A Tatted Zoo" The tatted Owl Bookmark & tatted snake were fun to make. The snake was very easy, the body is worked using one shuttle. Only the head requires a shuttle and ball. The patterns are all too cute. I am working on a swan bookmark right now. This is the second one. I will scan and post a pictures when I am done. I think the swan bookmark is very pretty. I am looking forward to her next book "More Animal Bookmarks, A Zooquel" I'm sure it will be as fantastic as the first.

I wish I could go to Palmetto's Tatting Event. It looks like it will be such a fun time. Look how
cute these tatted block animals by Martha Ess are: BLOCK ANIMALS. I love the Flamingo best, and the Cat, Frog, Penguin, oh heck, I love them all. Great Job Martha! Well it is off to work. I'll finish up my swan bookmark and post the picture when I am done. I have a few other pictures I can post. I took another picture of my sea scene. It has grown a lot since the last picture I took and I still have more tatted pieces to tat and add to it. It is the never ending project. LOL! Happy Tatting !

Making Bookmarks

I finally got some time to add more pictures. I've been busy tatting bookmarks to give as gifts. The first one is a present for my son Cameron. He will be turning 11. Cameron is into football right now and we were all happy when our Pittsburgh Steelers won the Superbowl. So I made him a football bookmark. The pattern is by Mark Myers and can be found here at Tat-man. net The tail of the football is made in black and gold, Steelers colors, and I made five rings, one for each superbowl the Steelers have won. I used Pearl Cotton size 5. The football measures 3", but with the tail is 7" long.
I have made more bookmarks to add to my blog, but I have run out of time. I have to get ready for work. I'll try to add more pictures tomorrow.
