I admit it. The fact that I had a less than perfect bookmark to give away was weighing on my mind, so I tatted another. The top one is one ring short. There should be seven rings on each side. As my mom would say, a blind man on a galloping horse would never know the difference! However, I know! The up side to this experience is that I now have a Jimi Hendrix bookmark for me!
I think the end of the school year has taken its toll on my brain. I started Stella Alpina over again, because I realized I made a huge mistake! If you look near the quarter on the doily on the right side, you'll see a beautiful line of clovers. Too bad that's not the way they're supposed to look! Now look at the doily on the left side. Note that the two clovers on top are NOT joined. Ahh! There lies the rub! See the next set of clovers? Notice how beautifully they are joined. That's how the top two are supposed to look. Guess when I noticed the mistake? As I was placing the pieces on the scanner! I think I'll start Stella Alpina over in a different colored thread... this one must be jinxed!
I'm a retired elementary computer teacher/librarian, mother to four, grandmother to seven. I love lace. I love books. I love to collect. Now that I'm retired, I know I'll never be bored because I have so many interests, as well as the goodies I need to indulge my whims!
