I started tatting Mary Konior's "Clover" from Tatting with Visual Patterns. I like the pattern and the thread (Olympus Special No. 40), but I'm not sure if this is right for the hanky. I have plenty of hanky blanks, so I know I'll use the edging for one of them. I'm also planning on trying some pink, blue, and green threads to see which one I like best.
In the meantime, I decided to tat a cross bookmark.
This is "Camilla" from Tatted Bookmarks - cross-shaped by Lene Bjorn. The thread is size 40 Lizbeth Caribbean, one of my favorites! It's funny, I've avoided tatting this cross before, because I thought it was composed of split rings. I'm so glad I tried it. This is one of the easiest cross bookmarks I've ever tatted, and one of the prettiest!
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!
