FROM Designer Karey Solomon's, "Tatting Times" a wonderful little Cloverleaf Bookmark. I did this in Valdini size 8 ~ not my favorite thread (I like firmer threads) and this piece was just placed on scanner ~ not blocked. My blocking boards are FULL...:>(
However, I tucked it in a thread exchange padded envelope anyway...I always like receiving motifs from other tatters ~ treasures, really. Because we who tat, realize that time was taken, and each piece is a practice in basics for the future pieces. I thank those who have commented on the progression of my tatting.
I shall have to put my thinking cap on for another 25 ~ I have so many pattern books to choose from, should be an easy task ~ but somehow the decision is just more difficult. I have new books from both Rosemarie Peel (2009) and one from Judith Conners (2000). I might do pieces from those because IMHO they are both great little books for beginners and experienced beginners.
