Bookmarks 4-7.....

Yeah ok so it has been cold and wet and I have been on night shifts again!!!
Luckily bookmarks are just perfect for these conditions so got a few done this week.
Look out tatting...I'm back......

Pattern was found online - an adaptation of an old Anna edging. Not sure who has done this but if you can tell me that would be great so I can credit them. LOVELY pattern to do and good practice in split rings.

  4. Your tatting is impeccable as always! I LOVE looking at your work and I am glad you have come back to the fold!

    Where did you find that Julie Patterson book? After your last post I trawled the net and could find nothing. Her patterns are very good from what I have seen. 'Eye Spy" is awesome!

  8. Thanks for your comments.
    Frivole - I have had an email from Jane so I will adjust the blog to show whose idea the pattern was. Thanks for the info.
    Fox - Julie does still have some books but they are in storage and she is really busy with her restaurant. Hopefully we can encourage her to get them out again! If I find a copy I will let you know.
