Flowery Bookmark

Last Saturday I met with the Oklahoma Shuttle Bugs Tatting Group. One of my tatting friends gave me a copy of Jane Eborall's flowery bookmark pattern. When I got home I picked out this lovely variegated Lizbeth Size 20 thread named sherbet delight. I thought the medium leave green goes well with it. I really like this pattern. There are split rings, self closing mock rings and special joins to keep things interesting. I still need to block it before I give it to my friend for a hostess gift. This is my motif # 12 the second time around. Jane Eborall has a very extensive free pattern page. Thank you Jane for sharing your lovely patterns with all of us! Here is the URL for the pattern: http://www.e.n.e.btinternet.co.uk/Flowerbookmark.pdf

  1. Excellent pattern, beautifully tatted! The variegated threads and HDT we now have give us an endless pallette to choose from, and they bring 'flower' patterns to life! I also like your spiral chain and the tassel. This will be a VERY special gift!!

    Jane is 'tops' in my book, for her incredible talent, generosity and dedication to tatting! We are so lucky to 'know' her via the internet! Her sense of humor always brightens my day!

    You not only 'took' to the shuttle, you excel at it! Your work is beautiful!

  5. A great bookmark. Colours and motif match perfectly. It looks really flower-like. Even the tassel looks great with those colours. Something to be proud of!

  10. Beautiful! How did you do the tail? It's different from the pattern. I would love to make this for my friend who loves books.
