I have so much more I want to learn I am quite sure I will be tatting for years to come...but I think it's time for my sharing to have it's own venue rather than simply on my facebook page...so here is my most recent endeavor for anyone who would like to see it...
This is Kersti Anear's "Stumpy" Bookmark Pattern
I did 4 of these beautiful little bookmarks and am counting this as #1 of my 25 motif challenge (http://25motifchallenge.blogspot.com/).
The turquoise and the variegated lavender threads are probably a size 10, though they feel slightly heavier than that, more like a modern size 5 thread, and are what I'm just going to call "vintage" crochet cottons I've been given over the years. The variegated lavender is labeled J.&P. Coats Knit-Cro-Sheen, the turquoise has no label at all.
The other's are Coats Royal Classic Crochet Thread (mercerized cotton) in Ocean and Burgundy, both size 10. These are currently available threads
Someday, I hope to have some beautiful hand dyed thread (HDT) to share...but not yet, I am happy to have so many colors to work with and am pleased with that for present.
