The finishes...

 Here are better photos of the recent finishes...
 
 
The three stumpy bookmarks by Kirsti Anear.  (11, 12, 13/25 motif challenge) The purple thread is a DMC Cabelia in size 10, the other 2 threads are size 10, but have no labels.  Love that dusty rose in the middle...just a beautiful color!
 
 
More hair clips.  (14 & 15/25 motif challenge) These I make up as I go along, something different nearly everytime.  Really depends on the thread left on the shuttles. These are always fun to make, a lovely way to empty shuttles, and a great gift for little girls.   
 
 
Two more of Mary Konior's Large Cross from her book Tatting With Visual Patterns. (16 & 17/25 motif challenge) Both of these are done in vintage size 70 threads, neither had a label on them.  The black/silver/white is gorgeous!
 
 
Finally, the Norma Benporath lace mat.  (18/25 motif challenge) I did finish this back on January 2nd, but it has been sitting here waiting to be dampened and lightly pressed since...silly really.  But there you go...gorgeous pattern, loved tatting it!

  4. Stumpy is such a wonderful bookmark pattern, and you've chosen beautiful colors! I'm enjoying tatting crosses right now, but I'm still stuck on Jan Stawasz's pattern. I must get back to Mary Konior!

    1. Hoping to get that book for my Birthday. Love the crosses in that pattern that I have seen on your blog. Mary Konior's tend to be my favorite cross patterns...and large cross/stumpy my 2 favorite patterns to tat period.
