Marathon Tat... all know I have been working on some crosses in my older daughter's school colors for end-of-the-year teacher gifts.  Well, little Rosie Posie has been asking which ones were for her teachers and I've been "I don't know"ing it away, unsuccessfully.  Not that I didn't want to, I just wasn't sure I could get it all done.  She was very insistent last night that her teachers should receive crosses too, and I agreed.  So looked through what I had on hand and found 5 of these Mark-My-Word crosses by Mary Konior.  Those seemed about right.  I thought that would be plenty...

Well, this morning when I dropped her off at school, I asked how many teachers.  There are 8, and I needed 3 more I hurried home and got busy.  It was only 3.5 hours before the end-of-the-year party...I managed 2 more with having to make cards and eat lunch too...and found another bookmark (not a cross) to make the 8, it was the best I could do.  It felt like a marathon...but was worth it.  The crosses/bookmark's were all well received.  The program has been a treasure, my little one has learned so much!

Here are the two crosses I tatted this morning...
Size 20 Lizbeth in Sea Scape and Jelly Bean.

Here is the little bit about tatting I included in the cards...
just to explain the bookmarks a little bit...(mostly pulled, hurriedly, from Wikipedia)
I like people to understand something of what they have received when I do give my tatting.

Back to finishing existing projects now (I hope)...

    1. Thank you...those colors are fun! I grabbed new balls that I hadn't played with yet :-) Particularly liking the "sea scape" one!!!

  2. What a wonderfully thoughtful teacher gift! I love the colors you used!

    1. They seemed well received, I am glad to know that you think it was a good idea...that helps! It makes me nervous to give my tatting to people, I'm afraid. I do try to give with both hands and not hold back when I do though.

  3. Nicely written piece you included with the bookmarks(they're so pretty and a thoughtful gift!)

    1. I, of course, see where I want to tweak that piece for future use, but thank you for saying that it is nicely written :-) I am so hopeful that the bookmarks will be enjoyed if not treasured...thank you!!!


Thank you for your comments...they are read and treasured!
