Bookmarks

I finally took the time this evening to retat the last chain of Jeff's Sine Wave Bookmark. My mother loves the colors and style so I'm going to give it to her.

An opportunity to ride rather than drive for several hours today gave me time to tat a bookmark for my great-nephew. He asked for a cross bookmark and this one is tatted in his favorite colors. The orange thread is Altin Basak size 50 and the black is Flora size 20. The two threads are actually very similar in size. The pattern is the Double Chained Cross by Jackie Giuntini of New South Wales, Australia. It was published in Volume 3, Issue 3 of Tatter Tales (August 1998).

Very nice! I should start asking my relatives what colors they'd like before tatting bookmarks... I might find some interesting color combinations!

Thank you, all. This cross pattern is a favorite of mine and letting the kids select their colors is adding to my pleasure and to theirs.
