couple of motif bookmarks

It has been a long time since I tatted Sarah's First Bookmark so I made myself one in my favorite Manuela variegated thread. Then I decided that Fox's Abigail motif would make a great motif bookmark as well. I apologize, Fox, for messing it up on my first try. I repeated the clover instead of the large ring as I rounded the top. I was at the beginning of the next clover before I realized what I had done so I decided to continue anyway.

Those are so pretty! I really like the idea of taking a pretty motif and using it for a bookmark. I tend to fizzle when I'm tatting the last half of a long bookmark. Such beautiful colors in that thread!

Well, I must say, that does look pretty snazzy! : ))

Bookmark is a great idea...

very nice job, and Abigail looks nice with a clover on top :) those rings are soooo hard to take out once you do them, so kudos for completing the project anyhow, it still makes a beautiful bookmark :)

Thanks for the kind remarks. The only thing I find I have to be careful about with motif bookmarks is to keep the tassel or tail thin. Otherwise you get too much bulk in the book.

Your Abigail bookmark really does shine with your embellishment. Bellissima!
