A Quick Update Before I Move on to My WIP

My grandson put in a special request for a snake bookmark after seeing the wonderful collection in Dianna Stevens' Animal Bookmarks, A Tatted Zoo. He chose Lizbeth color #100 (Falling Leaves). I used Lizbeth color #694 (Harvest Orange) for the head. Both are size 20. It is marking his place in his latest read.
Motif #25 for the 25 Motif Challenge

And just in case you want to see how ridiculous it looks to try to make the Konior Spinning Wheel Glass Mat 5 times larger, here it is. I started out from the center as BattyTatter suggested to make it easier to join the final arm to the first. Looks more like a horseshoe, doesn't it? It's okay to laugh. 
I'm excited to see that Renulek has released another round for the Spring 2016 WIOSNA. I'm definitely going to make some decisions and get caught up, but that will have to wait for tomorrow.
For now, I'm off to do some tatting on my WIP Wednesday doily. Just four more arches to do and that doily is finished. Maybe today will be the day.

Update: I managed to complete one arch this evening, but that makes 4.5 completed since last Wednesday. Only 3 arches left to go.

Or that could be the big letter "C" if you ask me,:) I didn't know she released round 9 wow, although I have a memorial day project to finish first :)

My grandson would love that snake bookmark. I do have the book, so I suppose I should tat one up for him! I love the color you've used.

I'm interested to see how your large Spinning Wheel turns out. It really does develop a strong curve!

Great snake bookmark!! :)
Looks like a great try on the extra large spinning wheel! And I agree with Madtatter80 that is could be a large letter C. :)
I am sure you will finish your doily soon and it will look wonderful!!! :)

What a lovely tatted snake bookmark - it is so wonderful to have a customized gift :-)
Your enlarged spinning wheel is very interesting & intriguing! Join 2 halves and you have a beautiful doily edging !

Lovely snake bookmark,
I am doing the spinning wheel mat only I keep getting distracted only one more arm to do and when I counted the middle rings it's yet another one to do, might get finished one day.

Sorry the comment is late I am all behind.
