Bookmark patterns are in the shop

After many months of designing, writing, and testing, the bookmark patterns are finally available in my Etsy shop! You can click HERE to go directly to the listing.


There are more photos within the listing that show all of the designs. Thanks again to everyone who helped with the test tatting. If you test tatted these and did NOT receive the final version of the ebook, please let me know.

A few days ago, Etsy was having some issues that caused a delay in receiving instant downloads. It looks like it has cleared up now, but if you encounter any issues don't hesitate to contact me. I can send files for any patterns in my shop.

Revisiting my first Etsy pattern

While the bookmarks are out for testing, I've been doing a little more pattern writing and test tatting myself. I felt that my 2014 pattern "Ice Dance" was in desperate need of a rewrite. It was the first pattern that I put in my Etsy shop and I think my pattern writing has improved a lot since then.


The updated pattern contains new diagrams and full written instructions, as well as an easier variation of the original Ice Dance design. It is available in my Etsy shop. If you purchased the original pattern, please reach out to me so that I can send you the new file at no cost. I didn't want to harass everyone who bought the pattern before, so I only sent Etsy convos to the people who have purchased Ice Dance in 2018.

Also, if you accidentally purchase this pattern and realize that you previously bought the original, it's really easy for me to issue a refund. Just let me know.

Nearly there

I've finally finished up my bookmark patterns and they have been sent off to test tatters. Here's a photo of all of the bookmarks on the table:


It should only be a few more weeks before these patterns will be available in my Etsy shop.

Bookmark project update

I wanted to post an update on my bookmark project since I haven't written about it for a while. The diagrams are complete and there are two more patterns that need written instructions. I've also begun test tatting some of the patterns:


There's still several pictorials to make (some for tassels and some for techniques such as onion rings). I'll be working on this project through the month of August and will hopefully have patterns ready to send to testers in the beginning of September.

More trefoils

I added some more trefoils to my table runner, and have just turned the corner of the third column:


After this, the fourth and fifth columns will taper downward, with the fifth column acting as a border. Then I will need to double the length of the runner to span the other half of the table. Here is how it will lay on the table:


As you can see, there is still a long way to go. I probably won't be finished with it until sometime next year.
