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.

The Final Two

Here are the final two bookmarks for my bookmark project:


They are both tatted in Lizbeth size 40 thread, the one on the left is done in Ocean Turquoise Light and the one on the right is done in Black. The design for the blue bookmark comes from my table runner, which is still a work in progress that I hope to get back to soon. The black bookmark is inspired by one of the Round Robin doilies on Craftree. I really liked the five petaled element that Martha Ess used in the doily center, and wanted to incorporate it into a bookmark.

In total there are 12 bookmark patterns for this project. I still have a few minor changes that I'm making to some of the patterns, and then I will be able to start diagramming them on the computer.

Two more to go

I made a couple more bookmarks this past week. Now I just have two more that I want to make before I start writing up and testing the patterns. The first one is tatted in Lizbeth size 40, Seagreen Dark:


The second bookmark is tatted in Lizbeth size 20, Caribbean:


I've been using the Amaziograph app to brainstorm some of the bookmarks. Here's my drawing for the first bookmark:


And my drawing for the second bookmark:


They don't always come out exactly like the drawings, but I find the drawings to be a helpful reference.

Flowery bookmarks and Etsy sale

Here's a couple of flowery bookmarks, made in one pass using split rings:


The yellow one is done in Lizbeth size 20 Pineapple Parfait, and the one next to it is done in Lizbeth size 80 Easter Eggs. I have about four more bookmarks that I'd like to create before I get started on compiling and testing the patterns.

I'm having an Etsy sale during the end of May (starting today, May 23rd and going until Thursday, May 31st). Everything in the shop is 20% off and the discount is automatically applied. If you miss this sale, don't worry, I'll be having another one at the end of November. But, if you want to save a few bucks and start on some summer tatting, head on over and take a look.

More Bookmarks

Here's a few more bookmarks I've made over the past couple of weeks:


I still have ideas for several others, and these patterns will be available as a bundle later in the year. Check back next week though, because I'll be having a sale on all of the other patterns in my Etsy shop. I'll probably start that around Wednesday, May 23rd and it will run until the 31st of May.
