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.
