About Me

My photo
I retired early because my legs don't like holding me up for too long. So now I can do things in my own time. I like to sell things at farmers market. Most of which, I've made myself, e.g. homemade soap, crochet dish cloths, hand towels, baby afghans and of course,..tatting.

Jane's Bookmark Hat

I was making Jane's bookmark with Lizbeth Ocean Sunset, and was really enjoying the pattern. So I kept going until I had a piece long enough for a cap. Hence, a Jane's bookmark cap.

Jane's Bookmark

This bookmark was named for Jane Eborall and Jane McLellan. It's an adaption and modernization of a braid pattern from Anna Burda. I really enjoyed making the pattern. I've already started another one. The tail is all split rings and a little medallion.

Black and gold Spiral bookmark

I'm still enjoying making these. So many colors, so little time. I tried an onion ring on the flower. Not my best work. Oh well, I know now what Jane hates them.

More Spiral Bookmarks

Here are three more spiral bookmarks. I'm still having fun with them. The black and white one is particularly different. On the clovers, I added a tiny picot so I could attach them along the sides. That made them stay in their places better. And on the tail I did a spiral. It's just one half of the stitch for the whole way.
