made a page for my new binder

I have so many photo copies patterns in tatting. So, I bought a new pretty pink binder and made a title page for it. Such fun.

New bookmarks

The pink bookmark is Bree's pattern. I never did find out how she did it in one piece, but it came together. The other two belong to Rachel. I do like that pattern. And the variegated thread from Lizbeth.

They show up better with red behind them. I painted them with iridescent, frosty, sparkle. Wish it would show up. These are for hanging on a tree.

sparkly snowflakes

There, they show up better with red behind. Wish the sparkles showed up

tatted small cross

I liked making this little cross. The design is from Rachel. xstchntat. 
The bottom snowflake, I made so long ago, I don't know where the pattern came from. It's been sitting for years. The top one was supposed to be just a triangle. It hadn't met by three points, so I kept going. I like it.

I got this idea from a book in a little store in Calgary. I've made some changes. It was a little experiment. Not sure I like it that much.

flower bookmark

Finally got this put together. Now that I know how, I like it and plan to make more.
I've pulled a muscle in my leg, so I've had lots of time to tat while I sit on my massage seat. Only goes to show, I should be tatting instead of working in the garden. he he.

apple and watering can

I've made two new tats for cards. The apple is from Mark Myers, thank you Mark. It was fun to make. I glued it to a green card.
 The water can is a design from Jane Eborall, thank you Jane. I appreciate that people have posted their patterns. I added a little flower to the can. Notice the water coming out?
