More Jane's Bookamarks

These were revamped into crosses by Grace Tan. I enjoy making them. The one on the left, I made a mistake at the bottom, so I just made the same one on the top.

3 more bookmarks

This is what I got done while camping the past two weekends.  Both camping excursions included tractor pulls. My husband loves tractor pulls. I'd rather watch paint dry. So, I was very happy to stay at our trailer and tat. The spiral bookmark on the right side gave me some grief. I had made the whole thing and then realized that the first two rings were hooked up wrong to the next clover. Ahhhhh!. I was able to pick them out (backwards) and remake them. Not so easy when there was no picot to hook them to. But, I sure will be a lot more vigilant next time.

Butterfly and Snowflake hats

Got some more hats ready for today's market. I got the butterfly from Sarah Wood. It's a graph and was a little erroneous. But, I got it figured out. I utilized the split chain and ring methods. Always good practice for me. The white hat is a snowflake from Jon Yusoff's patterns. My thread is Lizbeth,Spring Garden.

Bits and Pieces

I spent last week at my mom's, about 120 miles north. She is 90 and still lives on her farm. The only animals she has are a few stray cats that have adopted her. Why not, the food's good. I only had a couple balls of thread with me. Something I will take note to rectify on the next visit. Anyway, I puttered away with what I had for colors. The two snowflakes are from Jon Yusoff's patterns. It all will someday brandish a cap.
Tonight is Farmers Market, but right now, (9:00a.m.) it's raining. I hope it will stop by early afternoon.
