Earrings, Snowflakes and Bookmarks

Janet has been laid up with a sprained ankle and that makes for lots of time to tat. She's been doing lots of experimenting with theTurkish filament threads and beads. Star shaped earrings, silvery loops and sparkly bats. The tatting is terrific but the camera's a little out of focus.

Snowy has finally received the books she ordered 3 weeks ago and she has completed a simple snowflake and another motif in red. The red motif looks adorable although she says she's fed up with it.

Laura has posted another bookmark. This one is Tabatha, a design by Kersti Anear, worked in DMC perle size 5 in a lovely shade of purple.

LaRae shares with us a motif done in 2002 for the Dodge House Christmas tree. The colours that year were blue, white and silver, simple, yet pretty.

The bookmark is lovely. It would be even nicer in a finer size thread, causing less stress on the book binding. Or a "bookmark" in a larger size can also be used as a wall hanging! How about a bell pull? Made longer, and a bell attached to the bottom...colors to coordinate with the room...so many possibilities!
