Doilies, Tatted ring and Bookmarks

Diane has been having "issues" with her tatting. The beautiful Stella Alpina has a mistake at the very beginning that is challenging to fix, so she put it aside in favour of a pattern from Tatting by Myra Piper to get her back in the groove, only sadly, this pattern also misbehaved and was cut off just short of completion. Spinning Wheels is helping her to cope.
Fox had to tat just one more. This one is in unfamiliar colours, but it turned out perfect.

Shirl had a lot of tatting time last week which resulted in a whole collection of tatted bookmarks. The threads used are Lizbeth size 20 in Dark Purple #633, Lizbeth size 10 in Spring Green #680, the fawn brown is Lizbeth size 20 in #691, Lizbeth size 20 in Antique Violet Med.#640, Lizbeth 100% Cotton size 20 in Seagreen Lt. #686, Lizbeth size 20 in #601 for the cross and Lizbeth size 20 in Salmon Med.#628. Some of these are available in her Etsy shop.

These bookmarks are all gorgeous. The cross looks familiar- is it from the Rebecca Jones book?

Thank you for the comments on my bookmarks. I have no idea where the pattern originated from. The pattern was handed down to me and it's an old copy that is all marked up.

This is my second motif: http://craftbymarfka74.blogspot.com/2010/06/serce-do-pary-wzor-jon-yusoff.html
Pattern is from Jon Yousoff pattern site, and tread is the same Aida as in my previous motif (but I don't remember name of colour and thickness determination).
