Motif # 1This little beauty was done in Lizbeth Scottish Thistle and Country Grape medium, both in size 40. The pattern is from Lene Bjorn's Tatted Bookmarks - Cross-shaped. I"m sending this cross half way around the world to my friend in Santiago, Chile.
My husband still reads real books and has been asking me for a while to make him a rainbow bookmark. I've made several others and he wanted one too.
Motif #2This is one of my favorite patterns and it is so fast and easy to tat up. The pattern is Jane's bookmark and can be found here. The thread is size 20 Rainbow Splash by Tat-ilicious.
Since Spring is almost here (it is here in Texas), I decided to make this lovely flower/butterfly pattern that I found here.
Motif # 3I used Lizbeth Sea Island Citrus in size 40. This bookmark was a joy to tat and I'm keeping it for myself for the moment, but I'm sure it will come in handy as a last minute gift one of these days.
And finally, in order to empty my shuttles of the Sea Island Citrus thread, I tatted this little butterfly.
Motif # 4
Martha Ess shared the pattern on her blog, so I thought I'd try it out. I think the picots are a little too big on mine and it loses the butterfly shape. I want to try it again with smaller outer picots. But I like the pattern and it's great for emptying a couple shuttles.
I've decided to take on another 25 motif challenge since I have such a great start just on this blog post.
