A bookmark for Ozzy
This is "Snake Bookmark" from Animal Bookmarks: A Tatted Zoo by Dianna Stevens.It is tatted in my size 20 "Macaw" hand dyed tatting silk.
Connor and Austin respectively.
These are the little dudes who are getting the bookmarks. I just love these guys! I made a snake for Austin because he loves reptiles and one day he came home with a frog in his pocket.
Oz is a second grader now and has been reading for awhile, but I don't think he has a bookmark like this one.
I am going to send a little stats sheet to go along with the bookmarks with stuff like how many knots it took to make. Boys love that stuff...at least I think they do.
Hubby has been asking me everyday for the last couple of weeks, "Have you taken a photograph of all your threads together to post on your blog?". I swear, it's like groundhog day...I always answer "Didn't you ask me that yesterday?"
It's become a bit of a joke so I am putting an end to it by actually doing as he suggests.
Represented in this photo is months upon months of work...and I still have more ideas coming. My hubby says they look really yummy displayed together...like a candy shop.
Just for the record no one has yet sent me a correct guess for the TIAS....but I am sure all that will change soon....
I just got Marilee's Boutique Tatting in the mail. Her book looks fantastic. It is a definite MUST HAVE for your tatting library.
Introducing "GRANNY DELICIOUS" hand dyed tatting thread. HOW YOU LIKE THEM APPLES?????

Also since I am greatly anticipating Autumn (It's still blazing hot here in Korea BLAH!) I can't seem to stop making Fall related dye batches.
