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.

TIAS:
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.

HDT:

Introducing "GRANNY DELICIOUS" hand dyed tatting thread. HOW YOU LIKE THEM APPLES?????

This image was borrowed from a free images library on the web.

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.

"HARVEST MOON"

Your threads are lovely and the kids are just too cute. I don't blame you for making them bookmarks one bit! Good for you for encouraging them to read...so important for their success in life.

Okay Sherry I am offering to help. I would be happy to store all that HDT at my place for you although I cannot guarantee that it will not end up being made into something. Oh to have that much HDT in my house.

The snakes look great and will be loved by the boys.
Oh all those yummy HDT's, I wish I could have one of each colour. Amazing job you do.
