Connor's Lion bookmark

This is "Lion Bookmark" from Animal Bookmarks: A Tatted Zoo by Dianna Stevens.
It is tatted in size 20 Flora Ecru and the mane is my own hand dyed tatting silk in size 10 "Middle Earth.

I have nephews who are getting to that reading "age". The joy of reading is very important to me and I always try to instill it in the younger generations.
Connor is five and I am hoping that this bookmark will encourage him to love books.
You know, maybe just give him a little nudge.
And if I'm lucky maybe he will also learn to apreciate "handmade". I will write him a little letter and send this off next week. Now I need to get to tatting my other nephews a bookmark, I hope they treasure them. ... Yes I know they are boys but an auntie can try can't she??

To my TIAS'ers, if it's ok with you I am going to take this weekend off. Day 6 will be posted on Monday. That should give everyone a chance to catch up and give me a little breather.

Conner, and your other nephews, are very fortunate little men to have you for an auntie. I'm sure he will love lion bookmark. It looks terrific! By all means, have a weekend off and get some rest!

I have just caught up to Day 4 and just want to say what a well presented TIAS you are giving us. A huge amount of thought time and effort has gone into it.
I have no idea what it is going to be, thanks for it and have a good weekend,come back to us re-vitalised on monday.

Hi, your little lion bookmark is so cute. I'm sure Conner will love it, but what do I know, I don't even know Conner! LOL!!!
Enjoy your break and get some rest and I hope to get caught up on the TIAS this weekend!

Bookmarks are good gifts for boys/men, and I do agree that aunties can do it.
That lion is so cute, I am sure Connor will like it.
Get some relaxing.
