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.
