Felted Scissor keepers which I made earlier in the year - put onto some pretty little embroidery scissors which I bought at a local craft shop - they made for Birthday Pressies for my lace making and Stitchety friends :) and of course one for me :D

Tatted bookmarks

Hi All - Yes - I am still here - been really busy the last few weeks in my studio - back in April I participated in a tatted bookmark exchange - I decided to look on the internet for some inspiration and visited a tatting blog which I go to regularly - Singtatter and saw a picture of a bookmark called "Floral Vine" - I couldn't find a pattern so I "blew up" the photo and printed it in black and white and drew up my own pattern - I made the first one (the pinky purple one on the far left) but fell in love with it and didn't want to give it away LOL! so I then made the next one from the left - dark green and orange and that is the one which now lives in South Australia - I received a beautiful one from the lady in return but haven't taken a pic of it yet - when I do - I will post it on here :D I have not done a huge amount of tatting and I have never used 2 shuttles before -so actually learned something new :D
