Spring Bookmark exchange

As a member of Intatters we are doing a Spring Bookmark Exchange, I have been unable to get a really good picture so I am sorry the quality of the picture is not good. The pattern is Wrought Iron from Tatting in Lace by Mary Knoior. This I tatted in Lizbeth no 20 Sea Shell, which is the colours of Light shell pink and antique violet I added glass pink pearl beads in the centre of the rings just to add a little more interest. The teasel on the end of the twisted robe I found on the Internet a few weeks ago, I found that my hands are not as flexible as they used to be and twisting the thread was hard but I got there in the end, I think this needs a lot more practice. This is going in the post today to the nominated member.
I found this a lovely pattern and although I have had this book since it was published in the 1980's I cant remember doing this pattern before, and I have already done another one in blue, as I am on a roll with this pattern you maybe seeing a few more over the next few months.
I have not been very good over the last couple of weeks, I have had several days when I just cant face food and feeling sick all day theres still no news on the op so its just a matter of waiting. The GP did do some blood tests to check nothing else was going wrong but it appears that its the gall bladder that's playing up.

I thought you might like to see my orchid with three flowers out and another one looks like it will be out within a few days.
I hope you are keeping well and hopefully the weather will improve and the lovely sunshine and warmth will come back, then I can enjoy my new garden relaxer chair. Today is dull and dizzly must not moan the gardens and farmers do need the rain.
Until we meet again in blog land, take care
