Summer Fun........... what this summer? 13/25 motif challenge


This is a new thread I treated myself too, when I had to buy some white thread,  its called Summer Fun, by Lizbeth.  I used No 20 thread.
Summer Fun not this year its been the mostly a wet summer ,   with a few sunny dry days just to let us know there is a sun up there,  well it was shining somewhere but not necessarily in the UK.
These are what I made with the new thread, 

The Bookmark is Kersti's tatted floral bookmark which I have done several times.
If you would like the pattern here is the link

The heart is a new pattern which I was not happy with I found that the written pattern just had how many double stitches and picots  but nothing to say where the joins were.  As when I read the pattern it was 3 double stitches between the picots,  so I followed the picture as to where to join.   I do like the heart now I have made it,   the pattern is from Free Tatting Patterns -  tatted heart (Valentine) 1 link here

By the time you read this I will be on my way to Rhodes,   I hope you enjoy the scheduled posts I have left for you and until I get back take care.
