Group of Bookmarks 14/25 Motif challenge



Hi,

This is the last scheduled post,  today we are travelling back from Cyprus arriving late tonight,   
Today I have a few bookmarks for you,  I tried to find out what the collective word would be for a group of them,  and I could not find anything,  so I am calling them a group.
The first one at the top is the Spiral Bookmark in white and Tropical Punch.    The second one is Kerstis Floral Tatted bookmark in Pink Parade,   both are Lizbeth threads no 20. Both are my favorites and lovely to tat. 
This bookmark is the Rose and Butterfly by Jeanne Lugart,   the thread is rather old by coats and I have no idea how old or what the number is,  I asked Vernon is pick out a different colour for me out of the draw where I keep my thread,  and this is what he choose.
Now he knows how much thread I have,  but a tatter can never had too much can she????
This pattern needs a split chain at the bottom,  I think I did a good job on that,  and a Josephine chain yes well that was something that needed a bit of refreshing last time I did one of those it looked a mess but thanks to Lady Shuttle maker link to her blog.  She had a wonderful piece on her blog explaining how to do it,  I did it first time and I think it looks good.   I will be doing them again now I have the trick in making them.   Yes my time while I was ill has been a learning curve and re-freshing up on what I found hard to do.  I think I told you that before. See I have not wasted my time all together.

I look forward to seeing you all soon,   if you did not get a comment on your blogs while I was away sorry but I will try and visit you all and catch up on what's new.
Until we meet again take care
                      Hugs
                  Margaret
