The Summer Fun bookmark progresses with motif #2 nearly complete. Tatted in two colors, size 20 Lizbeth #104 and #642, each motif measures 2 by 2 inches (5.1 by 5.1 centimeters). Three of these joined in a row would make a lovely bookmark. I also think this motif begs for bling.
Two doodles tatted in Lizbeth size 40, color #100 Autumn Leaves, are added for perspective.
This week I joined Fox's thread exchange and sent off (so far) three envelopes with thread samples. It is fun to browse the thread offerings of other tatters and swap for something you like!

Barbara Foster sent me this photo of a square motif tatted in her soon-to-be-released Lizbeth size 80. This color is #122 Caribbean. What a coincidence! It is the same motif I have started but not yet finished. So now I can show you something a bit larger than the snippets from last week's post.
Finished up the treble clefs I was tatting for a friend's wedding and have the mailing envelope ready to drop off with postie. These clefs have spoiled me rotten! No hiding ends at the beginning. No CTM. Just measure off roughly 32-34 cm. from shuttle 1 and tat the first ring. Then I would tie on shuttle two to the dangling thread and voila! I was ready to tat through to the final ring. A quick, instant gratification project with minimal thread ends to hide....*sigh*
No progress on the county fair doily. The tatting fugue seems to have passed (Hope I haven't just jinx myself.) so it may be safe to start row 5.
