...sort of how I feel!
That is the name of Julie Patterson's bookmark pattern:
I really love the shape of this. And the thread I used pleases me as well It is tatted in #40 yellow Lizbeth and LadyShuttlemaker's 'Magnolia,' which is a fabulous colourway. Way to go, Sherry!
It is also a very relaxing tat - which is very good for me right now.
I have been giving away tatting left and right, all over the place, wherever I have meetings about mum's estate. Women ( I have been dealing only with women, no sexism intended - these are the people who happen to be my contacts in the various institutions!) love the little motifs and seem interested in investigating tat-ology, which I am not at all shy about talking about. I push the blog on anyone who will listen! Tatting rocks!!!!
I am going to write up my pattern for 'Athalia' - my mum's name. Last year after I designed the Misha Heart I did this one as well, and also another called 'Evelyn,' (My Gram's name) which I shall write up next.
I shall post 'Athalia' under Free Patterns at the top of the blog as soon as it is written up. Mum would like that indeed.
