Well I was going to put the Mary Konior book away with my other tatting books, then I thought this isn't right. I've waited all this time to get my greedy little hands on the book, and so putting it away on the shelf and ignoring it for a week, a month or even two, just didn't seem right. So I made this bookmark which in the book is called "Black Magic" because it was obviously tatted in black. However, decided it would look good in variegated cotton and thanks very much to Sue Anna who so kindly sent me the stardate cotton, the end result is very pleasing.
The piece of wood you saw in my previous post seemed to get some of you guessing, unfortunately you were all wrong! But thanks for trying, so that you can have one last stab at it, here is another picture with the log cut in half by the chain saw, to help you I have taken the photograph with a plant hanging over the wood, which should remind you of Christmas.
You can see that it is a very pale wood, almost white and
hopefully will make some lovely shuttles in time for Christmas!
