The Aerlit Shuttles are in and ready for you to order at Handy Hands.
Several days ago I posted a sneak peek here.
The gift has now been received, so I can show you the whole thing.
The recipient is a published author whose book I have read. I have her blog listed in the right hand column Green Girl in Wisconsin.
This is her book
University of Wisconsin Press
I enjoyed her book and decided to make her a bookmark.
This is what I came up with
The pattern is Jane Eborall's Flowery SCMR Bookmark. Click here to download the pattern pdf. Here is the link to Jane's pattern pages with so many, many patterns
Since this pattern reminds me of a flowering vine, I had originally thought to do some of the vine in spiral stitch, but that proved not be look very good, so I cut that all off and did the pattern the way Jane wrote it, except for the tail. That I did do in spiral stitch and added some occasional small rings to simulate leaves.
Now back to the Christmas Snowflakes and maybe if I am lucky, some more on the Tat-A-Long Lace Mat from Jon's Blog. Have you looked at the Lace Mats that have been finished? Jon has a page of all the Lace Mats that have been finished, and at the end of the year she is going to hold a poll of the best. There is still time to get a Lace Mat started and finished ( I hope).
