Candle Bookmark (Motif #15/25)

My sister told me she wanted a bookmark.  She chose "Candle" by Dee Powell from "Tatted Bookmarks Needle & Shuttle" edited by Barbara Foster.  For thread, she picked Country Side (117) and the corresponding Blue Med (651), bot LizBeth size 20. 

It needs some serious blocking, LOL.  It's been done for days... not sure why I didn't post it before now. 

So, my notes on this bookmark:

-This isn't my least favorite pattern from the book, but I did scrunch my nose at it... It just doesn't appeal to me.
-It tats up easily enough.  This is also the first time I've managed to be successful with chain after chain --something that just seems like it would be so much easier with shuttle.
-At least the pretty colors made me like it a little bit more! LOL.

Well, hope all it tatting up well for all of you out their in TatLand! :-*
