Scan-happy... :-)

I got new ink today! Yay!  (It's the off-market stuff... I used points from Swagbucks and got a Amazon card, so I figured I"d take my chances on this since it was only going to cost me a dollar for 6 cartridges).  Anywho, this means I can scan again!!!  It also kind of made me realize that I didn't have much to scan... :-/


Monday, my beloved UPS man showed up with new threads and new books from Handy Hands!  Oh, how I love that man -always brings me packages and doesn't nag or expect dinner!  Perfect! :-)  One of the books is Celtic Tatting Knots and Patterns by Rozella Linden. 


I tried my luck with the Celtic Cross Bookmark:

I think I should have gone with my original plan for black on the outer round, but I'm happy to just have completed it!  :-)  It scared me, LOL.  The first round is a ring of split rings that starts with a regular ring and then cut and tie.  There's a note, however that says advanced tatters could just do a split ring there too... So I did!  Don't I realize that I'm not advanced?  LOL.  I think I made the picots too big --and the space after closing that initial SR was definitely funky, but it was my first time, so I'm not bothered. ;-)  On my cross, you might also notice that little diamond-shape in the center in the first photo... yeah... that's supposed to be round.  Ooops... *blushes*


Then I decided to do a scan of the full bracelet since my photograph was blurry:


And, finally, a bookmark.  "Wave" by Sandy Scales from Tatted Bookmarks edited by Barbara Foster, done it LizBeth's Country Side in size 20. :-)


I also tatted a snowflake but, by golly that thing is fiddly!  I need to learn to make bigger picots once in a while!  It's definitely not suitable for viewing without being blocked!!!


Well, hope all is well with you and yours!  


Love to all,
Stephanie Grace
