Snow Day - Part Two

I don't have any snow pictures to show, as it was way too cold for me to stay outside for long. I'll try to get some ice pictures on the way home from work tomorrow, if I'm even able to get out of the driveway!

I spent most of the day tatting, but had to put it away for a little bit because of getting a headache. I did manage to finish two projects, as seen below:

These are the Overlapping Chains Bookmark and the Featherline Snowflake, both by Jon. However, now that I see it on the computer, you can't really see the snowflake all that well..

That's better.

I made a few mistakes near the end and didn't notice until I had already steam blocked.See the top most arm? There is a missing ring up there...

And then the bookmark. I know it's small, but it was my first time doing the pattern(and I still managed to make a mistake around the time my dad got home), but it's not that noticeable, is it?

And the reason its so small?

Mass markets fit into my purse so much easier than the full versions!

Both were tatted in Lizbeth size 20, in Dusty Rose Lt, Spring Garden, Antique Violet, and Boysenberry Dk.

I have more on my "to tatt" list, so keep an eye out!

Happy tatting! ^^

Your bookmark colors are so vibrant, what a great color combination for this pattern. Your snowflake is pretty too!
I haven't seen these patterns before. Nice job on both!

This bookmark is another of Jon's patterns on my 'to do' list, and here in these colors it's just gorgeous! It is not a 'small' bookmark to me!
The attractive snowflake looks just fine in the first photo, with a double click on the photo. The color is pretty on it, also!

Hope you're feeling better! It still seems weird that you're having so much snow in Georgia!

Carol - Thanks! I loved these colors as soon as I saw them, and finally found something to tie all three together.

God's Kid - Thanks! ^^

Kathy - It has been on mine for the longest time. It was a bit fiddly, but eventually (after halfway through round 2) it all straightened out. And I am feeling better -- just gotta work on the congestion that is keeping my voice from sounding normal!

Thanks again, ladies! ^^
