3 more for my 25-motif challenge--5, 6, & 7
The bookmark with the tail is from Mary Maynard's "Rings of Flowers". I used size 70 thread, color #18A. It is flower # 57. I was fascinated by the way the inner petals lay on top of the outer ones. Turns out that it was an easy exercise.
I wanted to give a flower to a friend who was having a 90th birthday, but didn't finish till a week too late. So I bought her a real one. This is from Linda Davies" "Summer Collection of Tatted Flowers". It is the purple allium. A florist told me they come in all shades of purple. This shade seemed to fit the lady. I used DMC size 20, color #210.
The next bookmark satisfied my determination to do a project with clunies. The pattern is from "Simple Angel Lesson Series Part 5 - Bookmarks/Edging by Sabina Carden-Madden. It was a real challenge and some of the clunies show that I'm an amateur. Oh well, i have something i'm fairly proud of doing. The thread is Lizbeth size 20, color #121.
