Bookmark for a friend in Germany

I made this bookmark for a bookmark exchange with a friend in Germany. The pattern is from Kersti and is called Stumpy. It is a very easy pattern and I enjoyed making it.

Below is the bookmark that Karin sent to me from Germany. She said that it is her own pattern, I love the colors of it and it is a very beautiful bookmark. I am so glad to have received it.

Learning new things

Well I decided over the Christmas Holdiay to try my hand at something new. I was very inspiried by some tatting that I had seen on another craft site so I decided to try it out. Well I am now hooked on it also. I went and got a book at my craft store and here are my first three tries. This pattern came out of a needle tatting book called "Learn Needle Tatting" by Barbara Foster.
