A new project

I wanted to design a new bookmark. Well, that's not strictly true although it's sort of!!! That doesn't make sense so let me explain.

I was making the last starry button bracelet when it occurred to me that if I took the buttons out then it would be halfway to becoming a bookmark. 

Oh, silly, silly me. Life isn't that easy and this project certainly proved that a 'quick conversion' in tatting doesn't necessarily work.

I guessed at the stitch count and that didn't work very well.  The outer part of the SCMR's was fine but getting the 'button' part the right size proved a right royal battle!!

I'll now show you the first bookmark!!!  This will be improved on - believe me!

While I will look forward to your future tweaks, I like this bookmark exactly the way it is :-)

It's a lovely conversion! Mary Corbet had a recent post saying that 'quick projects' often turn out to be much less quick than we expect.

I love it - I love anything in these colours, but the bookmark looks good enough to me!

It looks nice as it is, so I'm wondering what changes tweaking will bring!

This bookmark looks like it would be fun to do! A very clever design!

And I can't believe how far along you are on the doily!

I actually prefer this version than the blue one.
