This second bookmark is one I just finished, in fact it's still a little damp from the spray starch. It also needs a tassle I think. It is described as "Two colored bookmark adapted from edging in Tatting Doilies & Edgings, edited by Rita Weiss. Edging #1 on page 23." I need to see if I can't go back and find the person who posted it, I can't figure out how to get to her page again, so if it's yours or you know whose it is, let me know! Anyway, I love it too, and I think I'm feeling more confident. I got a new Iris Niebach book in the mail today, "tatted doilies" and I'm just mesmerised! I might just give one a try. New shuttles too! They are the "sew mate" clear ones from Handy Hands. I love that they are clear and you can see the amount of thread left. They are a bit bigger than my clovers. I've decided to pretty much chuck my bobbin shuttles, never had good luck with them. If anyone wants them, there are 3 of the white susan bates "aero" type with black bobbins, if you'd like to trade something let me know! I have two metal ones I'll never use either.
UPDATE!-----I found her! the pattern for the spiral bookmark belongs to-Regina A. Brummett. here is her lovely blog! http://threadsofatattinggoddess.blogspot.com/ Thank you
