I usually keep several tatted bookmarks on hand for small gifts to go inside cards. These are for condolences, just-because, (forgotten) birthdays, or other special occasions. Recently I’ve found I don’t have any bookmarks made. Oops, I need to get busy!
I made my ‘Branson’ bookmark in Lizbeth Caribbean size 20. This one is easy to do while a passenger in the car on the way to work. I already had one shuttle which needed to be emptied so I can count it as finishing up a project, right?
I found a partially done bookmark to work on next. The pattern is from one of my Alaska bookmarks. The picture makes it look like a variegated thread though it is not. Unfortunately, I lost the ball of the thread for this. I’m almost done but both shuttles are too low on thread to finish. Back in the UFO (Un-Finished Object) drawer.
I told myself I would work on UFOs before starting new projects. But I really need to stock up on bookmarks. Maybe I have another unfinished bookmark somewhere. I’ll have to look. If not, I’ll just have to start another project and finish it so as not to add to the UFOs.
The ‘Branson’ bookmark pattern can be found on my Pattern Page. I have not written out the Alaska bookmark.
