COLOR! nuntium duodeduocesimum quartum

I've been making lots of snowflakes- white, white, white. Last week I decided to take all the Lizbeth thread out of those nasty, crinkly bags and put them in softer ziploc bags, plus they open more easily. I was delighted by my variegated threads and decided to make heart bookmarks with each one. I did most of them in about 4 days- crazy but my girl is playing basketball so that gives me some time.

This is my little go-to pattern from Vicki Clarke called Simple Heart.  Wish I'd thought to watch this video from Frivole again before doing them though.  Blipless join!!

But Diane's got me thinking about trying the Spinning Wheel glass mat. I don't think I'd do one a week but maybe one by Friday.  Anyone want to join me?  Diane says about 15 yards per shuttle will do it.

  1. Love, love, love those hearts! I'm going to get you to teach me how to make those tassels when I retire. I do plan to visit Minnesota once in a while!

  2. P.S. - No pressure, but I'm 2/3 of the way through my next Spinning Wheel! :-)

  5. Wonderful bookmarks - love all that color! I'll skip the spinning glass mat this time - my tatting mojo is on vacation at the moment.

  6. Gosh what an array of colourful bookmarks, lovely pattern I don't think I have seen this one before. Thanks for sharing the pattern
    I was thinking of trying the spinning mat I have a few things to do first but I have the book so it's just a question of getting it out and doing it. So perhaps I will join you
