The Aerlit Shuttles are in and ready for you to order at Handy Hands.
Several days ago I posted a sneak peek here.
The gift has now been received, so I can show you the whole thing.
The recipient is a published author whose book I have read. I have her blog listed in the right hand column Green Girl in Wisconsin.
This is her book
It involves a young gal looking to spice up her life and add to her income by becoming a home party hostess. A very different concept then any other book I have read. It was a fun read. I recommend it. You can buy a copy from the University of Wisconsin Press
I enjoyed her book and decided to make her a bookmark.
This is what I came up with
The variegated thread is Manuela size 20 color 204. The green is Lizbeth size 20 color 684.
Since this pattern reminds me of a flowering vine, I had originally thought to do some of the vine in spiral stitch, but that proved not be look very good, so I cut that all off and did the pattern the way Jane wrote it, except for the tail. That I did do in spiral stitch and added some occasional small rings to simulate leaves.
Now back to the Christmas Snowflakes and maybe if I am lucky, some more on the Tat-A-Long Lace Mat from Jon’s Blog. Have you looked at the Lace Mats that have been finished? Jon has a page of all the Lace Mats that have been finished, and at the end of the year she is going to hold a poll of the best. There is still time to get a Lace Mat started and finished ( I hope).
