It Feels Good to Be Tatting Again

It's amazing what a few months away from tatting does. I've really missed it and now that I'm starting up again, I have so many new patterns to try and beautiful thread to use that I don't know where to begin.

I figured I would start with some simple motifs and increase in complexity as I get back into my comfort zone.

The first thing I chose was a needle tatted bookmark from Roger's Needletatting Proboard forum.

The instructions were fantastic and it worked up very quickly with a butterfly at one end and a clover at the opposite end.
