Wedding Stuff. Part 5d! Bookmark Marathon!

It has been like running a marathon
but I won!
I received another envelope of hearts....thanks a million Suneeti...that did help a lot.
So I knew what was left to do....of course I did get carried usual!
I kept coming across Treble Clefs and Hearts in unexpected places and finally thought what the heck, I will tat 'till I drop!!
That should probably have read 'till my fingers drop off.
I can speed tat and these hearts I can do in my sleep!
Found that I could tat one heart in about 20 mins, that's if I breathe at the same time!!
and could tat 11 (5.5 pairs!)in an evenings TV watching.....jeepers that 3 hrs 40 mins!!
I must have clocked up an extra 25 pairs...and then my fingers fell off! ouch.

the 4 at the bottom are for ME!
They are a motley assortment, of colours and shapes and sizes......but then so are wedding guests.
I think every one is a winner, thank you so much my tatting gnomes, I couldn't have done it without you....or the designers Jane and Sherry for their inspiration, .
Even the glueing and sleeving took days.
But now I can concentrate on my fun project.


  1. Yahooo! Good for you! All done and lovely at last!
    ♥♥ Fox : )

  2. Wow, what a dizzying number of bookmarks! You've done a magnificent job assembling all those tatted bits into lovely favors. Well done!

  3. They all look wonderful! Congrats! :)

  4. I am just amazed at all the lovely work going into this wedding. Best wishes to the happy couple.

    You are a marvel! ...and everything looks wonderful..what a lucky bride and groom!

  6. That is amazing. YOU are amazing. Wow!

    GUESS WHAT? I thought I'd mislaid my pattern book (Sheep); so had Loyal's reaching apparatus, and came up with a Serape! So, will take a photo of Donacha with it on ~ he wanted it for chilly nights when he stays in his new tent, with his bicycle beside the tent! Are there no end to Lep demands?

    Next thing you know, yours will want to be a part of the wedding party!
    Kudos to you, dear friend bj

    I was just trying to say that I've been looking and looking at all those bookmarks, and it suddenly struck me that they looked like graceful dancers - with their legs floating around in different positions! The left heart seems to be protectively bent over the right hand one, and it's all rather romantic! Hope the wedding day is wonderful - my son gets married two weeks after yours, so we are on the downhill run ourselves!
