Oh my stars!

This is a picture of my first idea for my friends book marker. It is a star pattern from 'TATTING Patterns & Designs by Blomqvist & Persson. It is done in Lizbeth 'Raspberry'. After tatting it , I realized it made a nice something but was too big for what I wanted to do. So it goes in the group of things that are waiting to be made into something else. I'm sure NO ONE has one of those piles.
Below is the book marker I finally made( and settled on), 'Black Widow' by Mary Konoir in 'Marble' Lizbeth thread. This book marker was about 2" across and 8" or 9" long. Good size so you don't lose it in the book!

Ok I know I posted the book marker earlier, but I like it so much I did it again! On the star, I think I might make several more and join either so it made a square or did it on the angle. But till now there are other projects calling me to work on them-so it will have to wait. :)

The raspberry shade of the star is pretty. I too, have one of THOSE piles, and it seems to be growing everyday, LOL.

There are many lovely motif in the Blomqvist & Persson book. In fact that is the first tatting book that I bought.
