New thread, Book and tatting!

Here it is ( it can a little bit ago) Jon's new book! And on the same day I got another surprise- Thread from Yarnplayer( Marilee)! This is just a picture of the three colors I got,but I got several different sizes! My fav is 'Sugar Maple', but there is 'Summer Trail' and 'Lola'. SOOOO
I started tatting little things( the butterflies are actually Lizabeth thread) and the really small triple ring is in 'Sugar Maple'. But that's not all-

I had to try one of Jon's patterns from her book 'Tatting With Rings'. As you can tell from 1st pic ,Jon sent some rings to practice with. No I haven't hid my ends yet(just lazy on my part), and I WON'T point out the mistakes. This is done in size 20 of Marilee's 'Sugar Maple' and the large ring. It is about 2 1/2 inches across and went fairly quickly.( Pattern is 'Melur')

I like how it turned out. I'm thinking of single shuttle split rings and make a 'tail' so I can make it a bookmark. Or maybe turn it into a tree ornament. Well it is a thought,but there are MORE fun patterns to try and I DO have so many new color to choose from! And you know what they say 'practise makes perfect!' Or as I like to say keep trying until you get it right! Ta Ta for now and happy tatting!

That book looks like it has very cool, unique ideas! I like the motif that you finished. The little butterflies are so pretty, too!
