I'm doomed

Help! Someone has cast Black Magic on me. Not once, not twice but three times! With just a mere glance, I was doomed. It all started when I was googling the net for a tatted bookmark pattern and then, lo, I was spellbound by the mere sight of it. For a few days I fought it until I could fight no more. Succumbed to it I did by hitting the "Buy" button. Gotcha!

I was referring to this book by Mary Konior known as Tatting with Visual Patterns. I bought it for just this one pattern, Black Magic. I had tatted it thrice and the last time was for an exchange organised by ShuttlesandNeedles (SNN) known as Tatted Bookmark Exchange. I just hope my partner, Angie, will fall for it.

In return, Angie has tatted me two bookmarks. The green one known as The Crazy-Daisy-Eight Split Ring is meant for this exchange. The variegated one known as The Honey Comb Split Ring is a bonus. Split ring was a technique she learnt from Faizon, our sifu, at our last meet-up in February 2007 and she has put them to practise as evidenced from the pic below. It sure is hard to select which one I like better for I like both and I'm grinning from ear to ear as I've gotten two bookmarks in exchange for one.

Hi June!
How I admire your tatting! I gave it a try a few times and just couldn't get the hang of it. I'm trying to convince my oldest dd to learn so she can supply me with trim for the smocked dresses I like to sew now and then, lol!
