Tatting

Thistle Do

I stayed at home again today, this cold has I hope hit the worst patch and my face, shoulders and back are aching. Between naps I managed to complete the designers page on Knots – you can now select an individual designer and see all the patterns we’ve got links to that are theirs. It’s pretty cool if I do say so myself.

The other thing I did was create a thistle bookmark using some soft grey-green and rich purple pearl thread from my stash. I’m quite pleased with the results. The pattern isn’t mine, it’s by Jean Napier-Faeih.
