Gone so long!

My Goodness it's been a while! I'm sorry I haven't been on here more but our current version of Mozilla FireFox is having issues with Blogger : / Grr!


As for that special project here it is! It's the Black magic bookmark from Mary Konior. I used two shuttles; one with the black and the other had the color on it. For as pretty as it is, it was a LOT of work! I had to empty my color shuttle each time to switch colors! But I think the effect in the end is pretty cool. I just love the black with bright colors! Time for another doily maybe......

But I liked the pattern so much I made another one :) This one is in the Lizbeth 40 'Boysenberry.'








Other then these projects, I've been pretty busy with work and being outside gardening. I'm planning on finishing a HUGE white doily this summer. My goal is to be done with it before school starts up again at the end of August...can I 'git 'r' gone?' I hope so ;)
Blessings to ya'll!

The effect looks worth the trouble. It reminds me of stained glass!

Beautiful effect with the colors!! Kind of a 'stained glass' effect! I never would have thought of doing that. The effort was worth it!

I agree the bookmark is so effective in black and different colours.

Pretty bookmarks Allison, the black one especially.

I'm having trouble with FireFox 4 wanting to close willy-nilly while in blogger at least at home. at Work doesn't seem to be as much an issue.

These two Black Magic bookmarks leave me breathless! They are so beautiful. Are you sure you can go back to all - white after such an exciting foray down the colorful garden path?

The colors are so nice contrasting the black! I like (:

Hi Allison! Your Rainbow-Black Magic bookmark is great! It made me gasp when I saw the thumbnail on someone else's blog roll, and I wanted to let you know how much I like it.

Your tatting is so beautiful! Now I want to learn. :) But anyway, gorgeous, gorgeous, gorgeous!

Thanks everyone for your comments! I love tatting with black and colors! It's exactly like stained glass! Isdihara, I'll have to muscle through working with white, but secretly I already have another stained glass idea :) hehe! Thanks everyone!
