Marking time

I've been tatting all week and have very little to show for it.  Okay, I've been tatting but only for short stretches at a time.  That I accomplished anything is wonderful!

I've made two simple bookmarks.   One is made with Lizbeth # 166 Pink Cocoa in size 40. I've had it on my shuttles for doing the zipper pulls and was trying to work it off.  It didn't look like there was that much on them!  But it's size 40 and I've been working a lot with size 20 so I was fooled into thinking it was almost gone.

The other one is made with Oren Bayan Perele cotton size 8 in the brown-to-tan variegated and a deep green also in size 8 Perele cotton by Oren Bayan.  I think it would make a lovely gift to a man as it's in woodsy colors, kind of manly.

 It seems we know a lot of people graduating from either college or high school.  I'm glad bookmarks work up quickly and fit well into cards :-)  I've been working a bit on Mother's Day gifts as well as graduation gifts and several birthday gifts.  Now if I can just make progress on them!

I haven't even touched my vest this week.  Still thinking about it though.
