I didn't have a blog then, but Jane Eborall wrote about it on her blog and kindly put the pattern on her Guest Designer page. It proved to be hugely popular!
I joined In Tatters recently and put my patterns up on that site. Grace Tan saw the bookmark pattern there and adapted it to make the cross you can see in the top picture. Very clever, and evolution at its best! You can find a link to Grace's pattern on the right of this page.
I made this cross for Annika, my youngest granddaughter, who is to be christened soon.
What a lovely story! - and yes, your bookmark pattern has really taken off, I think the expression is that it's "gone viral"- in Jane's beloved "Tatland" at least!ReplyDelete
What a wonderful cross!!! :)ReplyDelete
I loved this bookmark! Can't wait to try the cross! I love the Internet for collaborative efforts, so exciting!ReplyDelete
Oh, I like that. I have 2 grauation gifts to get done this week. Perfect. Thanks for sharing. Now I know why I was dithering yesterday and not getting at the tatting I should have done. I was waiting for this pattern. ThanksReplyDelete
Yay! Now I know the whole story! :-)ReplyDelete
Thank you for sharing. The braid is so interesting + would be fun to tat.ReplyDelete
Its a treat following your work, specially with tatting.Thank you for sharing! I am posting a comment on this page, as I am particularly fascinated by the bookmarks and the lace braids in the photograph from Anna Burda magazine. While thanking you for the pattern of the leaf braid, I was wondering if you could share the instructions of the magazine ( i can see part of it)? There are a couple of things I am curious about, and the complete instructions would help. Thanks! ....Vandana Gupta, from India.
I'll have to find it! I'll come back to you.Delete
Ok, I've put the whole photo in another post called 'Anna Braids', hope that helps!Delete
