Cro-tating bookmarks

Since this can be classified as crochet and tat (of sorts), I'll post this to both my crocheting and my tatting blogs.

I hadn't done any cro-tatting in quit an age. But, looking at my various craft implements, I was drawn to my cro-hook. So, looking up some of the online patterns (as my cro-tatting patterns are buried somewhere), I found a 'beginners' pattern for tatted bookmarks. Following this pattern-even using the same shade of red-I completed the pattern without any complications; only to decide that this was just too little. So, I changed the pattern just a bit and made it a bit wideer and longer. Ahhhh! Smiles all around.

As soon as I get a photo taken, I'll post it here.

Has anybody done any cro-tatting lately? I haven't done any for a while but, last night I pulled out one of my cro-hooks and made a couple of bookmarkers. Now, I'm working on designing one that's heartshaped and made in a size #10 cotton. I'll post these as soon as I get some pictures taken.
