Last Friday

Cheryl sent in a whole collection of foxy bookmarks.  Thought you’d like to see them so here they are!!!.

This is what she had to say.

 I finally got some foxes made. I've learned to use larger beads for eyes and the nose. They give them more life.”

Another fox has arrived

Well I’m more than delighted to have another new fox drop into my inbox today. This is from Arlene who says

105 ” Hi,
I happily stumbled onto your blog the day you said: I’m 100. I thought : Wow!! This person is 100 and has their own blog. I went onto discover that you had 100 completed fox bookmarks sent to you. Amazing!
I loved your pattern and set to creating my own fox bookmark. I needle tat and had a few problems with the last outline of the head, but had so much tatting my fox.
I used:
a size 5 needle, 
light colored thread: Aunt Lydias Size 10, color copper mist
dark colored thread: DMC Cebelia, unknown color

Ha, ha, Arlene - I do have a slightly wacky sense of humour. Please forgive me. I’m only 77 in real life although some days I feel like 100 like most people!! Thanks for taking part in the TIAS.

March 12th

Yvonne has arrived now with her foxy bookmark. That makes 104 which is truly amazing. She says

104.    "Hi Jane, because we only opened up in February and then we had another lockdown, we are a bit late in completing our bookmarks. But we thoroughly enjoyed it. Some guesses were , an aeroplane, an insect and various other animals. We can’t wait for the next one. Thanks again, Yvonne 
This is the first book mark completed in my class. Thanks for doing it we all enjoy it!
Regards, Yvonne "

Another foxy bookmark!

103.    To get to this number of a hindered and three Elain has sent in her bookmark. This is what she says

“Here is my fox. He is a hot mess but as a beginner I am still proud of him. I really enjoyed this and even though it doesn't look like it I learned a lot. Before this I was intimidated by split ring now I enjoy then. 
I plan to try some of the past Tat and See and continue to improve. Thanks so much for doing these. Elaine”

Well Elaine I must say that as a beginner and not knowing what you were making I think you’ve done a remarkable job on your bookmark. It’s not easy when you know what you’re making and is almost impossible when you don’t!!! Congratulations.
