Valentine Bookmark

In honor of Valentine's Day, my 7th motif is a bookmark from the pattern 'Hearts', by Dee Powell from the book Tatted Bookmarks from Handy Hands.   This pattern was easy to work - and I really do enjoy making bookmarks since they make great gifts to include in a card. 

The thread is Gram's Variegated, Cebelia size 30 - my very first HDT  (hand dyed thread) from Krystledawne.  I didn't expect the thread variegation to be so pretty - but I really love this one!  This second picture shows the true color better - it's varied pinks, not red.    This thread is very nice to tat with - and I like how I can see my stitches.  Is this the thread, or is it that my tatting is improving?

Happy Valentine's Day.  May your heart be happy and full of love today!
