I recently joined a tatting group on Facebook, and we're doing a project a month TAL. The project for the month of June was a bookmark. I chose Julie Patterson's Hearts and Flower Cross Bookmark. Part of the reason I chose it was so that I could learn to make split rings. I also got a good deal of practice hiding thread ends, since my thread broke several times. Using a thread conditioner helped keep the thread from breaking so often. The thread is size 50 Omega. The pattern was easy to follow, and I will probably try it again.
