Happy St. Paddies Day

The lower half of the Shamrock Bookmark pattern is from Anna Burda Magazine and redesigned by Jane Eborall. Jane has made it easier with the split ring. A good pattern to learn Split rings because there is only one in the center!        The top half is a pattern from Susan Taliaferro. I omitted the last round and should have tatted it with dark green like the one below. However an emerald gem and green ribbons dresses it up.
For the tassels below I tatted the center shamrock, chain 20, S/R 6, chain 10 and joined, repeat for the other side.
 To the side of the shamrock above I  cross stitched a clover on soft, linen material. These made nice place mats. 
Have a Great Saint Patrick's Day!

Happy St. Patrick Day Linda, Your tatted bookmark is fantastic. It is raining and the snow is melting and more crocuses are blooming. Happy Days. Hugs Judy
