I had big plans to make four of these motifs and join them together as a small mat - but I knew I wouldn't have enough thread before I even finished the second one. I think that's the only time that has ever happened - and no way to readily get more. So they became coasters! I wanted to put them in an acrylic base but the ones I had (bought at a tat day somewhere once) were octagonal and the squares were too big to fit in.

Remember edging #2 in the last post? Well, it became a bookmark. I had some rickrack that matched beautifully and I couldn't resist threading it through the chains.

I decided to make a triangular goodie bag and decorate it with angels, since Tami's business is called Angelic Creations. One of the angels remains here, lopsided at the skirt because I missed making an extra ring. LOL! I really had too many distractions going on. There is chocolate and beads inside and oh pooh...I just remembered I meant to put in a "big eye" beading needle. Sorry Tami!

I also realized I forgot to scan the shuttle but that's okay. I did have fun making everything but started feeling guilty that it was taking me so long so I kind of rushed to get it all sent off.


  1. Oh, I love that bag it is so cool with it's triangular shape and the lovely tatted angel motifs on the three "leaves" of it. Lucky Tammy!

  2. You have been busy! Nice work.

  3. I love everything! The bookmark is adorable... I wonder why I like bookmarks so much? ; )
