I made this bookmark called Filigree from Christmas Angels and Other Tatting Patterns by Monica Hahn for my daughter Shannon who is away at university so she can keep track of where she is reading and be reminded each day that her Dad loves her. It is made from Oren Bayan Perle 12 in colours 864 and 865 with a burgundy eyelet ribbon woven through the middle. I think it will make a nice surprise for her when she receives it in the mail.

I'm sure this lovely bookmark will remind your daughter of how much you love and miss her. Thanks for sharing!

She's a lucky girl! Hope she shows it to her friends, who will then wonder how it was made, get interested, and then maybe there will be some more new tatters!

Hi Clyde's daughter! It is good to hear that you know how awesome he is. We all think so. I am his friend Laura in Alabama (tattycat) and he is a very good friend to me. You were very blessed to have been born his daughter. God smiled on you, and on all of us who are his friends.
