Amarllyis and Cross Bookmarks


This Amaryllis is the last flower for my latest book Tatted Flowers From Bulbs. I have yet to wire and assemble it, but I think you can see the shape appearing. Amazingly, I designed it very quickly, with only one alteration, from my hospital bed. My brain must have been boosted with the blood transfusion I had following my surgery!LOL



These two bookmarks are the ones that I designed whilst I was in hospital. They are similar....variations on a theme. It was just something to do after I had finished the amrylis flower above. Really good therapy.....when I am concentrating on designing I do not concentrate on pain!

Beautiful pieces... I'm not sure I could tat my way through the pain, but I understand what you're saying.

The Amarylis is wonderful. Easily identified.

I've been lurking and praying for your recovery!

Wow, that must have been quite a challenge!

Love the red cross - very historical look to it.

Your Amarylis is beautiful even without being wired. Another book I've just got to have! It's good to see you've been using designing as pain blockers -- that can only benefit you (and all of the rest of us who love your designs!).

Wow, even an operation and hospital stay doesn't slow you down! I love the amaryllis design. The bookmarks are a nice 'architextural' design.

That's a Benedict Cross, Linda!! - just wonderful, bring on the oxygen more often if it helps with pattern designing!

You are amazing! This is lovely as are all you flower designs.

Aren't we all lucky that your creativity continues even during the hospital stay. Glad to read that you are back.

I, too, am not sure I could tat through pain. Ouch!
I'm so glad you are feeling good and on the road to recovery.
Beautiful work!

really beatiful not only the bookmarks but the flowers too.. just a doubt.. do you put the wire at the time you are tatting it or when you finish the flower?
