My next finished tatting project is this bookmark.

The lip balm is for size comparison; I think this is the first thing I've made that doesn't scream "Tiny! TINY!" whenever I look at it. It's also not completely finished because my parents picked up an iron that they will bring when they visit at the end of May. So the smoothing out and the starching will have to wait until then. (I'm actually excited about getting an iron. I've been getting by without ironing any of my clothes ever since I moved away from home (cheers for student life), but I'm living in a more grown-up way now, and I do have an ironing board, so maybe it's time to level up in this area. But mostly the iron is for my lace.)

I think this bookmark was a little too far beyond my skill level to be fun right now. It was quite fiddly and I actually had to force myself to finish it, which is no good! Now I've gone back to great grandma's book and have done a couple of small pieces in my "rainbow taffy" coloured thread and it's hard to keep from working on it ALL the time. (Okay so maybe the colour plays in as well. I dislike the lime green so much and adore the rainbowy one.)

It's really really purty~!

(Also, I have my own iron, it is separate from the clothes-iron-that-starch-gets-put-in, I got it from freecycle and it's ridiculously awesome. :D I was also teh excite when I got it. )
