What a Mess!!!

Okay, I'll admit it.  I really like this Heart to Heart bookmark pattern by Julie Patterson!
Maybe, it's because it's a quick tat and it makes me feel more accomplished since I don't get much tatting time.  Or... Maybe, just because it's adorable...who knows!
On the left, Carnival and on the Right a new MJ: Wildberries

Wildberries-  I'd have a naming competition for this one but since it's a Messy Jess!-y... I really can't afford to give one away.  Regular colorways that I can repeat will only be playing part in those games. :o)

This is another Messy Jess!-y, which I just can't help but to call Taffilicious because of this photo:

This is thread I showed in my last post, when I did my first heart to heart bookmark. :o)
I only have a few of these skeins, but my plan is to get them in the shop today.
I really love how they turned out and I hope to do something similar again soon!

And some fun photos:

Layla found one my shuttles and has been playing with it all morning.  I also really need to vacuum the rug lol

Livi has now lost 5 teeth!  (3 that are missing now)  She's finding it harder to talk now.  ALSO, we got a letter from the school the other day saying that she's reading at a 1.3 grade level. (She's in kindergarten now) We are so proud of her!  <3
Can you guess what she had for breakfast?  Probably not... she requested a mustard and tomato sandwich.  :o) (hence the mustard on her face)


  1. Congratulations to Livi. That is great news. The colors are lovely.

  2. Gorgeous bookmarks!!! :) And I love that Taffilicious!!!!!!!!!!! :)

  3. Lovely thread, gorgeous bookmarks. Love the names for your threads.
    Well done to Livi on her reading

  4. Atta girl, Livi - keep up the great work! A lifetime of learning starts with reading!

    Love the colors, Jess - scrumptious!
