Bookmark for Mar 08 Round Robin

With the intention to come up with a floral bookmark for Victoria (Vicki) for the March International Round Robin, I did the orchid and tulip. But I wanted to give it another try and hit on the periwinkle flower while looking at our coins. Did a bit of history search, this is a brief info on the coins - Singapore’s 2nd (current) series of circulating coins bear the Flora theme featuring plants and flowers, aimed at enhancing the city’s image as a garden city. The $1 coin has a big periwinkle in the center, and surrounded by smaller ones.

Finally, here’s the completed bookmark I tatted for Vicki. Well, although I tatted with periwinkles in mind, I’m not sure if the flowers look sufficiently like periwinkles such that people can tell.

What a beautiful bookmark! Some day I hope to be able to tat designs that I think up, like you do. I guess I'd need to be able to think up a design first, which could be a problem!

Thanks! Well, it took me 9 years before I take the step forward. But then, I didn't have much time to tat with all the other commitments in life and there are no shortage of wonderful patterns out there. Just hope I can keep up with my own expectations - I'm thinking up of 3 animals now. Hope to finish at least 2 for April, one of which for the Apr Round Robin.

That is gorgeous. I think you did a great job on the shape of the periwinkle flower. Very well done someone is very, very lucky, indeed, to get that bookmark.

I LOVE the bookmark! They definitely look like periwinkles although I wouldn't care if they didn't - they're beautiful. I hope you are able to write up a pattern - I would love to try this one. I am new at tatting but having a great time!
