Christmas Gifts and Motif No. 18/25 - Bell Merry

I tatted and given away a total of 52 tree bookmarks this Christmas, wow, can't believe I actually managed! Received a lot of little gifts too, some very thoughtful ones. Thank you, everyone! I could barely snap a photo with my children's hands all over them!
I sent Vicki another package for Christmas as she sent me twice for the earlier summertime exchange.
Going anti-clockwise from top left corner, there are Christmasy words cut on the pink glitter stockcard using QuicKutz die-cuts, the yellow and black yardages are machine-tatted edgings I bought, a poinsettia motif tatted with Olympus 40 thread (pattern from a Japanese book) mounted on an organza bag, a Singapore Flyer postcard, my tree bookmark tatted with Aida 10 thread, and Bell Merry - a new bell motif tatted with Flora 20 thread. It's not difficult to guess why the name, right ? This will be Motif No. 18/25.
Will post what I sent to Pamela for the Secret Santa Exchange once I find the photos, and in the meantime, waiting for mine to come.

Fun Christmas gifts! Love the bell motif. I can't quite tell from the post if you designed it or not as you don't say. I guess you did? Anyway, it's lovely! You sure did a LOT of tatted trees! Wow! 53 bookmarks! That is amazing! Hope your holidays have been very Merry! :)

Oh, I should have scrolled down sooner! I kept admiring that bell and wondering if it was your pattern and yes it is! I really like it!

My sister, daughter and I decided we would start making handmade gifts early this year and I plan to stockpile some of those tree bookmarks for next year.

Look at all the good stuff! How very nice. 52 trees! You must see them in your sleep now. Your Bell Merry is beautiful and the poinsettia is to die for. Just stunning. Have a great New Year 2009!
