Wonderful!! My first attempt wasn't successful, but after looking closer at the picture base 3 turned out great. Can't wait to try the rest!!

Absolutely exquisite work, only marred for me, by indifferent instructions.

There is no list of abbreviations, and I had to think hard when doing a leaf for what bl might be, before settling on 'back loop'

I'm also at a loss to understand on the flowers, how you can tighten a five chain starting ring; if that were possible, there would have been no need for the 'magic ring' to be invented

I found Lace Base 2 particularly muddling, and ended up combining the bits of the instructions I could follow, with working from the photograph and drawing on my long experience.

I realize that possibly, part of my problem may be due to the difference in American and English terminology, so I shall continue with these beautiful bookmarks, just using Lace Base 1.
Incidentally, I had no problem working with the Floss.

Finally, a couple of the ladies in my Craft Group, thought - and I did agree with them - that two layers (base plus flower) were too thick to put in a book, so I make the chain cord longer, to drape the flowers over the closed book.

Clearly written pattern, that is easy to follow.
I have made bookmark 1 and 3 so far. Bookmark Base 2 comes in 2 sizes. (2-3 hours each)

The flowers and leaves giving endless design to the Bases no two Bookmarks will be the same unless you make them to match. (Flowers can be made with oddments of yarn)

I made the Bookmarks using DK yarn, to make sure that I understood the patterns first, they have turned out beautiful and am looking forward to attempting these with crochet thread and embroidery floss knowing they will look exquisite.
