This Tang Fish bookmark I crocheted a couple of days ago. This is the last of Crochetroo's Fish From The Great Barrier Reef. I used a thread I got from Jackie Lim called Cannon SCO30.
I recieved this Orange Sea Star Pattern from Crochetroo and it is simply lovely and easy to whip out. I used a simple yellow thread on this one.
I made this turtle last night while I was watching TV.
Following that I made this Taipan Snake.
Then I made this Turle Hatchling.
I recently have become interested in art more by brother has a talent for drawing so I asked him to draw me something for Chrsitmas so he drew me this Blue Rose.
For my birthday this month I asked for an oil painting and so I got this at painted with oil. The original is called Work Interrupted by William Bouguereau.
Then From Ebay I got a dragon drawing. I love Sci-Fi so this appealed to me and reminded me of the book Eragon and the dragon Saphira in it.
These next two pictures I picked up from a Changing Hands Bookstore I love the artist Amy Brown and I had recently decided to have a dark green and blue theme in my bathroom so these two went well. Last week I had them custom matted, that was more than I thought it would be and then Michaels had a 40% off frames so I framed them and my dragon picture.

This Blue Tongued Lizard I created for my brother who is in Mexico, my family sent him a care package so I though he might apreciate this more masculine bookmark. This bookmark I created after I created Esta's bookmark for the great bookmark exchange. I want her to be suppriesed so I will not post a picture of that bookmark till after she has recieved it. I used a thread I got from Jackie Lim called Cannon SC009.
This bookmark called an Angel Fish I created in the lunch break between my Human Anatomy & Physiology Lab and Lecture. But it didn't look right till after I ironed it. I used a thread I got from Jackie Lim called Monaco BS88. This is apart of Crochetroo's Fish From The Great Barrier Reef.
This was a challenging bookmark for I crocheted it while watching two little girls one of which is 4 and the other is 2. The challenge was in changing colors though not difficult it was time consuming. I used regular colors: red white and black. I created this after the Angel bookmark. This fish is called a Clown Fish aslo apart of Crochetroo's Fish From The Great Barrier Reef.
This Seahorse bookmark I crocheted last night while I rewatched Taken.
This Seahorse is also apart of Crochetroo's Fish From The Great Barrier Reef. I used a thread I got from Jackie Lim called Anchor KAM16.
