It's beautiful!!!!   So I would love to order it to give for Christmas.   Can you also do it in colors below?
They are VERY Scottish...Whatever you think is best.   If you can do them---here is what I need.

 4 Male---4 diff SOLID colors (in same family, so maybe 1 GREEN, 1 RED, 1 BLACK, 1 YELLOW
 1 female- BLUE  (she loves blue!)

I am including a picture of their Tartan so you can get a general idea of the shades
Let me know if you need money ahead of time!  The light color is gray, not white.  I wonder
if they make varigated thread with these colors?   hmmmmm...
Thanks!

GREAT!! I can't wait to get started!


Thanks, halo. Elise inspired the idea! She has always been my inspiration! Little did I know that she would inspire a tatted creation!!

Strange things are happening! I was uploading some pictures of flowers from my camera this morning. As I was going through them, I was surprised to see this scan of the bookmark. The scanner wasn't working, remember? Where did that come from? That was a surprise!!
Anyway, lucky me. My new scanner came in yesterday, and clever Daughter will be installing it for me today. Wish me luck with it.
Here's a better scan of the bookmark in white. This one was a trial prototype. I'm working on the colored one, which will be a little "new and improved."
