Bookmarks, Dragonflies and Tatting Fun

Ruth has posted an Easter celebration cross which has butterflies at the ends of the arms. Very clever! The pattern has been included in the Tatting Pattern Calendar. Thanks to Ruth we've had 3 months on wonderful patterns to work with. She'll be gone for a bit so the April patterns may come in chunks as she gets access to a computer for uploading.
Mark has completed his Gaillardia bookmark and it's absolutely stunning. I don't have enough fingers and toes to keep all those shuttles straight for this one. While you're taking a look at it, don't forget to check out all the pictures of the costumes he, and his wife Kim, did for 'Oliver', the high school play. In addition to tatting this challenging piece, and making costumes, Mark was also the official photographer.
Laura has been practicing on some mignonette tatting. I love how lacy and fast mignonette is.

Eliz is working on the Cecelia doily and figures that it will take 48 motives to complete it and she's already in the middle of #9. It won't be too long until it's done. Will it need an outer edging to pull it all together? A little picture play gives a rough idea how the pieces fit together. Pretty.
Melissa didn't get her information on dragonfly patterns fast enough, so she created her own. Way to go Melissa! It looks great on the quilt block too. Melissa's other project, embroidering a chihuahua on a shirt for her MIL is also completed, making for a happy looking puppy.
