Tatting of all kinds

Gail's doily centre is visible now. I haven't seen the magazine that it comes from but the centre is gorgeous and the colour is lovely. Gail is going through the challenge of working it without having to cut the thread.
Diana had the opportunity to post some pictures of the things she has been working on. The tatted lady is from the Big Book of Tatting by Darlene Polanchic. She also tatted a collar pattern that she added some motives to so that it was large enough but the picture doesn't do it justice.
I forgot to mention yesterday Sharon designed a square motif that started circular.

Marilee had problems with her blog and moved it, so if you have linked to her old blog don't forget to change the addy. Marilee designed a beaded shamrock and sent the pattern to Ruth to be included in the Tatting Pattern Calendar. She shows how the shamrock can be used as a hair ornament. Great design!
Laura has completed another round on the friendship doily and it's growing row by row.Charlene has posted a link to a petition on her web site.

Marty has posted some doodles she was working on. Sometimes a randomly tatted bit just works into a wonderful design - and sometimes it doesn't. Now you get to see what a 'that didn't work' design looks like. On the other hand she did this really nifty bookmark design, she's not quite satisfied with it, but I think it looks good.

Sylvia's daughter crocheted her sweet little wrist bag to hold her thread. The design has rings on both sides of the bag so that the thread can come through the bag but the ball stays firmly inside. This is so much better than playing "chase the ball".
