Tatting for notecards, earrings and bags

I began today's update this morning and here the day is almost over and I'm just getting around to posting. Where does the time go?

Gail tatted Camilla one of the patterns from Tatted Bookmarks by Lene Bjorn. Gail likes these bookmarks because they all have fancy tassels.

Sharol's Red Hat chapter made cards. Hers is sporting a lovely wee butterfly done in a thread Sharol received in an exchange.
Sharon has tatted 25 motives, but they've all been multiples of the same thing, which wasn't what she had planned. There are 25 of them and they are done, so she thinks she'll move onto the denim bag challenge.
Jeanne has done a pair of earrings from a Snowgoose publication using 2 strands of Sulky thread. I love the colour.
Carol has been busy with yard work and her basket isn't progressing very fast. So in lieu of tatting she has posted an updated picture of her growing puppy.

Laura did one of the Tatted Rose Garden motives from the Big Book of Tatting using Flora thread. The yellow she had was too bright so she use DMC Cebelia instead.
Dawn has finished her 2nd batch of 25 motives with the derby hat from the Tatting Pattern Calendar. She has plans to do an edging for daughter's T-shirt that she made. She has also worked on a cross that was in the calendar, doing it from memory in size 8 perle cotton. Her latest project is a little flower using pearl tatting and daisy picot. Her long term project is an edging for a tablecloth. It's nice to have something lined up for when you have a spare minute or two.
Melissa has joined the Tatting Treasures from Trash denim bag challenge and shows us how she is making the bag. She doesn't have a lot of tatting to add to it yet but she's working on it. The kids are making amazing progress on their embroidery and Melissa just has a little more tweaking to do on her CQ block.
Sherry has been playing around with all the new techniques that she is learning and came up with this cute design worked with 3 shuttles. The kiln has been put into good use lately too and Sherry has some new items with tatting designs on them available in her Etsy shop.
