Stars, Butterflies, Snowflakes and Doilies

Ruth found a little bag and she has added some stars and stripes to it. Continuing on with the star designs Ruth made a simple celtic star with beads and then another celtic star with more complex weaving in it.

Clyde used Hand Dyed Hues thread Perle10, colour 1202 to make this adaptation on the pattern Lacy Medallion Luncheon Set from the book The Tatters Treasure chest by Mary Carolyn Waldrep. Now it's back to working on the tablecloth. There are a lot of large ongoing projects turning up lately. Clyde and Jon are working on tablecloths and another tatter mentioned on the Here-Be-Tatters list that she is working on a set of curtains.

Laura tatted the snowflake from Nancy Tracy's newsletter. The pattern is available from the Be-stitched website. Laura's sample is done in size 30 DMC Cebelia.The thread arrived for her mat project and now she's not sure if she wants to stop at four motives or continue on and tat more of them.

Melissa continues to work on her CQ block. It's getting prettier all the time.

Sherry has added her grape edging to the pocket on her jeans bag for the Tatting Treasures from Trash challenge and she's going to leave it at that, for now. She was going to use the edging for some linen hankies, but she decided to use a pattern from Mary Konior's, Tatting with Visual Patterns called "Eternity Rings" instead. At least she started with the pattern, but she has modified it a little.
