Seahorse, Celtic Rose Star, Beaded Cross and more

Terry had a large number of orders to get ready and then she decided to take her bells to Palmettos and discovered that she was missing several of them and had to tat fast and furious to get them all done. Now that things have slowed down a bit she can post again. Terry has provided the pattern for this lovely bookmark which was designed for a tatter that lost her battle with cancer.
Wendy spent her time in the doctor's office with her daughter who got whiplash from falling down the stairs. Good thing, little kids bounce better than adults.

Anne has finished knitting the mystery stole and now she's working on a two winged shawl.

Sarah received a vintage Paragon book "Tatting" and after perusing the book she has decided on a motif for the doily she wants to make. She has also displayed the samples of hairpin lace she has been experimenting with.

Tami has been busy quilting, and making purses but in between she managed to tat a bright yellow seahorse. Iris has tatted a wonderful cross with beads and she says she can only work with beads when her grandchildren aren't around.

Ruth tatted this combination of a Celtic Rose and a Celtic Star which she says is a challenging to weave, but easy to tat.

This is Clyde's third time around for the 25 Motif Challenge and his second motif is an edging from Tatting Patterns and Designs by Gun Blomqvist and Elwy Persson tatted with Finca perle 16 pink, that he received in the thread exchange.

Laura tatted Jane's Lobster but she ran out of thread and she thinks maybe she didn't make the picots big enough for claws. He's destined for Isaac's animal jacket.

Sherry was delighted to find that she had won several ribbons for her tatting including Best of Show for her 5 shuttle tatted doily.
