Elizabeth created a shuttle design for the TatChat group back in the 90's and she still uses the design today. Here it is as a pin and done again as part of a necklace. Isn't it lovely? Elizabeth has also been tagged to post 7 weird/random things.
For everyone who thinks that dazzling designs drip from a designer's shuttle, Martha shows the slow, steady, scrupulous journey from concept to completion. There are 9 variations shown here for one small heart. Now multiply that by the 19 designs in the book, and Martha has done the challenge 7 times over!Pamela tatted one little mouse with Coats Red Heart 20 and another with Coats Mercer Anchor 20 and there is a significant difference in the finished size. Did you know that the plural for mouse, the rodent is mice, but the plural for mouse, the Manually-Operated User-Selection Equipment attached to your computer is actually M.O.U.S.E.s because it's the plural of an acronym? Last year Wendy's neighbors left a nativity set on their doorstep one piece at a time until the night before Christmas the last piece, the baby Jesus was left and the gifter revealed. What a nice way to celebrate the season! She is working on a Halloween yo-yo quilt, planning it as she goes.

Mark posted the most gorgeous floral spray using Oliver Twist thread. I'm glad he got the visibility problems sorted out because it's just too beautiful to miss. Mark has also been tagged to post 7 weird/random facts.
Laura tatted Sherry's Autumn Leaf pattern in 4 colours and made a small mistake which she didn't notice until the end, so she re-worked it in Gemini Double Strand Crochet Thread by Royale color # 0460 Golden Yellow/Pumpkin and it's a very fall like colour. She may do a bunch of these and create a mobile with them. Laura has been tagged to post 7 weird/random facts too. Marty's sister did this tie dyed long sleeved onesie for a winter baby and Marty added the tatting along the neck using one strand of Gütermann cotton thread and one strand of Signature machine embroidery thread. The diagrammed pattern for it is on her blog. Marty too has been tagged to post 7 weird/random facts.
Melissa has completed the tatted cuffs for her sweater. It certainly adds a touch of pizazz to an ordinary sweater. While she was on a roll adorning winter clothing she finished embroidering the lapels of her jacket and added some beads for sparkle. Doesn't it look terrific?
