Aileen has tatted Witchery the Cat by Inga Madsen for her round robin. She has embellished a cosmetics pouch for a friend by adding tatted initials and some tatted flowers were added to hair clips. She picked up some Dylon cold dyes and tried her hand at dying threads. The initial dying looked pretty good but a lot of the colour came out in the rinse. Aileen's friend brought her some lovely shuttles even one with her name inscribed. Here latest tatting is a frog by Jane Eborall.
Gina has finished the last motif in the book and now she's thinking she should have done them all in the same colour. What's she supposed to do with 25 mismatched motives?
Joy enters the challenge with the thistle bookmark by J. N. Faeih done in size 20 thread and the green for the stem is size 30 Cebelia (DMC). Joy has been working on a doily a "serious" project and finished on time to gift it, is a dresser scarf with a tatted hens and chicks border.
Carol is still working on her gingerbread house. It needs more stiffening and more candy.
Jon is working from a tatted motif from Tatting with Anne Orr and she's working with DMC Dentelles 80, colour code 109 trying to see how big she can make it repeating each segment continuously without having to cut the thread. Laura sent her some hand dyed thread to try out and included a rose snowflake and a celtic snail.
Marty has been working her way through Iris Neibach's Fantasia and she did "Trifoglio" in pastel Coats hand-quilting thread. The tatting is a little tight and the colour doesn't really show the hearts or negative spaces. "Stella alpina" was worked in Coats variegated "southwest" colored machine quilting thread. Since she's working these in such fine thread she could easily seal them inside a clear coaster.
Sherry has created a doily in her Baby Shower colour. She has a new batch of Fuschia colour and proposes to do custom colours. Do you have a colour you'd like to see created?
