Bookmarks, Snowflakes, Squares and TIAS

Just a reminder that although the current fun stuff in shown condensed here to make it easier for you to keep up with everyone, don't forget to check on our past participants too. Mark is still working on some awesome wedding lace for his neice and Carol has a haunted house in the works, just to name a couple of them.
Chiara is enjoying the challenge and she loves to tat snowflakes and bookmarks. These 2 bookmarks are tatted with DMC perle cotton size 8 in light green and variegated pink and light blue and Chiara has plans to tat it again with variegated yellow and violet. The pattern is by Mae Taylor.
Linda is working on a pin cushion doll embellished with tatting. I can't wait to see the finished doll.
Krystle is in the mood for square motifs like the one from Mary's blog done in size 20 flora which measures 3x3". Jon's pattern was tatted in Altin Basak and it's about 2 1/2 inches.
Charlotte has tatted the "Ribbon Snowflake" from Vida Sunderman's Tatted Snowflakes in Sherry's "Icicle" HDT.
Vinnie found the song "Starry Starry Night" an inspiration for her "Flowery Flowery Star" done in Size 20 Anchor MC Thread in blue and white using Daisy Picot technique. This is the Bunch of Grapes from First edition of Tatting book by Reigo in 1850 which Vinnie found redone by Martha Ess on Georgia Seitz site and she did it in Anchor size 8 pearl cotton.
Ancolie has tatted Anne's microdragon for the online class.
Nita was practicing hanging clunies and didn't want to change colours so here is her green flower which she promises to do again in proper flower colours.
Ellen is tatting the new TIAS from Iris and she shows us the sewing gauge that she is using to work on it.
Aileen tatted another of "Donna's Butterfly" one of Marty's patterns which she finds addictive. She has been emptying more shuttles and sorting out her tatting books and supplies in preparation for the upcoming move and found a little something she created a while ago. Meet Rattle her 3D tiny tatting toy mouse.
Bev shows us the lovely tea towel with tatted button heart, trim and edging that she received in the recent Valentine's tea towel exchange. The green clover bookmark is another pattern from Karey Solomon's Tatting Times. Bev also does a review of the recently acquired "Tatting Basic Patterns" by Rosemary Peel and the soon to be received Judith Connor's, "Tatting Adventures with beads, shuttles and needle.
Eva is tatting Iris' TIAS in some size 20 thread in 2 different green shades.
Martha has posted some more information about the Hector event and challenged other teachers to feature their class projects on their blogs.
Sherry's student Hye-Soon is tatting Mary Konior's cross in Sherry's size 80 Pear Glace HDT and it's looking beautiful.
Wally has tatted more of the beaded design she was working on.
