Bookmarks, Shamrocks and Easter Tatting

Chiara has tatted a floral motif DMC perlè cotton n.8 in solid green and variegated lilac. And added it to a tea towel for a friend.
Linda's quilt group was at an Art and Quilt Show and displayed tatting along with their quilting. She has finished her pin cushion doll which has a CQ skirt and tatted edgings on hat, neck and sleeves.
Krystle has tatted Mary Konior's Spinning Wheel glass mat in Countryside Lizbeth. Ruth Perry's Celtic Shamrock which is in the Tatting Pattern Calendar listed in the sidebar n the right (search for shamrock) which was also made in Lizbeth thread. Lenore English's bookmark pattern again done in Lizbeth.
Patricia has been dyeing some vintage Corticelli Mills size 60 threads in lovely graduated shades from purple to green, or at least that was the plan. It tats up nicely!
Vinnie is experimenting with mignonette tatting.
Ais stated the TIAS with the intention of using it as her last piece for the challenge but on day 5 she ran out of thread. Being unable to replenish a thread colour is guaranteed to stop you in your tracks.
Terry has created egg shaped photo frames just in time for Easter using Caron's Wildflowers in Springtime.
Joy tatted "Rose Ornament" from Christmas Angels and Other Tatting Patterns by Monica Hahn.
Wally has been practising her using this motif from "Cluny Tatting Designs" by Joy Botchlet.
