Bookmark,Snowflake, Horseshoe and an Antique Collar
Shirl has tatted another bookmark to keep on hand for gifts. This one measures 5 1/2 inches in HH Lizbeth thread size 20 color 691.
LauraRose has tatted Jon's Quantiesque snowflake in another Perle 8 thread.
Wanda tatted a horseshoe to go with her horse's head, although it looks a bit more like a U. That kind of thing happens when the family is visiting. She plans to re-do it and tweak the design since the colour doesn't go well with the horsehead she's done.
TattingChic found a wonderful antique tatted collar comprised of medallions with needle lace centres. The individual motifs have been tied together as you would expect in an antique piece, but the outer border is a cloverleaf edging that uses the standard joins. This looks like it might be a transition piece created just at the time when tatters started using joins.
