Hearts, Butterflies, Coasters and Doilies

Brigitte tatted earrings for herself using Marilee's HDT Rhubarb Pie size 30 and pink beads. The pattern is by Elizabeth Zipay.
Laurette found a unique way to display her tatted doily. This multicolour doily is a pattern that she found online, but can't remember where. It's made with Lizbeth Carousel thread size 20 and she thinks if she makes it again she'll do the inner chains in white to better show off the inner rings.
Linda has finished the first of 2 Christmas stockings for her niece. This one embellished with tatting will be entered in the county fair. The tatted heart Flag Pin is worked in size 20 Flora and Lizbeth threads. The pattern is by B.J. Heisler and can be found at Heisler's Creative Stitchery.
Krystle tatted the chain rosette with some extra bling in the form of matching pink Swarovski crystals. She calls the pattern "garden Jewel earrings". The earring and necklace set in black are going to her sister. The white rosette earrings are going in to her Etsy shop.
Wanda kicked back for Tatting Tea Tuesday and made these lovely pairs of red and variegated thread coasters.Only one more to go.
Alan created this gorgeous cross based on a bonnet pattern in Aunt Ellen's Tatting Handbook. He has his ordination service coming up on Sunday and if that wasn't reason enough to celebrate, he has been awarded a Folk Art Fellowship by the National Endowment for the Arts and the Mississippi Arts Commission in the amount of $4400 for my tatting. Bravo! Applause! Applause! Congratulations! Well Done!
Bev received a lovely surprise in the mail a beautiful Martha Ess butterfly and a sunshiny gold doily from her friend Diane L. The butterfly card is for her friend in Sweden tatted in Rainbow Bright HDT fromPamela Meyers) the butterfly is designed by Marty.
Diane finished Susan K. Fuller's Heart's Desire in Coral Reef by Tatskool.
Moni has completed an assortment of motifs and left the ends as it will be easier to sew these medallions onto lavender bags in this way. The small rings on the chains are Josephine rings and it's similar to Vinnies idea. The finished results are wonderful.
