Jewelry, Butterflies, Bugs, and Hearts

Pam is just learning to tat and has decided to jump right in to the challenge. She began with needle tatting and is trying to get a handle on how much thread she needs to have on her needle to finish a project so her first little butterfly has one deformed wing. The next try she made with ample thread. Then it was on to hens and chicks.

Krystle has sealed some lovely little motifs done in HDT in resin to make jewelry but notes that the resin makes the thread colours look wet.
Kathy modified Jon's entwined heart pattern and created a larger enclosed heart. The finished lace has been added to a Victorian shoe Christmas stocking.

Heather has an assortment of new HDT ready including Bali, Waves, Turquoise Violet, Turquoise, Pink for Link, Harvest and Halloween. Heather also has a Mystery Contest going and has tatted some pieces in her new HDT Harvest Time in size 20 and again in Turquoise Violet the size 30. Joy has tatted her version of the Mary Fitch Handkerchief Case from the 1915 Crocheted Yokes and Tatting book.

Martha has a bag of "buggy" buttons and she has used them to make more lanyards.

Sherry has also been dying more HDT. Available now are Middle Earth, Tropicana, Royalty, and Pastel Rainbow.

Wally discovered the tatting trimmed hanky on an outing with her sister. This marble stone has been encapsulated by tatting using Lizbeth thread. Now she has to find the right cord for the pendant.
