Vinnie hasn't had a lot of time for tatting lately but decided to take upon the challenge of making a heart of a six sided snowflake she came up with this using red and mint green. She still has her filet crochet project going on and has made this lovely bag to hold it in. Shirley has been tatting up a storm here are her motifs 12, 13, 14, 15, 16 & 17. First is a snowflake using the new Christmas thread from Lisbeth size 20 the snowflake measures 4" and she is not sure where the pattern came from. Next is a bookmark she tatted for her son at his request. Next is a thumb rosary and 2 small angels she plans on making and donating to "the Preemie Project" at the Univ. Hospital for them to sell at their craft show.
Mrs. John her #12 motif is a doily that she entered in the local county fair. The pattern: the Occasional Doily from Tatting Doilies and Edgings,edited by Rita Weiss, Dover 1980. The pattern specified size 10 thread and she used natural size 10. This motif was needle tatted. She also did a lovely hand dyed thread display.
Anne is working on this lovely piece and says "Finally some warm and lazy days after a rather cool summer so far. With the possibility of tatting in outdoors."
Heather has some new hand dyed threads and plans on doing a benefit craft sale for a friend who has stage 4 breast cancer. She is still looking for some donated crafts to sell see the blog for details.
Jeff has tatted his 23rd motif and its a book mark he says "This leaf was made using Yarnplayer's Summer Trail HDT in size 30. As you can see I turned the motif into a bookmark by making a length of lock stitch chain where the stem is. I really like the way it turned out." I like it too its very nice! He is also working on chainmaille.
