Pincushion Doily, Earrings and bookmarks

Vanessa created a pincushion from rolled up strips of material covered in black velvet, then she used a pattern derived from an old DMC publication; Tatting for Today worked in size 2o variegated Coats thread to embellish it.
IsDihara has posted this patriotic bookmark which still needs a fringe. She also posted some pictures of the winning tatting she saw at the fair.
Linda has tatted the Clover Leaf Doily by Linda Davies and earrings by Nancy at Bestitched
Krystledawn has repurposed a diaper caddy to use for her tatting supplies. Now she has a place for everything and everything in it's place whan she need to pick up and go.

Charlotte tatted the Marilee's Celtic Knot Shamrock using her Leafy HDT. Ancolie has tatted a lovely border in DMC variegated thread size 80. Then she did a buttercup and a daisy. Wanda has been tatting paperclip bookmarks too and finds that they are perfect for when you don't have a lot of time because they are quick to make.

Bonnie has tatted a collection of Ellen's paperclip bookmarks, and realized after she'd done a few baskets that they look better with fewer flowers.
Diane received new shuttle and thread from Sherry and she had to try them out. Here is Flower 5 from Projects in Tatting by Sheila York done in Sherry's size 20 Confetti Sprinkles.
Heather has posted a slide show of the designs in her upcoming book.
