Motifs, Bookmarks, Dragons, Doilies and Earrings

Viv tatted a couple of medallions just because she received some hand dyed threads and had to try them out. There's size 10 Vibrato by YarnPlayer. Size 20 Plum Tickled by LadyShuttleMaker. The Bookmark is motif #3 and the pattern from this site Bookmark. She left off the fringe thing at the bottom and will add ribbon on each side before she packs it up for a gift. It's tatted in Lizbeth Dark Turquoise and Jewels.
IsDihara was talking about haunted houses and couldn't find the link to Carol Amich's incredible 3D wonder, and Carol sent her a picture of it to post.
Brigitte entered a picture of tatted dragons in the Canadian County Fair and received four 1st place, two 2nd place and one 4th place. Congratulations! Steph shows us a picture of the Gerbera Daisy doily done by Jane in South Africa.

Ancolie has done the spinning wheel glass mat again just because it was fun.
Barbara finished her Celtic doily, a pattern by Lenore English using Omega size 30, color 1336/Natural along with Spring Grass HDT from Yarnplayer and Pistachio for the solid matching colour. Here's both sides of the doily.
Anne made a pouch to keep her MP3 player together and her pattern for the chinese dragon is posted.

Heather took 3 tries to get this lovely twisty turny design to gel. Isn't it wonderful? Will this be in the new book?
Joy tatted this Rose Cross bookmark from a Workbasket magazine and she has plans to make more bookmarks and ornaments for an upcoming craft show. She's done a hanky, a bookmark, and a little ornament. The hanky and bookmark are her own designs and the ornament is adapted from a gift tag pattern.

Sherry happened upon an antique shop and came away with some treasures trimmed in tatting. Something that looks like a bib or maybe it'a a dickie to be worn under a low front dress, and an embroidered cloth with a tatted edging in very fine thread that looks like size 100.
