Angels, Bookmarks, Earrings and Snowflakes
Fox has used some of Karey's HDT in size 30 to tat Kind Hearts and Coronets, from Karey Solomon's booklet Tatting for the Tree. The little beaded snowflakes use a jump ring for hanging.
Katie shows us what she received in the Secret Santa exchange, a beautiful red bookmark tatted in very fine thread, a package of seed beads, an Aero type shuttle with 2 bobbins, and a tiny tatted angel for the tree.
Rayanna has tatted another Remembrance ring from YarnPlayer's pattern.
Linda tatted some simple motifs glued them to Christmas balls and added beaded fringe to make these ornaments for her grandchildren.
After seeing how well rhinestones go with tatting Krystle went shopping for more bling. Here is the finished necklace...and the matching earrings. That led to an assortment of bracelets and some new earring designs.
Steph has her Rainbow Christmas tree up, but she may need to re-think the size 80 only idea if she wants the snowflakes to show up. In amongst the tatting there is an assortment of antique treasure ornaments.
Wanda modified a snowflake design and created those on the right with Lizbeth color 102 Western Sunset(?) in size 20. One was made with SCMRs and one with two shuttles. Can you spot the difference? The snowflake on the left is a design she created in September.
Aileen has been sick but still managed to tat these sweet little angels. The 2 on the left were done in a Rayon thread the centre is a Birch Silco thread and the 2 on the right are Gutterman cotton 30.
Heather has some new patterns for sale Tatted Winter Fun has 10 winter theme patterns of snowflakes and icicles and the hummingbird is now a separate page with tatted flowers. The necklace was created to incorporate the beads from a set.
Sherry gives us a peek at the first prize in her Monday Mondo Giveaway. She tatted Samantha Melnychuk's Winter Rose for a glow in the dark snowflake using NiteLite Extra Glow by Superior Threads. The Prima butterfly from The Exquisite Book of Tatted Butterflies was tatted in her own HDT Enchantment.
