Snowflakes, Motifs, Centrepiece and Bookmarks

Carolyn is trying to use up some threads before she succumbs and buys the new threads she wants. This one snowflake is form Festive Snowflakes & Ornaments edited by Barbara Foster in Flora color 2053 size 20 and it measures 4 1/4" across.
Liz recently finished several motifs. The snowflake is based on heart doily by Kelly Luljak tatted in blood red Perle 8. Acacia by Judith Conners was mad in Coats 20 in a blue with some dark blue/purple beads as accent and Sally Magill's MHC Snowflake is done in Lizbeth 20. Of course everyone will recognize the completed Rooster from Jane's TIAS challenge.
Fox is having difficulties with the TAT exercise again and is taking breaks from it to work on this pink and white confection. Wouldn't it look adorable on a little girl? Vanessa tatted Tammy Rogers maple leaf again, only this time she took the plunge and tatted it in size 80 thread.
Bonnie is joining the One World One Heart giveaway For which she has tatted "Poppy" a tatted gecko designed by Jane Eborall and tatted in Sherry's Spring Poppies size 20 HDT.
Anne is displaying 2 centerpieces. The old one had 14 rows and she is using slightly thicker thread and has reached row 11. The new one will be slightly larger.

Diane finished Spinning Wheel glass mat from Tatting with Visual Patterns by Mary Konior in size 20 Vanilla Sky from Tatskool. The two bookmarks are Stumpy from Kersti Anear. The other little pieces are her favorite way to use up thread on a shuttle, making Leaf Braid from the Konior book.
Laura has finished her Lizbeth mat which turned out to be a robust 20 inches wide. For her previous challenge she did 25 snowflakes, so this time around she's doing bookmarks. She's already completed an adaptation of a pattern from Tatting in Lace by Mary Konior using Coats 40 crotchet thread in ecru. She used Lizbeth 20 in Country Turquoise Lt for 2 designs modified from The Complete Book of tatting by Rebecca Jones and the last one is an adaptation from Tatting in Lace by Mary Konior. She used DMC 20 Cordonnet Special for the joined motifs from the book Tatting by Myra Piper.Finally, she used Lizbeth 20 thread in Mocha for another Myra Piper design. Nita tatted this earring design by Marilee Rockley. She tweaked it a bit and says it's lots of fun and fast to do for gifts.
