Necklaces, Earrings, Edgings, Butterflies and Daffodils

Agagsunset finally had just the right stone for this Crystal wrap design.
SunshineCraft is admitting defeat. This jumbled mess is Teri Dusenbery's Fantasia Fan, or at least part of it, worked in burgundy silk. After repeated tries, she just couldn't get it to work right and has done the only sensible thing, she's abandoned it for something simpler that at least works.
Vanessa tatted the daffodils from Toni Storer's book "Tatting down the garden path" as her entry for the Canberra Show using size 30 Altin Basak.
Alan used "Mini-Tats" by Patti Duff for these Cross earrings in silver. They were so adorable he had a hard time getting them back from his wife to photograph them.
Fox shows us the samples of the edging that she tatted from the Priscilla book and submitted to Piecework magazine. The publication has been offering a few more tatted pieces in response to tatter's requests. The more people who buy and then write to them in response to their publishing these patterns, the more of them we'll see. The bonnet has been sent to the corner for a time out so that Fox could tat something fun like the pattern by Myra Piper she's using Krystle's green HDT and variegated HDT from Karey. The Celtic Tatted Snowflake is another pattern that she's having trouble with, but she can't seem to quit tatting it. Jeff is another proud owner of the Pop A Bobbin shuttle which he has displayed on Mary Konior's Filet Panel from Tatting With Visual Patterns. It's worked in Lizbeth size 20 thread in colour #656 Dark Wedgewood and he was playing around with the inner ring size to see if he could make them fit better. Sherry's Hope Butterfly was tatted in Lizbeth size 20 colour #656 Dark Wedgewood and #663 Dark Bright Turquoise. Martha found Nazli Gelin Garden thread and used it with vintage black and brown buttons to make a necklace and matching earrings. Now that she's given it a try she'll have to go back for some other colours.
Wally tatted this crown from "DMC Book of Charted Tatting Designs"in size 10 thread although that pattern calls for size 20, because she wanted a larger crown.

Hi Sharon:
I hope you get this here. I had to move my blog to Rayanna's Tatting. For some reason I can not review or change anything in my old blog "Rayanna's Tatting and Scrapbooking Blog". Please join me at "Rayanna's Tatting".
