Bookmarks, Motifs, Tree Topper, Earrings and Doilies

Kat saw this idea on Tatteristic's blog and thought it was a great way to display some tatting. This is Lizbeth size 20 thread in tropical punch and she's hoping to make some more of these for some quick gifts. Catherine is back from vacation where she tatted this tree topper design from the book "Tatting for Today" designed by Marion T. Leyds. She also managed to tat 38 inches ring and chain edging for a hanky.

Patrycja created this 22 cm doily on the fly using Aida 20 in ecru. The simplicity of naked chains stands out against the abundance of picots on the rings making for an effective design.
Ann has a wonderful idea for a Tatting Press. a lovely little package that keeps her tatting flat and her threads untangled when not in use. Moreover, she is currently having a giveaway for one of these lovelies in the pattern of your choice. Check out the full details on her blog.

Wanda thought she had written out the pattern for this doily, but she hasn't been able to find it. So now she's going to sit down and count stitches to make sure she gets it on paper.Ellen has been working on a lot of art-doll ATCs and since the theme for is fibres and ribbons, she embellishing them with bits of tatting. Tatting goes with everything.

Since Fox has moved into her new place she has lots of bright light and a new place to tat from. In spite of all the upheaval of moving she still managed to tat Vicki Clarke's Band-Aid Heart for a friend who is sick. Heather tatted this new design for either necklace or earrings but wonders if they might be a little long. They could always be done in a finer thread which would make them smaller and shorten the design.
