Bookmarks, Motifs, Heart, Earrings, Doily, and Flower

BSOTF shows us how kids can turn your practice pieces into bookmarks. This pen holder has been decorated with a flower bed, but there are lots of options for making your own.
Marta is working on a green theme. A motif by Iris with beads and silver wire, a turquoise square and a framed green heart.
Nami has new earrings called cherry orchard.
Kat got some of Dr Vonthreadmore's blue/green test thread and tatted a Stumpy bookmark to keep. She's making slow but steady progress on Piecework by Mary Konior.
Katherinne was doing really well with her doily, or at least she thought she was, until she realized that she had made a mistake and had to cut off the entire third row and start it again, correctly this time.
Wanda decorated another candle holder in tatting using a variegated Lizbeth thread but now that it's done she thinks a solid colour would look better and has plans to add beads to the next one. Aileen has tried out Jane's Button Mini in size 20 Lizbeth Lollipop, with 11/0 purple beads and a spring green button.
Ancolie is starting another 25 motifs to improve my technical know how and has plunged into "The tatted artistry of Teiko Fujito" which was going really well until she cut a thread near the end.
Krystle is sporting a pair of earrings she whipped up to wear to the I.O.L.I. convention
Shirl has a collection of pink and green motifs done in Lizbeth thread size 20 completed that she's counting together as motif 23.
