Bookmarks, Butterfly, Doily, Earrings, Edging, Flowers, Angel and Motifs, Necklaces, Snowflakes

Petite has now finished the Dragon Wing Doily and she's off to her tatting class.Tats wanted to do Anne's Tardis bookmark for a long time, but she didn't know how to do split rings. Thanks to Linda's You Tube videos she now knows how to make split rings and she's the proud owner of a Tardis bookmark in Lizbeth size 20, colour 654. Marta has nothing to show but a lot of unfinished pieces. To me it looks like 3 pair of earrings and a pendant. Nami has a new pair of earrings ready for Viola.
Tatteristic has tatted the Thirteenth Day of December pattern which has long chains and a new technique to learn, split chains.
Wanda has started tatting bookmarks for a challenge on one of the forums to tat one bookmark a month. She has a head start on this month with 2 although she thinks one doesn't look quite finished.
Diane has been highly motivated to tat with the new Chris Hinton's Winder Shuttle version 1.2 and she made Motif A from "Elegant Tatted Sampler" from the book Tatted Samplers by Karen Lindsay.
Fox has her 3D flower assembled and attached to the hat and the beaded edging is progressing nicely. She's been saying she'd never use beads, never make 3D flowers or design her own tatting, but here she has beads and flowers and what's this? a new design? She was fooling around with some thread and look what happened. Krystle needed some tatting therapy to help deal with stress. Here are her Spanish Dancer earrings in Vineyard at Dusk HDT and a new, as yet unnamed colour of HDT. Then there were these earrings in Lizbeth's new olive green.
Marty won first prize for this lovely tatted angel made with white button cotton and a tiny bit of Oren Bayan gold metallic thread. She can't find the pattern for it, but if anyone recognizes it can you let her know so that she can give proper credit. This one was entered in "Wedding Accessory." for the flower girl's dress because she didn't have anything else to put in the wedding category.
Sherry took home 3 first place ribbons; for Iris Nirbach's TIAS doily, her Prima butterfly, and for her pineapple bookmark. She also took home 3 second place ribbons for both of her tatted necklaces and for her awesome barnyard theme. That's pretty good for 7 entries especially when some of the categories were so broad.

The angel I tatted is Marjorie's Angel by Martha Ess. It's available on her website as one of her free patterns (she's generous!)
