Bookmarks, Cross, Doily, Edging, and Flower

Kat has finished the edging for the little one's skirt hem, but now she has to figure out how to attach it.
Cindy has her tatting back from the fair and both pieces won ribbons. Next year she hopes to enter in more categories. She's trying out the patterns from Mary Konior's Tatting with Visual Patterns. the Bud Fragment was tatted in DMC Perle Cotton, Size 8 and since she was in need of some more bookmarks, she did Black Magic bookmark in Yarnplayer's HDT "Tourmaline", Size 20. Another favourite bookmark is Flowers bookmark by Jill Hanna from Handy Hands "Tatted Bookmarks" done in Yarnplayer's HDT "Tourmaline", Size 20 and DMC Perle Cotton, Size 8.
Ann had these beads and thread picked out a long time ago but she needed just the right pattern to use them on and enough quiet time to sit down and work on it. she's decided on the Tatted Doily from A Tatter's Workbook. Anne has cleverly made a doily out of hearts.
Fox is tearing herself away from clunies and to take a breather she tatted a cross from Mary Konior. She also finished off the dangle for "The Boss", who loves everything she gets. Roll tatting is still presenting a challenge. She is saving the stamps from her international packages from the Thread Exchange for her grandson who will be thrilled. She gave Blog2Print a try and although it's a little pricey she did like the results.
