Motifs, Necklaces, Earrings, Doily, and Bookmark

Petite joins the challenge by tatting one of Jane Eborall's bookmarks in Lizbeth "Antique Violet Medium" #640 and "Country Purple Lt" #631 in size 20.

Kkommy has begun a blog and joined the challenge with the 7th snowflake pattern from Festive Snowflakes & Ornaments by Handy Hands. Tatted in Lizbeth "Pink Parade" # 145 in size 20. Her second snowflake is from the same book done in Lizbeth "Sherbert Delight" #108 and "Tropical Punch" #132 on round 1 and "Christmas Green Mix" #152 and "Evergreen Dark" #685 on the second round. The next snowflake is actually the beginning of a pattern from Tatting with Colour by Rosemarie Peel called "Easy Rounds Coaster" which uses only one shuttle and a ball and makes a small coaster size doily. It was worked in Lizbeth "Golden Yellow Light" #612 and Medium #613 in size 20.

Ingrid tatted Eileen Stafford's snowflake pattern that she found on the internet, but when she looked at the picture of her tree from last year she was surprised that she had tatted it before. This time however she used a finer thread and her tatting has improved so that the snowflake is nice and crisp even before blocking.
Mickchick has been busy tatting a number of different projects, beginning with two of Pamela's Tatted Pendants done in size 10 Lizbeth. Then, inspired by Petal Perfect created by Krystle Dawne she tatted a necklace using DMC cotton pearl size 5. The last motif is one she designed to go with a medallion she found at the craft store, and the thread is the same DMC size 5.

Kat is tatting a 4 letter last name as a wedding gift in neutral colours Lizbeth's mocha light and medium following the pattern on Il Chiacchierino Edda Guastalla Bianchetti. She's not sure that she likes the 2 colors together in this.

Agasunset took a piece that she had made some time ago and added a few more motifs to make it into a cuff. It needs a little more tweaking, but it's looking pretty good.

Steph saw Anne B's Dragon Wing Doily and just had to try it out in Yarnplayer's hand dyed thread size 80 in "Brilliant Sunset" with some pink Miyuki 15/0 seed beads on the picots.

Wanda had to restart her doily again as it seemed to have too many repeats. Her Mom gave her some tatting that came off a baby doll dress and she needs to think of some way to display it. She has taken up the Innocent Design Challenge but this one didn't come out the right size.

Ancolie got tired of being stabbed by the shuttles in her pocket, so she made a little pouch decorated with tatting to hold them.

Diane enjoyed tatting Anne Bruvold's Dragon Wing Doily so much she did it again in Lizbeth, size 20, color #633.

Fox is tatting Jon's pattern "Sweet Rose" from her Snowflake book in Vanilla Sky with matching beads. This time she isn't posting the shuttle through the ring first, unlike the way she tatted this snowflake the first time and she's decided that it looks better, so now she has to un-learn the habit. Fox has found a thread that's about size 30, that tats up like Perlovka and while it's a bit soft and fuzzy, it's nice for a change.
Heather finally got to tat with the pure silk hand spun thread that she's been asked to dye a custom colour.

Kelly got the invitation to her hubby`s niece wedding framed and she also re-framed the wedding invitation that's for a store sample for the bridal store that she will do as custom orders.
Krystle has tatted another pair of earrings with crystals that she has glued on. Her "Mad Science" thread has been tatted into a motif by Tats.

Vanessa tatted "Fred Flutterby" from Rozella Linden's Celtic Tatting:Knots and Patterns book in Altin Basak 50.
