Wedding Dress, Bookmarks, Snowflakes, Fowers, and Doily

Ingrid tatted Arabesk from the Gun Blomqvist and Elwy Persson book in Durable cotton. She has also posted a series of pictures showing how she tats without flipping stitches.
BSOTF used Yarnplayer's Rhubarb Pie with Flora's Christmas Green to create a splash of colour and perk up an ordinary pencil holder.
Magda created a wonderful wedding dress for a friend. The cap sleeves are edged in tatting as is the matching shawl. The same design is used for the bow that adorns the empire waist while tiny flowers cascade across the bodice and dot the edges of the side slits. Only some of the pictures are shown here, so for a better look make sure to click on the link and visit Magda's blog.
Wendy made another modification to her Daisy wheel doily and opened up the design. This one is tatted with Flora 20 in white for the first two rounds and then a variegated yellow for the outer round.

Shirley tatted "The Deaconess Butterfly" from the pattern rewritten by Carolyn Groves in Flora size 20, color #37. The bookmarks are her version of flower #35 from Mary Maynard's book "Tatting Rings of Flowers". The larger one is 2" and uses DMC size 20, color #799 smaller one is size 20, in Lady Shuttlemakers HDT "Shades of Gray". The snowflake is "Aladdin" from Jon Yusoff's "Tatted Snowflake Collection" in Flora color #55 size 20.
