Bookmarks, Edging, Motifs, Necklaces and a Doily

Bree has discovered that some days nothing you are tatting works the way you want it to and that's when you end up with a lot of cut off bits and pieces. Never mind. Every bit you do improves your skills even when it doesn't look like it.
BSOTF tatted a 3D doodle just emptying a shuttle.
Ancolie tatted this doily by Sumi Fujishige for the challenge. The pattern is diagrammed but all the text is in Japanese.
Fox tatted a mini sampler with lots of techniques she has learned like roll tatting cluny leaves, and single shuttle split rings, but she thinks she might have accidentally thrown it out. She finished another Stumpy bookmark and managed to get to the Fringe Element tatters event in Cambridge Ontario and meet up with Kelly. That was where she learned how to do needle tatting and made this cameo motif in white and received a black one as a gift from Kelly. She received some Mettler Machine quilting thread from the Thread Exchange and thanks to Miranda tatted this little gem with bugle beads.
Martha returned from Palmettos and immediately began tatting an edging for a hanky for the local fair She didn't have a lot of time and really would have liked to use a finer size 80 thread but had to be happy with the size 40 Lizbeth because she just didn't have a lot of time. Isn't this just the perfect edging and colour choice for this dainty treasure?
