Ornaments, Snowflakes, Earrings, Cross and a Heart

Claudia has tatted some more Christmas ornaments. The square motif was made with variegated yellow, DMC perle cotton thread size 8 and the green motif uses Ambar macrame cotton thread which is similar to a size 10. and for square motif in variegated yellow, DMC perle cotton thread #8. Violet the spider is a pattern from Terry Nimer, which was shared with the last 2010 online tatting class made in Pilar (from Paraguay), similar to a size 20, in lilac colour and added beads on the legs.

Mary tatted Melati from Jon Yusoff's Tatting with Rings except that she only did 5 points instead of 6 and she repeated the mistake on the second one because these were done to make earrings.

Bonnie tatted Julie Patterson's Hearts and Flowers Cross Bookmark in Tatskool's ChocoRaspberry HDT which she thinks is size 40, as a gift for a co-worker.

Lily showed us her 4 point variation which was a result of not having enough thread on the shuttle and not wanting to add in thread for just one more ring. We all know what that's like. Here's a picture of what the original 5 point star looks like. She also shows what happened when she rescued the beads from the pendant. Suddenly it looks like a heart. Sometimes the weight or the positioning of beads, pulls a motif out of shape.
