Motifs, Camel, Cross, Doily and Snowflakes

Stephanie Grace made 4 attempts at tatting the first round of Four Point #16 from the Ultimate Book of Tatted Doilies, but it didn't want to work out.
IsDihara's camel, Nutmeg has a missed join behind his ears, resulting in a misshapen neck and lack of brain. So now she can't decide whether to decapitate and fix him, or leave him as he is.

Cindy tatted Mary Konior's Large Cross from Tatting with Visual Patterns for her aunt who always remembers her when she comes across shuttles or vintage books, threads and patterns. Cindy has been experimenting counting the join as the first half of the stitch and then doing both first and second half after the join to see which she prefers.

Diane has been doing a spate of cleaning but managed to finish another Spinning Wheel glass mat in LadyShuttleMaker's Piccadilly, size 20.

Fox tatted the Grace Snowflake again and this time without the mistakes and SLTs it looks more symmetrical. It currently resides on her showcase lampshade.

Gina has plans to use this tatting on a rock. She tatted the second "ground" motif, a small triangle. The combined motifs can be used as a tree, an arrowhead or as an insert on a top.

Katherinne tatted Jon's Quantiesque snowflake, done in size 20 Lizbeth Vineyard Harvest and Boysenberry Dark which required using SLT instead of the SS to get the colours working the way she wanted.
