Doily, Motifs, Bookmarks, TIAS, Dragon, Edging and Heart

Ninetta used DMC 80 to tat this original pattern which is worked continuously, but the effect is of a lot of rows. It is executed with 2 shuttles, to use split rings climbing from a row to another.
Isa tatted this Jan Stawsz motif in size 20 cotton thread with 88 cristal pearls to make a pendant. This is her 17th motif along with TIAS day 8 and she still doesn't know what it will be when it's done.

Orsi tatted her first Josephine knots and designed a motif that uses them. The motif was name, appropriately, Napolean. But what is Napolean without his Josephine, so she created another motif, called Josephine.

Kat is joining the One World One Heart giveaway and shows us her door prize.
Corina has her day 7 of TIAS done.
Tatteristic tatted the Amusement doily in Lizbeth Wild Flower size 40 and explains how to use the Way Back Machine to find the pattern.
Isabel has days 5, 6 and 7 of TIAS completed.
IsDihara tatted Anitra Stone's cardinal pattern to make some cute earrings. She thought longer wing picots would be better, but discovered that it would also require longer tail feathers to be proportional. This bitty bird measures a mere 1.25 inches using Lizbeth size 20 in #671 Christmas Red, a tiny bit of black thread, one black seed bead and one orange-red seed bead.

Linda tatted the Cherub Doily by Ann Wilson in Lizbeth's Pink Parade colours. Like so many others she has day 7 of TIAS done and the more she tats the less it looks like anything specific.

Wanda has what appears to be a Flying Minor Norwegian Dragon by Anne Bruvold, in shades of Lizbeth #142 Turquoise Twist. She also has day 7 TIAS done and she thinks IsDihara's guess of skink might be the closest.

Carol has been working on Jane Eborall's TIAS, still without a clue to what it is. For Christmas she tatted a Tatted Bat Pendant and Bat Earrings, perfect for a Vampire fan. The design is by Mark Myers. She also tatted a second bat pendant, which is a design by Megumi and both were a big hit. She bought a metal filigree finding and added tatting and beads in a somewhat random manner and she really liked the way it turned out.

Diane decided a snowy day was good for tatting and made Mary Konior's Star motif in a variegated thread she thinks is Valdani.
Fox tatted Mixed Bouquet from A Pattern Book of Tatting, by Mary Konior in size 20 thread, the green is size 40 Milford and the amber beads are from her mom.
Gina found that a single shuttle row of rings from the D.M.C. Tatting by Therese de Dillmont gave a similar row of tatting to a row of split rings tatted in size 20. The second and third rows use small rings off the top of the chains and are tatted on either side of the first row of rings. Gina did it again in Lizbeth Springtime and substituted Josephine knots for the small rings. The addition of a small crochet flower covered the spot where both ends meet and it makes a perfect votive candle cover.

Ingrid finally found an edging pattern that worked for her. It worked out nicely and shapes nicely.

Laura has motifs 8, 9, 10, 11 and 12 done. She was trying for trefoils in the corners and after several tries she made one with trefoils in the corners that she likes the look of.

Lily was stuck at one point on TIAS, but she will be working at it again when she gets home.

Marty tatted the little heart from the talented Anne Bruvold made with Bermuda Red thread hand-dyed by her sister on CebeliĆ” size 30.
