Cross, Snowflake, Edgings, TIAS, Bracelet, Motif, Hearts and Flowers

Kat tatted the Monica cross from Tatted cross-shaped Bookmarks by Lene Bjorn in Lizbeth Boysenberry dk for a friend. Her friend sent her this delicate snowflake to see if she could tat something similar.
Tatteristic has been tatting the Mary Konior pattern, Duet, from her book, Tatting with Visual Patterns in Lizbeth Wildflower size 40 combined with white cotton thread. It was fun to work on once she got started and she would have kept going, except that she ran out of thread.
Sunshinecraft tatted Jane's TIAS in blue Altin Basak metallic polyester and the silver is another brand of thread that isn't as nice to tat with. There was still some thread on the shuttle and some beads from a a bracelet the little lady broke so she is making her a new bracelet with it.

IsDihara has been tatting Orsi's Nelson edging in size 30 Bali HDT by Backwoods Tatter and size 40 Lizbeth colour #663. She noticed that the Lizbeth thread was a bit more crisp.
Diane has tatted the viney edging again, this time using size 20 "Fern" by Yarnplayer. It still isn't quite right.

Fox is making progress, both in her tatting and in her stash reduction. You know what this means, don't you? As soon as the stash gets pared down to a manageable size, she will suddenly find she needs those threads she has just divested herself of.
Gina loves the look of Victats Dagger Heart, but doesn't really have a need for hearts after Valentines day. That's OK because she has discovered that when it's done in bright spring colours and has a pearl tatted stem added it becomes a lovely flower. So now she has a whole bouquet waiting for stems.

Lily has just finished test tatting Jessica's split ring bracelet and she'll work on the other patterns later.
