Bookmarks, Motifs, Bracelet, Heart, Cross, Tulip and Headband

Prabhjyotsaini found Saundra Hameed's Mom bookmark which is perfect for Mother's Day.

Shannon has made 2 tatting presses following Ann's pattern and she's keeping one but will sell the other. Here's hers with her current WIP, a doily that she's doing in size 30 thread.

Ancolie has found the perfect design to end off her challenge. At least this one, she may be back for more.

Fox has also made it through another 25 with this marvellously masterful motif. To prove her point that her stitches are not as uniform as they ought to be she posts a picture of the old, and the new improved side by side. She has also posted a picture showing how she holds her work.

Isa has designed a bracelet that she plans on wearing for Easter.

Kat has been tatting and giving her lace away before she had a chance to take pictures, but she managed to get these two. Jon's Hearts Entwined was done for yet another wedding present in Lizbeth size 20 Lilac Dk. The Maria cross was also needle tatted in the same colour.

Kathy tatted a very vivid tulip in size 20 Lizbeth Jelly Bean thread by joining vintage triangles together. She first joined the triangles together into a circle in a random manner, and then she did it again in a controlled manner deliberately starting with the purple colour and joining the purple rings in the middle. Add a few more triangles with the purple on the corners and a tulip emerged, so she added some leaves and a frame.

Sue found an online edging that she used to make this double heart headband. It's tatted in Lizbeth size 40 Rainbow Taffy and paired up with a blue headband which looks charming being modelled by her granddaughter.
