Motifs, Easter Egg, Doily, Edging

Sunshinecraft is learning some new techniques including finger tatting which she found wasn't too bad except for handling long tangling threads. She has been using a netting shuttle for working with beads and she finds they hold an amazing amount of beads.

Barbara has tatted # 14 from TATTED Easter Eggs by Kirsten Wind Hansen. This one is in Lizbeth thread size 20, #104 called Summer Fun. She used a roll stitch on the top, bottom and both sides which she has only done once before.

Bev aka BJ was astounded to receive the amazing surprise in the mail. She had arrange with Marty to receive a little something tatted, but what she got was the spectacular doily that Marty just completed.
Fox tatted Myra Piper's pattern in Heather's Sweet Peppermint #30 HDT and the colour was a bit too busy. She had wanted to tat the middle in Suneeti's red metallic, but it kept breaking. She only has five repeats left on the edging, then she has the tough part left of sewing it on.
