Bookmarks, Heart, Motif, Edging

Julie has a cross that her Grandmother tatted, but she doesn't know where the pattern comes from or if it was something her Grandmother invented and she has reproduced it by referring to the scan she received of the ones her sister was given and copying the one she has. They are all similar although they have different stitch counts. She used size 20 Lizbeth in Mountain Breeze for the one she tatted.

Journey tatted the first part of this cross in some more of the vintage blue, yellow and white size 80 thread. It wasn't as quick a job as she thought it would be, due to some necessary retro tatting.
Stephanie Grace tatted Candle by Dee Powell from Tatted Bookmarks Needle & Shuttle edited by Barbara Foster. For thread, she picked Country Side 117 and the corresponding Blue Med 651, both LizBeth size 20.
Fox has tatted Elisa's pattern again and again and then she tatted one of the pretties from Kaye B. Judt's Oh My Stars!, but not without a few trials.

Isa is working on a project that's her own idea.
Kelly found a cloth at the thrift store and she has been adding this tatted edge to it in DMC Cebelia the matches the stitching on the cloth.
Wanda designed the first cross on the right in Lizbeth size 20 thread #633 dark purple in the centre and the outside in #127 Butterfly Breeze. After she had it done she thought of some things she could do differently and tried it again in the same colours.
