Motifs, Bookmarks, Edging, Cross and Doilies

Michelle has joined the challenge and is currently in the process of tatting Quatrain, a pattern by Frivole. The long term project will take 154 motifs and she has plans to do some other things along the way. Now there's a busy tatter.

Sharon loves Mary Konior's Black Magic bookmark pattern and the purple on the left is Flora while the one on the right is Lizbeth Carribean. Both are size 20 threads. The Carribean one was given to her Mom, but it got lost while she was travelling. Lately she has been busy practicing split rings making Jane Eborall's Fandango pattern. First is Carribean on shuttle one and matching aqua on shuttle two. Below that she used Turquoise twist on both shuttles. When her Mom asked for a new bookmark Sharon decided to send her the lovely Island Breeze Fandango bookmark.

Fox has another pair of wee socks done and ready to send, and some tatting supplies she's waiting to receive, but sadly neither are going anywhere until the postal strike is over.

Laura has created 75 motifs in less than 3 years. She plans on taking the best 15 out of the last 25 and putting them into a book. These are her latest creations; a little round-tuit, one with a nice mix of open and filled spaces, one she thinks needs a little tweaking and a tatted take on a crochet granny square.

Stephanie Grace tatted another Heritage Cross by Dee Powell from Tatted Bookmarks Needle and Shuttle edited by Barbara Foster in Lizbeth size 20, color 131, Vineyard Harvest. Then she finished hiding the ends of Small Round #11 by Kenna Prior from Ultimate Book of Tatted Doilies done in Lizbeth size 20, Color 157, Raspberry Frappe. Finally, she did one motif from the Wild Rose Tray Mat/ Luncheon Set" on pp. 55-56 of The Tatter's Treasure Chest edited by Mary Carolyn Waldrep in Lizbeth size 20. The center is color 644, Boysenberry Dk; the outer round is 131, Vineyard Harvest. That makes 25 and she's ready to start another round.
