Snowflakes, Doily, Newt, Motifs, Heart, Cross and Butterflies

Tattabugg used Lizbeth size 80 in Blue Ice to tat Third Day of December in the book 24 Snowflakes in Tatting by Lene Bjorn.

Marta thinks that at 29 cm her Winter Tale doily done in colours of milk and honey is complete.

Sharon after breaking the thread in size 20, switched to size 10 to work on Anne Bruvold's Nettie the Newt. Once she had it done in size 10 she switched back to the left over thread in size 20 but ran out of thread before she got to the back legs, found another shuttle with size 20 and started again only to run out of thread again when she got most of the way down the tail.

Fox tatted this orange and green motif in Finca 16 and temporarily laid it on the lilac motif. She is determined to master "Almas" and has drawn it out in colour to help her. So far it's working. The beads appeared blue when they were selected at night, but in the bright light of day they're really green with blue highlights. The celtic pumpkin was finally mastered with the help of some thick cord.

Isa is working on a hummingbird pattern by Karen Lidsay using silk thread and crystal beads.

Orsi has some silk thread, needle tatted flowers for a lacy fabric done. The pumpkin is a plain one since she wasn't brave enough to try the celtic one.

Sue is amazed that she actually managed to get 25 motifs tatted this year. Mary Konior's Queen of Hearts from Tatting with Visual Patterns in size 100 Rainbow Bright HDT from Tatskool. Mary Konior's Posy from Tatting with Visual Patterns in size 40 Lizbeth Fruit Fizz. Tatted Cross by Mark Myers in size 40 Lizbeth Lilac Dk. Knobby Snowflake from Christmas Angels and Other Tatting Patterns by Monica Hahn in size 40 Lizbeth Rainbow Taffy and Lemon Yellow. All of these have gone into coasters. Then there's Mary's butterfly done in size 40 Lizbeth Rainbow Taffy. She was so addicted to the butterfly that she did it again in size 40 Lizbeth Peacock Blues and another in size 100 Rainbow Bright HDT from Tatskool.
