Motifs, Edgings, Doily, Snowflakes, Bookmarks, Frog and Angel

Jess has posted her very first tatted bits from when she was learning a butterfly and section of edging. Then there is this piece that she did without making note of the source which is 10 inches long and done in "braiding cord".

Heather has pulled out a WIP that's sat unfinished for years just waiting to have the ends hidden and blocked. Her best tatting ever is a beautiful cap with beaded rosettes in the centre and around the edge.

Michelle thought this motif would make a lovely bracelet, but now she's not too sure. Part of the problem is that it's had an unexpected tea bath. She admired a motif Gina whipped up and had to give it a try. This little snowflake is one she saw on Decoromana's blog.

Anika made the Tatted Bookmark by Nancy Tracy at be-stitched as a gift for the bishop.

Tattabugg created Mary Konior's cross bookmark from Tatting with Visual Patterns and the snowflake from the book 24 Snowflakes in Tatting by Lene Bjorn in size 80 thread. The Red-eyed Green Tree Frog by Karen Bickerton was tatted in Lizbeth size 20 in Leaf Green and Harvest Orange and it's a perfect size for a bookmark.

Bree has another yo-yo done with a tatted border. She's having so much fun doing yo-yos that she did another in ecru colored fabric and Lizbeth green leaf, size 20 for the edging with a pretty gold button in the middle.

Fox used thread by Tatskool to tat this snowflake with loop tatted rings by Bina, but she found it very fiddly. She used Valdani size 12 to tat Karey's Leaf bookmark. Jon's "Mirage" snowflake was also tatted with #12 Valdani, but she's decided she doesn't care for the thread. Orsi's pattern seems to be in hiding so Fox downloaded so Fox downloaded the one form Frivole's blog and she has started it in Lizbeth size 20. It was such an enjoyable tat that she has plans to do it again in red. She has discovered that a design in a recently purchased book looks a lot like one that she has already tatted in size 80 DMC thread.

Gina is continuing her exploration of vintage patterns with Figures 18 and 19 of Plate III and again she has included stitch count on the photos. Figures 20 and 21 of Plate III finish her 25 motifs and on the last one she has included even more detail on her blog. The group picture shows all the lovely laces. She used Manuela/Hakelgarn thread size 20 for the Praying Angel from Nine Tatted Angels by Monica Hahn but decided on some modifications for it.

Kelly has been doing interlocking chain-ring centers for these snowflakes using size 10 thread with beads and she's made about 20 of them so far.

Lily has done a how-to on making her tatted hairclips.
