Bookmarks, Leaves, Earrings, Snowflakes, Flower, Bracelet, Angels and Ornaments

Stacy figures that with all of her recent tatting she has finished her first 25 motifs including these Cross "Hope" bookmarks done in Christmas colours. The leaves that were sprinkled on her Thanksgiving table looked wonderful, but she can't find the picture she took of it.

Heather has created a very simple hairclip with a tatted button and she shares the instructions with us.
Marta shows us her plum cake earrings made in December.

Patrycja has more snowflakes done. This fluffy flake is from Lene Bjorn's "24 Snowflakes in Tatting". This one by Magbod was actually done in October. This snowflake that adds zigzag tatting for texture is her 24th and it also comes from Lene Bjorn's book.

SunshineCraft is fixated on flowers and found these pearly flowers from Tatting Lace by Sumi Fujishige done in Anchor variegated perle cotton 8 were perfect for her cravings.

IsDihara tatted Kira's Star, designed by Birgit Phelps and tatted in Lizbeth® 20 Snow White #601 as a Secret Santa gift.

Linda completed a flag block for an international quilt that will be sold and the funds will help the victims of the Sendai Earthquake. Included among the flags is a tatted eagle, pattern from Nancy Tracy.

Bonnie tatted the Slalom Bookmark from Martha Ess' book Playing with Picots for her Christmas exchange

Alba Alicia is addicted to tatting this bracelet pattern in a variety of colours with different beads. It looks good in all of them.

Claudia received her InTatters exchange package from Anne Bruvold which included an assortment of lovely tatted snowflakes.

Diane's partner from the Tatting Forums Christmas exchange was Patti Duff who sent her an amazing package including a tatted lanyard.

Fox was inspired by Marty, so she pulled out some DMC #80 in red and green and her Myra Piper booklet to tat these designs. There are actually three different beads in this frilly piece, where she used JK's instead of rings at the top. Tatted in #30 Cébélia thread. She received a sample of Jess' HDT to try out and she used it in in a small Konior design paired up with some Majestic #80 green. The edging incorporates roll tatting which she hasn't done for a while.

Isa shows us some of the tatting she has done for Christmas including an assortment of tatted brooch names for her nieces and aunts worked from her own design.

Kathy found Lynn Morton's 'Hearts and Flowers' pattern was a perfect fit for the centre of the flower motif on this table runner. The Victorian lady with the tatted over skirt is a perfect complement to it.

Michelle did a lot of tatting in December including this little angel from Anne Bruvold,although she wanted a skinnier skirt so she modified it. Then there was the 3D ornament she saw on Jolimama's blog, but when she tried it, the results weren't quite the same, although it looked round it came out more like a marshmallow. She participated in the InTatters exchange and received some fantastic gifts, including a wee doll pincushion decorated with tatting. She tried out another beaded wreath, but it came out somewhat lumpy. Then there were lots of little flakes that she made for her sister. Margaret sent her a remarkable tatted cross, so now she has a tatted bookmark of her own.

Sue tried Anne's SSSR angel using split rings, but somehow it didn't quite work out.

Wanda has been tatting angels using her own design and sending them off to their new homes.

We all appreciate your hard work on the 25-Motif Challenge!

With this new photo system, it's amazing to 'roll' through the photo 'slide show'. The tatters of yesteryear would be delighted to see that tatting is alive and well - and thriving - in the 21st Century!
