Snowflakes, Motifs, Necklace, Dragon, Flower, Cross, Ornaments and Butterfly

Heather has scouted out some very simple snowflake designs that beginners can use.
Julie has also tatted Mary Konior's Posy with beads because it's such a pretty pattern and adding beads makes an adorable Christmas design.
Jessica has finished tatting the motif for her belt in yarn and shows it together with the first sample done in size 10 for comparison.
Marta used a matte smooth gray pebble from the river in this piece making an interesting and special necklace.
Patrycja is tatting more snowflakes. The first one is by Renulka, then two by Magbod and finally one by Jon Yusoff.
Fox thought she should practice the SSSR before tackling Anne's dragon, but in the end she opted for ordinary split rings in DMC #80 Red. In spite of her frustration with the directional changes, the end result is a wonderful dragon.
Gina used a sample of the Pink Cocoa in Lizbeth the Jane Eborall sent her to tat her Beginner's Beaded Blossom Brooch.
Kat tatted my Grace Snowflake for the Christmas exchange at InTatters which made her 25th motif. She has plans to start again after the baby arrives. The cross on the right is needle tatted and the part started on the left is that same design that she is shuttle tatting. The shuttle tatting always works out smaller because it is worked directly on the thread.
Kathy found a pretty ellipsoid ornament in Michaels that was perfect for displaying tatting. A little lace, a little flower, a little ribbon and one spectacular ornament.
Marty has another tatted ornament completed from green snowflakes from the Ariel pattern in The Tatter's Treasure Chest that were waiting until she had the time to tat the centre band.

Michelle has joined with others and tatted Mary Konior's Posey with beads.

Orsi was practicing loop tatted rings and created this snowflake. She's not really happy with the results so she plans on tweaking it.
Sherry has another niece on the way and as a special gift she has added a tatted butterfly and the family name in tatting to a baby afghan. Lucky baby. Sherry also has some special silver shuttles available that would make spectacular Christmas gifts.

Wendy tatted these Christmas Medallions designed by Nancy Tracy from Be-stitched for Christmas swaps.
