Doily, Bookmarks, Edging, Motifs, Necklaces, Earrings, Heart, TIAS and Dragon

Frances has some new tatting completed. The Merriment doily and the foldover bookmark, both designed by Jon Yusoff. Her first Milward shuttle and the little hook it came with are shown here with a hanky edging #6622 from Traditional Tatting Patterns done in Coats size 100. After learning how to tat she decided to make edgings for a christening robe and started on edging No. 52 on page 22 in 'Tatting Patterns' in size 100 Coats and it was done in time for the christening in 1991 of her sister's baby. There are detailed pictures on her blog.

Jess hand dyed thread in a combination called Rustic/Blue and used it for the cross from Tatting Patterns and Designs by Gun Blomqvist and Elwy Persson.
Garyo is finding that like most of us when we're tired, we wind shuttles, get to work, and then find mistakes. The only thing worse, is finding a mistake made waaaay back.

Jessica is tackling the large tea cloth in the Priscilla book also in the Tatting Patterns book edited by Julia Sanders. A number of people have tried this pattern and everyone I know of has had some issues with it.

Marta has a lovely new necklace and earring design ready in luscious honey colour.

Diane had to try Heart's Desire one more time and she joined the small free ring to the edge ring closest to it, which seemed to work for her.

Michelle has day 5 of the TIAS done ans she doesn't have a clue as to what it is, but she's enjoying tatting it. Kersti's bookmark was interesting and fun once she decided to follow the pattern instead of trying it her own way.

Wanda tatted Paprika the dragon with birds and butterflies and flowers to add to an insulated cup for her grandson. He likes it so much he hasn't used anything else since he got it. She's also had time to tat day 5 of TIAS and she's as mystified as everyone else as to what it could be.
