TIAS, Snowflakes, Motifs, Necklaces, Bookmarks, Dragons, Heart, Leaf, Butterflies and Doilies

Mariya has just discovered the challenge and she wants to join. Her first entry is Nancy Tracy's tatted pawprint for which she used Iris thread. She also discovered Jane's TIAS and she has day 3 done.

Laurette has joined the challenge again and has tatted the 10th Day of December snowflake from 24 Snowflakes in Tatting by Lene Bjorn.

Ginny has more snowflakes to show. Jon Yusoff's Quantiesque Snowflake and Kira's Star by Birgit Phelps.

Garyou tatted Marilee's Carnival design from Tatted Jewelry and used it as a bag charm. She was looking for a motifs to tat and join together and make something large, but this one from Crochet and Tatting Lace by YOKOHAMA Kayomi wasn't what she was looking for. Here are a couple of motifs with he favourite GR8 shuttle.

Marta has created an amazing necklace with a large stone surrounded by tatting in an elaborate setting.

Bonnie is on a mission to Use It Up. There's no point in saving stash for a special occasion that never comes and leaving family members to get rid of our treasures. So Bonnie is de-stashing and using her supplies beginning with Kersti's Floral bookmark done in Lizbeth Tropical Punch size 40 and the middle one is Sea Island Citrus also in size 40.

Claudia has day 3 of TIAS done along with some tatted crosses. The Easy Tatted Cross by Rachael Mohler, and from the Book Tatted Bookmarks by Lene Bjorn, Maria tatted with DMC perle cotton thread 8, in white and the last one Camilla tatted with Clea cotton variegated thread.

Fox loves this pattern by Julie Patterson in the HDT from Jess which was a perfect break from dragons. This one is done and finished correctly, so now she has 3 ready to wing their way off to The Big Apple. She's discovered that while findings appeal to her, combining them with just the right design can be a challenge, but this one makes a perfect bookmark. Frivole has diagrammed Irene's pattern and Fox couldn't resist giving it a try both with the solid colour inside and again with it outside for 2 totally different looks.

Gina tatted the ginko leaf by Yarnplayer in an unlabeled Lizbeth size 20 thread, but one of her half moon rings turned back while blocking.

Martha picked up Tatted Butterflies by Adelheid Dangela at random and tatted the Elise butterfly which has a block tatted wing section that looks a lot like the bookmark she did previously. The colorful one is Lizbeth Autumn Spice plus a Manuela orange and the pale green one is Opera.

Michelle has her TIAS day 3 done and still no idea as to what she is tatting. Here are 2 bookmarks done. The heart is done in the Brazilian thread which is kind of slippery.

Sherry has day 3 of TIAS done although for a minute she almost forgot how to do an SCMR.

Stacy has the Spinning Wheel Glass Mat from Mary Konior's Tatting with Visual Patterns done in Lizbeth #113 Jewels size 20.

Tattabugg has day 3 of TIAS done. It's squarish and has beads coming, but what is it? Her daughter found this dragon which has been named Arsenic or "Snicky" for short and now she's on the lookout for more dragons.

Wanda also has day 3 of TIAS done and she's working in Lizbeth Victorian Red #670 size 20. She's working on this snowflake with beads and she'll post the results when she's done.
