Bookmarks, Christmas tree, Hearts, Flowers, Doilies, Snowflakes, Necklace, Edging, TIAS, and Butterfly

JB shares some laces made by Gina- Threads of a Tatting Goddess. The tree ornament designed by Jane Eborall was tatted in Lizbeth #144 Leaf Swirl with red glass seed beads.

Lyn tatted the heart by Claudette Pomroy in size 20 Anchor Thread.

Mariya has made her patterns available using the links on her blog. She joined the Tat Along ans started with a single flower. She wanted to tat 4 flowers, 4 leaves and make a square of them. Then she tatted another flower in pink which looked different and another in red. Her husband decided to show off the flowers and leaves.

Laurette finished this piece using Lizabeth Mountain Breeze #134, Leaf Green Light #683 and Leaf Green Medium #684, but she's misplaced the pattern and doesn't know what it was supposed to be, so for now she's calling it a coaster.

Jess tried a new HDT and started a Stumpy bookmark from memory, but forgot precisely how the pattern went. Then she played around with her one shuttle chevron pattern to create a heart.

Heather shows one of the designs from Lyn Morton’s Christmas Book she made with Oren Bayan thread and beads. She has also included a video showing you how to block a project.

Jessica has more half circles done for the tea cloth. Now she has switched to the "real" tea cloth that she is doing in size 50 Flora. There are a lot of ends to hide because she was working mostly in the car or on the airplane where there was too much motion for sewing in ends.

Marta has another enchanting necklace design done in muted natural tones.

Linda has done a CQ birthday card for a friend which includes a little tatted heart.

Bonnie has been on a spree to use up her stash but just had to buy some size 30 HDT from Yarnplayer called Peaches 'n Onions to tat Jon's Heart 'o Daisies.

Carol participated in a Secret Santa exchange in 2005 and when her partner dropped out, Gina stepped in and did a special package for her. Just one of the many thoughtful things that Gina did through the years and why so many of us remember her fondly.

Cindy has been working on the Tat Along but was having trouble with the leaves. The she switched to some humongous size 3 thread and she could finally see what she was doing. Now she's going back to her size 40 brown thread that seems to be the only thing that blends well with her my Kopper Patina HDT.

Claudia posts her tribute to Gina, a heart full of tatted hearts.

Fox shares talking over tatting experiences with Gina like this piece that both of them tatted. She loves this Karey Solomon design which is both fiddly and challenging. She finally has this round done and is ready to go on to the next with beads.  Karey Solomon's pattern from Hearts Belong to Tatting is her newest favourite heart.

Kat shares her tribute to Gina. Thanks to Gina she was able to tat Irene Woo's Heart of the Butterfly.

Kelly remembers Gina, most especially her laugh, her smile and the warmth she shared with everyone.

Marty remembers Gina's giving spirit, her delightful blog posts and all of her encouraging comments.Her picture to accompany her thoughts shows tatted designs as flowers.

Michelle tatted Frivole's Iris edging to grace a hanky for a bride. She also did Frivole's Happy Heart.

Sherry has been having fun taking macro photos of tatting impressed into mugs and on shuttles.

Sue is delighted that the Sidekick doily from Elegant Tatting Patterns by Janet Carrol is done. She used size 10 Passionata in Aunt Lydia's thread and her daughter has already claimed it.

Vanessa finally realized when she was part way through her TIAS that she had one shuttle wound with blue size 30 and the second shuttle had been loaded with green size 20. It still ended up looking like a goat.

Wanda is another tatter that will be missing Gina. She posted the 'Southwest Butterfly' by Regina A. Brummet that she had tatted a few years ago from the pattern on Gina's blog.

Wendy introduces Billy Goat Gruff, her completed TIAS.
