Easter Egg, Clovers, Hearts, Motifs, Necklaces, Doilies, Letter and TIAS,

JB used Raspberry Ripple with Vanilla HDT by Tatskool for this egg from Tatted Easter Eggs by Kirsten Wind Hansen.

Frivole found Mariya's tatted clover to be perfect. An In Tatters' member made her Happy Heart tatted with a tiny flower in the centre and it gave the centre a lovely heart shape.

Lelia was delighted to find the Cathy B had made a pincushion with her Mom's tatting.

Anita used a chopping mat to create a usable double bobbin shuttle.

Prabhjyot wanted to use Jane Eborall's Winsome Drop earrings as a Valentine's day gift for her daughter's teacher but once she got started she decided to create a matching necklace to go with them.

Marta's newest creation is a sunburst of egg yolk yellow in a sea of carnelian.

Linda is over the moon to win first place at the CQ Quilts Are Quilts Too Show World Wide Competition. It's a gorgeous quilt with tatting accents of course.

Bonnie has been using more of her stash like the size 30 Peaches 'n Onions from Yarnplayer that she had left on her shuttles and worked perfectly for Nancy Tracy's Tatted Rose Heart.

Diane used a 4" cotton center and Yarnplayer's "Forest" in size 20 for the Norma Benporath edging to create this doily.

Fox decided that her Catherine Wheel joins weren't very good so she tried them again. Then next sample was better, but still not what she's hoping for. So she took a break and tatted a something different from the book by Taiko Fujito.

Kat is working on the letter "Z" to make a wedding present for a friend.

Kelly has been busy with knitting and crocheting baby gifts for family members, but she did find enough time to tat a doily from a book she won on ebay using size 20 HDT from Karey Solomon called "Willows by the water".

Martha has joined the Tat Along and chose to make her flowers like the original pattern with the lock joins down to the base of the rings because it has such an interesting effect. She has also posted her TIAS results a very vibrant yellow goat with a bright red nose.

Marty used Lizbeth size 40 thread for this doily from the DMC Book of Charted Tatting Designs. All of the picots are separated by 3 ds and she thinks it makes for a hairy doily, so she's thinking of doing it again without the picots, as soon as she can find the misplaced book.
