Crosses, Shamrocks, Easter Eggs, Edging, Errings, Motifs, Snowflakes, Doilies, Bookmark and Heart

Marie tatted crosses from Lene Bjorn's Tatted Bookmarks. Maria was done in size 10 thread in white with an iridescent filament, and gold, with a gold filament. Christina was tatted in size 80 in peach colours of Star thread. Monica was tatted in size 80 in Lizbeth Wildflower Garden. Camilla was done in size 80 in pink and purple Star thread. Malene was tatted in size 80 in pink and purple Star thread.

JB posted a lovely St Patrick's Day Shamrock. Egg #16 from Tatted Easter Eggs is made from Lizbeth Pink Cocoa.

Frivole tatted this pretty butterfly border pattern from Occhi Schiffchenspitze Frivolité by Marianne Langwieser and Tatiana Scharowa in Altin Basak 50 in colour 3053.

Lelia shares some tatted shamrocks for St Patrick's Day. The first is Irish for a Day pattern designed by Sherren from her blog at Sherren's Random Stitches. The second is Lucky Seven Shamrocks pattern from Gina Brummett, Threads of a Tatting Goddess.

Jess started with the idea of tatting a butterfly, but then it seemed it was a dragonfly, but it turned out to be a bumble bee.

Jessica tatted some earrings that are simple clovers joined by a chain, but it lacked a little something. She did another variation adding a large single ring to give it a little more splash. The thread was some vintage glace thread from the American Thread Company that she found in a box of stuff at the thrift store.

Kristen is still tatting from Lyn Morton's book Tatting Patterns. This is the Five Point Snowflake in yellow and blue and Simplicity in white. I know I saw Lyn Morton's 4-petal Peggy that Kristen did in February, but a quick check back doesn't show it here, so I must have missed posting it, so here it is.

IsDihara tatted Regal Snowflake by La Cossette Is'Dihara in Lizbeth size 20 Snow White #601 with pale blue Swarovski crystals and blue seed beads.

Bree has finished the 3rd row of her doily and she can't decide if she wants to change colours for this row or stay with ecru.

Diane loves the Sulky blendables and while they might not look wonderful on the spool, they look lovely tatted up in Kersti's Stumpy. She tatted a few more in shades of yellow and shows off the shuttle with -I love Books- on the back, which is really appropriate for a librarian. After all of this trying out of threads she has more tatting to send off to Chris at The Shuttle Shop.

Fox tatted Pattern by Karey Solomon pattern in Lizbeth Thread size 40 and it's a perfect St Patrick's day heart. The edge on the egg didn't look right and had to be
re-tatted when cutting the edge also cut through a picot. The solution was to make the picots shorter. Finally the edging looks scalloped just like the book cover.

Kathy has created a display of green items including a pendant made from a Rosemarie Peel design) that she put on one of her black velvet discs and attached to a beaded necklace.

Kelly has her next project ready to go using some Karey Solomon size 20 HDT called Season changing.

Sherry tatted this little snowflake from Jon Yusoff's Tatted Snowflakes Collection book.
