Earrings, Dragon, Teapot, Bookmarks, Doilies, Edging, Heart, Critters, Motifs and Leaves

Marie used two strands of Coats Metallic silver thread to encase these apple green cats eye stones for a pair of earrings. She used with one strand of YLI thread to make Anne Bruvold's familiar dragon and attached it to a shirt. her favourite teapot, from Martha Ess's Teapot book tatted in Lizbeth's Scottish Thistle size 20 was added to a pocket.
Cindy is thrilled that she has been able to tat with sewing thread, although in her excitement she attached the tassel to the wrong end of this cross and needs to re-do that part.
Denise tatted Network from Mary Konior's book, Tatting With Visual Patterns and it's so much prettier in the Lizbeth size 20 #607 Charcoal Med & #633 Purple Dk than in the plain vanilla white model in the book.
Diane tatted Stumpy in Sulky Blendables, Storm Clouds colour and it might have been the name, but she didn't enjoy tatting this one.
Fox is trekking ever onward with the Crown of Thorns edging she's doing for a hanky and belatedly remembering that a standard hanky is 11 inches along each side which needs about 44 inches of tatting to go around it. She has become re-acquainted with Valdani thread size 12 in some brighter colours and so far so good. The edging grows -slowly. Old Fashioned Heart designed by Etha Schuette in Valdani #12.
Frances tatted lots of Jane Eborall's doodles, Scorpion, Seahorse, Fish, Turtle and Snake to send to her cousin, who is a caretaker on a private tropical island in North Queensland, for his son.
Frivole is also tatting a hanky edging to give her a break from the butterfly doily that takes a lot more concentration.
IsDihara a jolt to her back when the hounds yanked on the leashes and she just HAD to lay down and tat on the holiday weekend. She tatted Mary Konior's Anniversary Motif from Tatting with Visual Patterns in Lizbeth size 20 Country Kitchen. The Very Small Butterfly by Jane Eborall used up the last 1 1/2 yards on a shuttle tatted in Lizbeth size 20 Summer Breeze. Fuschia Frivolit√© size 20 from Shuttle Lab Trends - dept 11 was purchased during Palmetto Tat Days 2011 and she has been holding it in reserve for a special project. It pairs well with Lizbeth®20 Boysenberry Dark for Maus' Old Fashioned Heart.
Jess has the fourth row of Maynard's Granny Afghan completed. The colours are Row 1: Pink Lemonade, Esmeralda, Aurora, Lizbeth Lemon Yellow and Camolicious. Row 2: Lizbeth Seagreen Light, "a nameless autumn mix", Pastel Rainbow, Rainbowlicious, and Rustic Blue. Row 3: Mindanao Gum, Torch Lily, Peacock, Pitaya Limeade and Lizbeth Lime. Row 4: Royal Biscuit, Serendipity, Lizbeth Purple Md, Royal Biscuit, and Pinkaholic.
Kelly loves Marilee Rockley's Small Maple Leaf pattern. The larger one is done is Karey`s HDT in size 20 and the smaller one is done in Altin Basak (50) thread with white seed beads, which she plans on turning into earrings. Jane's Red Eye Tree frog was tatted in size 20 Lizbeth thread and she needed to adjust it a little for needle tatting.
StephanieGrace used Lizbeth size 20, 662 and 693 to make a Tatted Dreamcatcher from Margaret's Designer Cards Patterns.
Sue managed to burn her finger which put a halt to tatting things like a butterfly edging in the new Lizbeth Girly Girl. Or the sock edging in the new Lizbeth Scottish Thistle and several other things waiting in line.
Vanessa tatted this doily designed by Teiko Fujito and tatted in Altin Basak size 30. Now she needs to find a suitable place to display it.
Wanda designed and tatted this little Split Ring Cross that's worked in Lizbeth #601 Snow White in size 20 and she shares the pattern for it.
