Earrings, Heart, Doilies, Edging, Motifs, Bell, Bookmarks and Flower

Dreamn is new to tatting but she has decided to join the challenge with owl earrings from InTatters and Georgia Seitz' split ring heart.

Wooroosa has finally finished the Corona doily. She was a little worried about those chains, but it turned out beautiful.

Marie tatted a sample border called "Blue and White Edging", from Forty Original Designs in Tatting by Nellie Hall Youngburg in size 10 thread. The next border is from The Tatted Artistry of Teiko Fujito also done in size 10 crochet thread. Scalloped Edging #37 from Ann Orr's, Tatting is done in size 10 thread.

Nancy shares her very patriotic red white and blue flag from The Workbasket magazine tatted with Lizbeth size 20 thread. It took about 120 hours to complete and has polymer clay stars.

Diane started the Oval Doily from A New Twist on Tatting by Catherine Austin and gave up on it because the stitch count caused major rippling. The same pattern is also found in other publications with different stitch counts and discussion of the design on InTatters persuaded her to give it another try and she has her variation of the stitch count on her blog.

Fox has been spending a lot of time at the hostpital with her mum and tatting things like Posy by Mary Konior in #80 HDT Wisteria Lane from Krystle. She doesn't remember where this pattern comes from but it's done with the same thread paired up with a matching solid. A final tiny tat in the same colours using a Myra Piper pattern.

Frivole just had to know how Marie made the beaded shuttle bags and after Marie shared the pattern with her she had to give it a try. She didn't like how her first attempt worked so she tried it again and then added a ruffle to the next one. Very pretty.

Kathy added a red white and blue bow to a white bell she tatted in Cebelia DMC size 30.

Michelle made some red white and blue earrings for her sister using a pattern that's fairly common with some sensational thread. She is enchanted with Frivole's Flowering Quatrain Bookmark and her new favourite thread is Oliver Twist with delicate variegation.

Orsi created a pure silk satin top, decorated with tatted lace and Swarovski zircon beads.

has one more round and some blocking to do and this doily will be finished.

Tattabugg loves pansies and had to tat this one from the Priscilla tatting book. Mary Konior's Maid of Honor edging is being tatted in white size 80. The hummingbirds pattern is by Heather's Designs and she added red beads because she wanted a Ruby Throated Hummingbird like they have in their area.
