Motifs, Bracelet, Earrings, Necklaces, Snowflakes and Doily

Tats made Kira's Star in Everything Nice HDT by Jess! and dark purple in Lisbeth size 20.

Marie did some sample borders for an altar cloth and this one called Scalloped Edging #37, done in size 10 thread from Ann Ore's, Tatting was selected. This daisy motif was done in White and Lizbeth Turquoise Twist size 20. The bracelet is Nina's pattern and the earrings, were adapted from the bracelet, tatted with DMC Embroidery Thread.

Prabhjyotsaini has been tatting more earrings. These black and white earrings were made following the pattern by Jennifer Williams.

Julie shows another of her grandmother's tatted pieces, a Bohemian style necklace with wooden beads.

Kirsten is thrilled with her fair results and the ribbons she received, a second for her coasters and a fourth place for her crown, especially since last year all she got was an honorable mention. Some of the other things she entered were some snowflakes from Festive Snowflakes & Ornaments For Needle and Shuttle Tatting edited by Barb Foster. She re-visited the blacksmith shop where the wife of the blacksmith sells the tatting she does and turned Kristen on to the joys of tatting. A class taken at the fair finally got her shuttle tatting and she went from some first time bits and pieces to a whole shuttle tatted motif.

Marty used two colors of purple Lizbeth size 20 thread and Marie Smith's method of doing split chains for this doily that won both Blue ribbon and an high blue sweepstakes ribbon.
