Flowers, Angels, Bookmarks, Snowflakes, Motifs, Pendants and Butterfly

Jane's granddaughter needed a new book bag for school and she couldn't resist adding a tatted dangle to it. Jane's Millie Millipede was tatted in large size 10 thread, so she's calling it Charlene Chongololo.
Margaret tatted Leens Tatted Angel in Lizbeth Christmas Delight No 20 but she wasn't satisfied with it, so she did it again adding a round ring for the head. She did another Flowering Quatrain Bookmark by Joelle in Lizbeth Butterfly Breeze No 20. The Spiral Bookmark was tatted in Lizbeth white and Butterfly Breeze no 20 from a pattern posted on Intatters that was adapted from an edging in Tatting Doilies and Edgings. The Fluffy snowflake, designed by Wally Sosa was tatted in Oren Bayan Koton Perle no 8 in variegated blue and white.
Marie spruced up an old filigree heart pendant tatting around it in Lizbeth, size 40, Latte Foam which is a gently shaded variegate. That makes it 25 for Marie.
Nancy Tatted the Gloria's pattern for the Little Black Dress sachet, but her sewing skills aren't as good as her tatting so making the sachet is a bit of a challenge. Part of a motif was used as a decoration on a ball cap and attached with liquid stitch. She used 20 gauge wire to make hooks to hang some of her finished tatted pieces.
Ancolie has been away from home so she hasn't had time for tatting, so when she got back home she caught up by doing these pieces.
Diane has another purple snowflake done and she can't seem to stop tatting in purple.
Fox, meanwhile, can't seem to get enough Lavender & Lace from Tatting Doilies and Edgings made with Krystle's Wisteria Lane HDT. She also did another apple/pumpkin and as usual this one seems to look better than her first rendition. She thinks her colour choice for the Tat Along has too much yellow, so it will be going for a face lift. A take off on Frivole's "cherries" and some free form tatting resulted in this little motif that helped to use up the yellow on her shuttles. She wanted to try out some not quite closed rings which she thinks is an interesting technique in the right location.
Jess tatted this motif in her new colourway which will either be called Sea Glass or Beach Glass, as soon as she makes her mind up.
Sherry's lovely little flutter is posted to let everyone know about her giveaway.
Wanda decorated a little bucket covering over a painted logo with green paint and adding a double layer motif in Lizbeth #638, Christmas Green in size 20. The bottom layer had silver beads added and filled with candy it made a great gift for her boss.

Hi, Sharon,
You do have a way with words. A chuckle this evening; thank you.
