Flowers, Doilies, Motifs, Butterflies, Snowflakes, Bracelet, Earrings, Necklaces, Edging, Heart, Collar and Angels

Jane made 10 flower dangles to give away when she teaches a group of ladies to tat and she has included the pattern for it on her side bar. She tatted Jane's butterfly in a variety of threads to show the ladies that they didn't have to use fine threads, and created a card with really simple motifs that they could try which seems to have been a success since they all learned the flip.
Tats loves Miranda's Angels In The Snow which she has done in size 20 Peacock Blues. YarnPlayers Points In Time in done in size 20 Everything Nice by Jess.
Margaret has finished the Tat Along of Norma Benporath's Lace Mat in Lizbeth size 20 Scottish Thistle which was diagrammed by Jon Yusoff. Fox sent her some thread and she tatted these butterflies. The first one is Mary Koniors butterfly from her book Tatting Patterns and the second Butterfly is Papillon by Frivole. Her first attempt was done in Lizbeth Blue River Glades in no 40 thread.
Marie found this pair of earrings in the clearance isle and tried to incorporate the scroll work from the disk when she tatted around it with Lizbeth, size 20, in Autumn Spice. She found this pendent at last years craft/antique show and it was tatted with Lizbeth, size 20, Autumn Spice and Leaf Green Med.
Lyn has tatted the Beaded Wreath By Helen Bailey done in Coats no 20 thread red with green beads. The Star of David Snowflake By Ruth Perry was tatted in Coats no 20 thread Veg purple. Cher's Ankle Bracelet By Cher Robinson was tatted in Coats no 20 thread multi colour with star shaped beads and Coats no 20 veg Pink with butterfly beads. Tatted Loopy Earrings By Nancy Tracy make her 24th motif, so she has only one more to go.
Lelia used size 40 Lizbeth thread color 646 for this Mini Tats design by Patti Duff, but the next one is a six pointed motif done in HDT from Yarnplayer that gave her a bit of trouble. She wasn't doing the RW at the same point, but she thinks she's got it now and she loves the thread. Another try and it looks even better. She received some Sulky Blendables thread from Diane and tried out a motif with it, doing it first in green size 50, then in the Sulky Blendables size 12 thread in colour 4088.
Marta used magnetic beads for this graphite set of necklace and matching earrings.
Diane has tatted more purple snowflakes and did a little research to find the Russia did have an incident of purple snow that was attributed to dust from Africa.
Fox tatted her modified Mosaic Heart from Karey Solomon with a longer chain for a very attractive result. She tried it again with some Altin Basik using a slightly shorter chain and it's looking good. The hanky edging is also coming along. She discovered another interesting find in a little shop that looks charming with navy tatting and pearl beads for accent. Here's Karey Solomon's Mosaic heart tatted with Altin Basak #50, with Fox's changes of an added centre chain of 12 ds. The finished hanky edging is Laurel, another one of Karey's patterns and she used blue Delica beads that match the bits of blue in the centre of the pink flowers.
Jess tatted her first card with tatting on it. She isn't into Halloween but she just had to do something with the skull beads.
Martha shows us a little of the tatting on display at Palmetto TatDays. She admired this piece, but can't remember who did it. Randy Houtz brought some really interesting 3D tatting. This heart is part of the Gina Tatting Goddess display. This vintage collar is really lovely. Lorena was Jane's assistant for the animal doodle class and proudly shows off the diorama she made with the sample projects for the class.
Mica finished all the Mini Tats a while back except for finishing the ends and now here they are Motifs 25-29.
Michelle received size 40 and 100, two of my favorites and she made Irene Woo's butterfly heart with it.
Orsi has a whole collection of tatted flower hairpins and she has added them to her shop.
Sue has several Lavender and Lace inspired snowflakes done in Lizbeth size 20 Blue Ice with central findings. Here are the other points turned into a snowflake, also tatted in size 20 Lizbeth Blue Ice. Two different patterns and a picture of a decorative pin were the inspiration for this angel.
Wanda finally got her idea of a fabric angel with tatted wings out of her imagination and into reality. She used denim fabric and Lizbeth white size 20 thread that was already on a couple of shuttles, except that one of them turned out to be ecru and not white. The prototype is adorable, but she wants to tweak a few details.
