Necklaces, Earrings, Doilies, Snowflakes, Hearts, Edging and Bracelet,

Jane took a picture of the finished necklace using the mirror. The thread is Little Boy Blue from Jess at Tat-ilicious.
Marie shows her stash of tatted earrings. Grandma's single earring had the post cut off and a tatted edging done in pearl cotton #12 to make a pendant.
Lelia managed to tat a motif using size 20 LizBeth fiber, color 663 from Patti Duff's Mini Tats while with the Tollway Tatters.
Marta created another necklace all of twisted chains and chunky beads in fall colours. Then she did a similar necklace in dramatic black and white.
SunshineCraft is working on the The Norma Benporath lace mat attaching her pre-done clovers as she tats the last round.
Cindy has finished round 3 of Norma Benporath's Mat and she's taking her time with it.
Diane has three more snowflakes done in Victorian Red and it's really putting her in the mood for Christmas. Since she had some thread left on the shuttles she did this one in Victorian Red and Christmas Delight, but she's not sure if she likes the colours together. Purple has never been a favourite colour but it's grown on her.
Fox had another go at Karey's heart and she thinks the result is much better. Then she did it again but can't seem to achieve the results she wants. The edging on the other hand is coming along. She took Mosaic, one of Karey Solomon's designs and to avoid cut and tie, changed the pattern to include not only a split chain and split ring to go from the first part to the second, but also a whole new chain element and she's quite proud of the results.
Jess is still working on her bracelet and used a pattern from Vicki Clarke's book Tatting the Stone as the focal point, but she thinks she'll tweak things a little. Jess asked Pamela (Totusmel) to tat some bracelets using her HDT and these are what she received along with some matching pendants.
Kathy had a new ball of Lizbeth Size 20, Autumn Spice that just had to be made up into Rachel Jackson's Pumpkin Pie pendant, or at least the initial star shape of it. Just to prove she can actually tat beads into her motifs, here are some star motifs where all the beads (except the center ones) are tatted in using Lizbeth size 20, Spring Garden thread.
Martha had fun at Tat days and was photographed wearing her gorgeous tatted hat.
Orsi had added beading to her tatting and has the patterns for sale on her blog. She is also showing some pictures of how she adds the beads.
Sue tatted around 10 feet of garland, here's a close up. Star of Leaves from the book Christmas Angels and Other Tatting Patterns by Monica Hahn is tatted in size 40 Lizbeth Sea Island Citrus. The motif from the Lavender & Lace table set in the book Tatting Doilies & Edgings edited by Rita Weiss is tatted in size 40 Lizbeth Royal Blue. The sadly misshapen Star of Leaves done for her granddaughter has been straightened out and mounted on a hook for hanging. The Lavender & Lace motif inspired her to do a snowflake version with a finding tatted in size 20 Lizbeth Christmas Delight.
