Motifs, Gecko, Doilies, Bracelet, Necklaces, Angel, Snowflakes, Bookmarks, Leaf, Edging, Earrings and Ornaments,

Cheryl's newest creation is a tatted ring and while waiting for her size 40 thread to arrived she tatted it in size 20 Lizbeth thread white and Autumn orange, but size 20 is a bit overpowering.
Jane appliqued her geckos to a food cover that she made with a machine embroidered border.
Ginny has finished her Norma Benporath Lace Mat in Lizbeth 175 Scottish thistle and 632 med purple.
Jessica finished up the samples for the Shuttlebirds Tatting conference that has 4 shuttles going at once so it’s not very portable. She also did another quick bracelet with a bit of thread left on a shuttle using an edging pattern from one of the Priscilla books.
Marta created this necklace and like an old fashioned movie, it's in black and white.
Nancy participated in an exchange in the Tatting group and received, among other things, a tatted bracelet and a tiny tatted angel.
Linda has been busy tatting for Christmas exchanges.
Cindy has always had trouble figuring out how to change a traditional pattern with rows that are done cut and tie to a more modern one that climbs out with split rings, so she's proud of this Minaret Snowflake from Tatted Snowflakes by Vita Sunderman where climbing out seemed to come naturally. She has been testing out the new Aerlit shuttles from Handy Hands and so far they are proving to be comparable to the old Aero shuttles.
Diane tatted another snowflake in Lizbeth Azalea Med with a finding in the middle and is finding pink snowflakes really attractive. She used her new Aerlit shuttle to tat this pendant in size 20 Lizbeth, Purple Dk #633 and finds that it's lovely to work with like the old Aeros, the bobbin actually fits on the knurled back and the clicking of the bobbin indicates that the tensioning is right. Another Azalea Med Doodad Snowflake was completed and she'll soon have a set of six. She tatted Christina from Tatted Bookmarks ~ Cross-Shaped by Lene Bjorn in yellow for the mother-in-law of a friend, whose husband passed away this past week. The same pattern was done in size 80 Lizbeth, Turquoise Twist #142 for her friend. Here is snowflake 5 of 6 in Lizbeth Azalea Med.
Fox is taking needed breaks from the little motifs she is doing for the Snowflake Napkin by tatting this Jan Stawasz design in size 20 Lizbeth. Renulek's Snowflake Napkin is up to Row 5 and it's the largest thing she's ever tatted done in Ladytat's Grandmother's vintage thread, in an unfamiliar palette. She was intrigued with this leaf of Karey’s from this month’s Tatting Times called the Globetrotting Bookmark the leaf of which was tatted with Ladytat’s thread.
Isdihara is really pleased with how her Norma Benporath Lace Mat is coming along.
Jess used her Orange Messy Jess!-y to tat this simple edging she was working on, it might end up being called Dreamsicle. She tatted this more complex edging in her size 60 Young Hearts HDT and each flower takes over a yard of thread. here's a variation of the same design done in Messy Jess!-y Peachy Coral HDT, paired with Lizbeth's Periwinkle.
Marie combines natural stones with tatting in forms she calls Tatsmithing and shows us the assortment of completed works that are destined for her first show. The finding used on this pendant was discoveed in a geo cache and the tatting is done in Lizbeth, size 20, Falling Leaves.
Michelle used the pattern that was modified by Jane from South Africa to make a bracelet for her daughter. This is Marilee Rockley's Hydrangea Dark and Frivole's Flowering Quatrain.
Orsi thinks it's a shame to throw away Christmas cards after the holiday, so she made some 2 in 1 cards that are both cards and keepsakes with tatted pendants or earrings like these snowflakes with pearl and brown beads.
Sue has tatted a blizzard of snowflakes and in the top picture are (top left) Minta Pattern by Orsi,tatted in Lizbeth size 10 Snow White; (top right) Cloverleaf Snowflake from the book Tatted Snowflakes by Vida Sunderman tatted in size 3 white with glitter; (middle left) Flower Snowflake from the same book tatted in size 40 Lizbeth Angel's Love. January Reflections (middle right) by Lenore English is also tatted in size 40 Lizbeth Angel's Love; (bottom) is Layered Tatted Snowflake from Nancy Tracy tatted in size 20 Lizbeth Blue Ice. The there are 8 Lavender & Lace inspired # 3 snowflakes designed by Sue tatted in Lizbeth size 20 Christmas Delight, and Blue Ice. Then there are many snowflakes that either were too small for the request, or they had mistakes in them. The small ornament was inspired by one of the snowflakes she did.
Tattabugg was commissioned to make four pairs of earrings for a friend in selected colours of blue and black and two maybe colors of purple and green, so these are the samples she did. She tatted this necklace using DMC size 12 and turquoise beads in size 11. While she's deciding on a tatted doily she's been making snowflakes.
