Snowflakes, Ornaments, Motifs, Doily, Earrings, Pendant and Bookmarks

Jane shares some snowflakes she tatted last year. These are Jane Eborall's 2004 snowflake.

Ginny tatted an assortment of ornaments as gifts the tatting is draped over clear balls and festooned with an assortment of whimsical Christmas charms. Can you imagine ornaments like this featuring charms suited to the recipient like sports, golfing, baseball, fishing etc. It would be a great gift for the hard to tat for men on out lists.

Jessica picked up a box of these one inch ornaments last year and she's just getting around to doing something with them now. Pretty and petite.

Christmas preparations have left Ancolie little time to tat, but she has finished this, the inner part of Marilee's Arches doily.

Bree wasn't following a pattern when she made this snowflake Size 20, Lizbeth, ecru which her 4 year old granddaughter likes because it looks "fuzzy".

Fox had to snip out a lot of the 13th row as the beads distracted from the flow of the design. It's nearing the 20 inch mark now.

Jess' daughter is following in her footsteps, creating her own unique colourway. This one is called Livi's Ballet Shoes and Jess used it to tat her Starflower design in size 40.

Marie shows us her little 18" Christmas tree with all of her baubles and tatsmithing, from her three books. Little buttons she found at Walmart were done in pearl cotton #12. A single earring, found in the estate sale jewelry box was converted into a pendent with pearl cotton #12.

Mica's new motif for the challenge is Glittering Snowflake from Tatted Snowflakes by Vida Sunderman made with Kreinik braid No. 4.

Michelle added Elizabeth Zipay's and Decoromana's little snowflake patterns to some needle cases for her tatting club.

Wanda likes to tat a new snowflake each year, but she gets bored doing the same one over and over. The red and blue are this year's snowflake and the green one is Betsy Snowflake by Betsy Evans. The bookmarks were gifts for the pastor and his wife and the girls in her Sunday School class.
