Jane is still working with pearl tatting and tatted Mark Myers Elegant Heart. For the next challenge she used Georgia Seitz's Mignonette Stitch Review Lesson, but she wants to get the bare thread spaces equal before doing the split ring for the next round. The idea of making a string of hearts is Gina Butler's but she used folded rings instead of dimple rings and she's thinking of adding beads between the hearts to make a dangle that will hang well.
Lelia received this lovely bookmark in the mail from Denise. It's Jon's heart pattern with a row of split rings added to make a bookmark.

Fox had to snip out a mistake on the Honey Napkin and here's how it looks now. She has decided to add some bright red beads she was sent on this row. Honey Napkin boredom has produced the seedlings of a new design and the desire to work with bugle beads and Victorian Sets.
