Earrings, Motifs, Doily, Edgings, Pegasus, Butterfly and Collar
Jane has tatted some red and black flamenco earrings, or at least that's what her husband calls this hyperbolic tatting. Rings thrown off the SCMRs of these interlocking rings are the basis for this motif done in Coats, size 20 thread.
Diane is working on Round VII of Doily VI from Tatted Treasures by Jan Stawasz which isn't quite as simple as she thought it would be. She needed something simple as a break from it and tried Tatted Edging 1405-34T from the Coats book of Edgings. she likes Tatted Edging 1405-35T more.
Marie rediscovered a vintage silk hanky with a delicate gold tatted edge that she received from a dear old friend.
Martha continues to work on her new book, with many revisions of course. Is that Pegasus I see?
Sherry has been designing a 1920's style headdress named "Empress" and made them into full kits which are available in her Etsy shop. She also has an assortment of new hand painted ceramic shuttles ready.
Sue acquired 6 new tatting books and thought that this design, the start of a pattern called Blue Doily would make an awesome suncatcher. She has been working the antique triangle pattern into a new design. The central motif is done in size 20 Lizbeth Snow White, which she has "hand-dyed" with permanent fabric markers to make her Confetti thread. The outer triangles have been joined into diamond shapes using size 20 Lizbeth Lilac Dk. She tatted this butterfly for a little distraction, but she thinks she needs to pay closer attention to the length of the picots.
Wanda is planning a collar for a vest using Garden 10 Nazli Gelin in size 10 white. A slight miscalculation proved to be serendipitous and is working out nicely.
