Motifs, Doilies, Snowflakes, Headdresses and Cross
Nancy has tatted her first motif from Occhi Schiffchenspitze Frivolite by by Marianne Langwieser and Tatiana Scharowa, but her long term goal is to tat the peacock on the cover.
Diane is enjoying Round VII of Doily VI from Tatted Treasures by Jan Stawasz.
Fox used some red/orange thread from Marilee with some green Anchor thread from Orsi to tat this motif from Tatting with Anne Orr, although the instructions were not right and she thought it would be easy to adjust. She first tried Jane's Twirly - 6 sides - with a #80 thread, the green and orange but the fine thread confounded her. The next try in blue #20 and matched with a #30 was better. Yarnplayer’s Dark Hydrangea felt like silk and was matched up with lilac Olympus #40 in this finished Twirly. She did the next one in Karey Solomon's HDT #30 and Cebelia #30.
Jess has another thread colour ready, this one is named String Bean.
Margaret was asked to make 12 snowflakes and the pattern chosen was one from Anna. Here's a close up, then the first five and the last seven.
Mica liked the snowflake done with blue beads so much that she did it again with green beads.
Orsi has another week's worth of hyperbolic tatting completed.
Sherry has created a new tatted headdress called Athena. Her earlier design, Empress is being modeled by her charming daughter.
Sue used the findings she bought along with beads to create this piece which started out square, but ended up round.
Wanda used Oren Bayan Koton Perle size 8 thread in a brown-to-tan variegated, color #187 to tat up this cross.
