Necklaces, Snowflakes, Bookmarks, Doilies, Motifs and Basket

Jane did another necklace using only one colour and lost the X and O effect. She's working on earrings to go with it. She added bugle beads to this choker and she'll have to concentrate as she weaves the red foundation row through the ring before closing.


Nancy tried out Lizbeth's Cranberry Bush for these snowflakes  for her eldest daughter's Christmas tree, using online patterns.

Linda made CQ cards for some people and will tuck inside an angel and bookmark.


Ancolie tatted Mary Konior's Filet pattern in DMC 80.

Cindy has finished round 2 of the Jan Stawasz doily after starting it twice. Several people have said that his diagrams are confusing.

Diane is working on her latest Spinning Wheel glass mat and although she has lost the tag, she thinks the name of this Marilee Rockley HDT is Gold Dust.  The motif is Flower Fragment from A Pattern Book of Tatting by Mary Konior done in a pale pink, size 20 Lizbeth #621.


Fox really enjoyed tatting the centre of this design from a Danish Magazine, which she tried two ways. It was the outer round that she found trying. This little motif by Elgiva Nicholls is pretty small and is very tight between the elements so that you can barely see the twisted picots.



IsDihara used Lizbeth size 20 #156 Juicy Watermelon to tat Susanne Schwenke's triangle motif.

Jess finished the raspberry round of the wedding doily and now she's working on one in cream and daffodil. She started another round in Lizbeth size 40 silver but she has just about run out, needing only about 5 more yards and she can't find the ball. Can anyone help?


Marie tatted the Split Ring Cross by Wendy Durrel in Lizbeth, size 20, Leaf Green Med and Tropical Punch. The mixing of the colours in Leaf Green Med and Ecru gave this one a Celtic effect.


Mica likes this snowflake so much she couldn't resist tatting it with one strand of DMC metallic floss.

Michelle has mastered interlocking rings with a shuttle, now to figure out what to do with it. This lovely HDT thread was used to make a basket from an old Tatsy pamphlet.


Wanda stitched rows of thread onto this cloth to hang tatting from. Then it was draped over a cardboard box to create and instant display case for the craft show. Unfortunately after all the work involved the sales were dismal due to the weather, the location and a poorly planned event.
