Earrings, Bonnet, Necklaces, Motifs, Bookmarks, Doilies, Teapot and Bracelet

Cigdem has decided to join the challenge and her first pieces are a pair of chandelier earrings.

Carrie has been working on a baby bonnet for her girlfriend who is expecting, using a pattern from NIN which she didn't realize was sized for a preemie baby, so she'll need some help re-sizing it. She has also done Ripple necklaces by Marilee Rockley in Aunt Lydia's size 10 black and Mexicana for the twins, her Mom and her sister.

Barbara tatted a design from Jon Yusoff's Elegant Tatting Gems which called Mustika in Lizbeth size 20 #637 Country Grape, Med.

Mistene used Lizbeth No. 20, color 621, Dusty Rose Light to tat Zamrud, which came out smaller than some of the others. Almas was done in Lizbeth No. 20, color 644, Boysenberry Dark.

Jane has more bookmarks done and the last batch used a classic pattern she's done before. She now has 20 completed, a few more than were commissioned, but she wanted a little leeway.

Nancy tatted a "mini" version of Mary Konior's Spinning Wheel Glass Mat in Lizbeth size 20 Leaf Green Med and Pistachio Green Lt., for a friend who wanted a smaller, coaster size, design.

Fox added some picots to the Josephine knots and suddenly had a pretty motif. Another motif she has been working on is a Jan Stawasz design which is being tatted in #40 Lizbeth. Frivole suggested adding a white chain to Fox' design and it really made it pop. She also had to try out this design by Corina Meyfeldt with the unusual bead placement. Here is Fox' design re-worked and tatted by Ladytats is size 80 DMC.

Marie liked the pink and grey colours she was working with and tatted the design again switching the colours.

Martha received so many requests for her Celtic Button Teapot Pattern that it's now available in her Etsy shop.

Sue got lots of practice making SSSRs doing this piece in size 40 Lizbeth Lilac Dk. and Lizbeth Caribbean. Then she wove one chain through the other. It wasn't large enough for the bracelet she wanted, but it was good practice. She tatted the center of the Flower Burst doily from the book Ultimate Book of Tatted Doilies in size 60 Flame Lantana from Tatskool.
