Bookmarks, Butterfly, Doilies, Motifs and Bracelets

mb duke likes tatting bookmarks because they don't take long to do and it's easy to try out lots of different patterns. The first one is from Lene Bjorn's Tatted Bookmarks - Cross-shaped, done in size 40 Lizbeth Scottish Thistle and Country Grape medium. This rainbow coloured bookmark was made for her husband using Jane's bookmark pattern tatted in size 20 Rainbow Splash by Tat-ilicious. This lovely flower/butterfly pattern by Ladytats is done in Lizbeth Sea Island Citrus size 40. She tried out Martha Ess' butterfly pattern which was great for emptying a couple of shuttles.

Diane is finding the the current variegated pink Flora thread that she is using on the Spinning Wheel Glass Mat is reminding her of pink bubble gum. She has just received this lovely batch of motifs from Tatting Marie to share with her students. The students are continuing to do well spurred on, no doubt by the reward of these motifs.

Fox has completed another round of Renukek's Spring Napkin which looks amazing. The Stawasz doily is turning out to be her favourite piece of tatting so far, but it may be because it's in her favourite colours.

Marie is half way through these 2 rounds of motifs on her doily.

Sue made matching bracelets for her and her friend with Jane Eborall's Celtic or Overlapping Friendship Bracelet pattern in Lizbeth size 40 Lilac Dk., Caribbean, and Royal Blue, finishing them with Heart Toggle Clasps.
