Trees, Flowers, Hairclips, Dragon, Doilies, Motifs, Edging, Snowflake and Lady

Batty Tatter is using water colour paper and a glue stick to create these seasonal tree pictures. She added a sparkly hoar  frost effect to the winter tree which has a cute little owl on one of the branches. Now I want to make my own set.

Erisnyx used the Tatted Rose, by Linda S Davies to makes these hairclips in size 10 thread, in her niece's favorite colours for a wonderful birthday gift. She found the Chinese Dragon by Anne Bruvold monotonous to tat, but this is the first time she tried hiding the ends by weaving them in and she likes the effect.

Claire has started Renulek's Spring Doily in Lizbeth size 20, colour Country Turquoise Med #616.

Diane's friend Denise dropped off all of these motifs for her class. That's a good thing because Paige has a lot of tatting to show off and she got to select a heart as her reward. Delaney figured out how to switch shuttles to create a pattern, which was even more challenging as she was using a bobbin for the second shuttle. She chose a bookmark as her prize. Diane's hanky edging is growing slowly but surely.

Fox saw Stephanie's Lucky Clover doily and had to give it a try, but a miscount at the beginning and some strange inner picots has her thinking she may start again.

Margaret used a snowflake that didn't hang right, added some blue beads and an offset ribbon for this blue pincushion. The Sunbonnet Sue Motif designed by Darlene Polachic was tatted with white and Christmas thread Lizbeth no 20. A tatted strip for grass using Flora no 20, a wee butterfly and a few flowers with bead centres made this yellow pincushion into a garden scene.

Marie has one more round to go on this large doily.
