Doilies, Necklaces, Flowers, Motifs and Earrings

Lilas began this design with clunies from Elisa du Sud‘s blog for her mother which gave her practice with clunies and a chance to try out split chains which she hadn't done before.

Sue was the recent winner in a giveaway from Umi n Tsuru and received this awesome necklace, which she's had to guard to protect it from pilfering by her Mom and a friend's daughter.

Ancolie tatted the flat flower from Lyn Morton's Tatting Patterns with Lizbeth thread size 80 Color 156, Juicy Watermelon.

Diane had 44 students in the after-school tatting class including some grade 2 students. Being able to select a tatted reward each time they pass a benchmark helps to keep them motivated. Foam strip bracelets are ideal for decorating with tatting and let the students show off their treasures. Lou Dawn sent some paperclips with tatting which they fell in love with. Now they want to learn how to make their own. Ann sent her some goodies to share with the students and they decided the glittery threads should be saved for prizes.

Kathy has an antique doily on permanent display. It's laid on a gold charger, covered with a glass plate to protect it and a pillar candle with a hurricane lamp, where it's beautiful, visible and protected.

Marie made a matching pair of earrings to go with the Icy Necklace using two strands of metallic silver sewing thread on opalescent focal beads. The Silvery Green pendent is made with two strands of silver sewing thread and green cats-eye.

HisKid has Renulek's Spring doily round 4 done and she has added size 40 Lizbeth Lime Green Med, and with all these colours all I can think of is a big bowl of sherbet.
