Earrings, Motifs, Shawl, Doilies, Snowflakes, Brooch and Hedgehog

Sharon discovered a knit shop in a coffee shop/bookstore and she  took a selection of earrings to show off made using Sweet Pea and Spanish Dancer from Krystle Pyette, and Floret from Marilee Rockley.

Elsa started her tatted shawl in a Harlequin style with no less than 19 colours using DMC cotton pearl size 12. She has taken pictures of various segments to give you an idea of how she is working it.

Diane thinks she would have finished this Spinning Wheel if she hadn't spent so much time reading. She did finish her Spinning Wheel in Niagara Falls. The size of these doilies for reference; the blue is Lizbeth size 80 and about 3 1/2", the yellow Snowflake Cappuccino is size 20 Lizbeth and is about 4 3/4", the green Spinning wheel is size 20 Lizbeth and is about 5 1/2". Now she's working on Renulek's Napkin mini-beauty in size 20 Lizbeth, Pineapple Parfait.

Eliz has been learning Filet Tatting with Amanda aka Mandatory which doesn't look like much after the first row.

Fox wasn't enamoured of the thread colour but it isn't pooling as bad as she thought it would. She purchased some size 8 Finca pearl cotton, which is the same thread she used for the s First Prize Fair Winner doily she did a few years ago, and plans to tat Renulek's new pattern with beads making a similar doily for her friend.

Margaret tatted Lene Bjorn's 12th day of December in Lizbeth size 20 white, and while she didn't really like the pattern, now that it's pressed it looks better than she thought. The 13th Day of December was done in Green Coral Sea Lizbeth no 20 for a change of colour.

Marie has posted instructions for adding beads to her  2-Layered Flower Brooch. Here is the same brooch with different beads.

Muskaan tatted RainBeau the 2009 Appalachian Festival Hedgehog by Ruth Perry in Anchor Mercer Crochet Cotton Size 20 shade white with ta 4054-1218. She shows the techniques she used in the hedgehog from previous pieces. She came across the term Loop-Tatted Ring on Ring in a tutorial/diagram from Anastasija P.Yelisejeva and used it for part of Iris Niebach's doily.

Sue only has 16 repeats left, but she is tired of the repetition and had to put it aside for a while. Row 14 is finally done!
