Seahorse, Necklace, Bracelet, Earrings, Edging, Doilies, Bookmarks, Techniques and Lanyard

Batty Tatter has been trying to get some tatting done for the Farmer's Market and these seahorses are some of her work.

Lelia took a class with Marilee Rocklee at the Lafayette Lacemakers convention, where these did Marilee's Beaded Path pattern which she worked in Lizbeth size 10, colour 650,Denim Blue Lt. Marilee's kit for the design had everything needed thread, crochet hook, tatting shuttle, beads, bead mat, findings, and colour pattern. It makes necklace, bracelet and earrings. Lelia found the Magical edging keeper in purpleheart wood impossible to resist and she just had to bring one home to try.

Diane has been working on Renulek's Napkin mini-beauty in size 20, Lizbeth, Pineapple Parfait and she's on round 3. Here she's ready to start round 4. The finished size is 7 1/4" and she loves the colour. She wound some Coats & Clark's size 70 tatting-crochet thread on her newest Hand-wind Shuttle from Grizzly Mountain Arts and started another Spinning Wheel.

Eliz tatted Muskaan's Split Colour Edging in one colour although her first attempt in size 80 thread went straight in the trash. The Sixteenth Day of December from Lene Bjorn's 24 Snowflakes in Tatting is done in Lizbeth size 20 for a finished diameter of 9.5 cm or 3.75 inches.  By starting with a clover from the outside round and making the 2nd ring of the clover a self-closing mock ring, she was able to tat the Seventeenth Day of December in one round using DMC Cecelia size 30 for a snowflake that is 9 cm or 3.6 inches. Camilla Cross from Lene Bjorn's Tatted Bookmarks done in Manuela size 20, colour #041 is 12 cm or 4.75 inches tall.

Fox has finished off the doily for Mini Boss and although she started out not liking the colour of the thread, she's decided, now that it's finished, that it's pretty after all. After size 80 thread, she's working in size 8 perle and the beads are a light lilac shade that she likes with the ecru and red thread.

Muskaan has added some detailed pictures and clarification of the techniques used in her recent post.

Sue tatted this bookmark to empty a shuttle and she thought it might end up as a bracelet, but it kept curling up so much that she stopped and made it short for a bookmark.  

Wanda had several people ask how she made her Lanyard, so she's written it out and added it to her Patterns page.
