Edgings, Motifs, Doilies, Crosses and Snowflakes

Jane continues working the edgings from Teiko Fujito's book with these classic ring and chain designs.

Elsa has continued to combine needle lace and tatting and remembering a square motif she did earlier, she thought it would be a good candidate for this application. It looks like a winner to me.

Melanie thought of tatting a cover for a china bell, but this simple beaded edging is a perfect compliment.

Diane started her next Spinning Wheel in size 80 Lizbeth #607, Charcoal Med. She would have made more progress, but a computer problem took up her time, until it mysteriously fixed itself. She really likes this shade of gray, or should she say charcoal? After the soft gray she switched to size 80 Lizbeth #711, Bright Blue Dk, which she is appropriately tatting with a bright blue shuttle.

Marie tatted the "Heritage Cross," by Dee Powell. This cross can be found in  Tatted Bookmarks, by Handy Hands.  Another favourite cross is from Wendy Durell, called "Split Ring Cross" is quick and easy.

Muskaan worked on Eighteenth Day of December Snowflake by Lene Björn, but something wasn't quite what it should have been, which is why she has the original and a variation done in reverse colours.

Sue asked the recipient of this cross, what her favourite colour is, and the reply was; black and green. So Mary Konior's Small Cross, from her Tatting with Visual Patterns book, is tatted in Lizbeth size 40 Black and Yarnplayer's HDT Celery.
