Elsa's large project for 2017 is her Flower Carpet shawl which she is doing in size 20 thread and the larger thread than she used for the Harlequin shawl means she only needs 9 rows to make it wide enough. She's working with Lizbeth size 20 Nos. 626 and 627 and Rocailles 11/0 Miyuki "Opaque Antique Beige".
Diane had a visit from family and Sophie fell in love with her Blue Fudge Ice Drop and wanted another one in pink, but Diane didn't get finished in time for her to take it home. A flu bug kept her from subbing so she tatted more St Patrick's Ice Drops. A friend suggested hanging the charm from the bottom, so she tried it, but didn't like the result. She's still enjoying playing with different gems and different ribbons. When she finds a large charm, she hangs it from the back of the Ice Drop. It took her most of a day to design this Purple Fudge Ice Drop and she notes that working with dark brown can be really difficult, especially when trying to retro-tat!
Eliz is still struggling to focus on anything for very long so she's been finishing off some projects that mostly just needed the ends hid. The Victorian Heart from an unknown magazine source and unknown designer, #2 in 25 Motif Challenge of 2017 size 16 Finca perle cotton, along with various other projects she has shown previously.
Fox is blaming the beads for the slow going on this lovely doily.
Marie is calling this embellished button that she used to create a pendant, "Crystal". "For His Glory" is the name she gave this tatsmithed cross.
Muskaan created a diagram for, as well as a notated pattern in modern terms for this sampler from Coats and Clark book #121 as requested by Georgia. Then she went a step further and tatted it as well. This was a single-sided scalloped edging from Book 5 by Marie Antoinette Hees but she returned back along the same path, and created a bookmark, complete with a tail and charm, all in one pass.
Phyllis made Jane's TIAS shown here going down a ramp, since she joined her head backwards, tatted in size 20 thread she hand dyed. She completed February's paperclip project, a delightful little heart whose pattern can be found on the Online Tatting 2017 page.
Sue has a start on a new project and she's sharing a teaser. Here it is, the Star from 6 Crowns from Schiffchenspitze 1919 Tina Frauberger, tatted in size 40 Lizbeth Elderberry Jam.
