Motifs, Flowers, Snowflakes, Ice Drops, Dragon, Bookmarks, Bracelet and Necklace

Vera envisioned this piece with pearls, but didn't add them because she wasn't certain the row would work out. She had a couple of other ideas just using segments of the design  for alternate ornaments.

Sharon decided to take another stab at cro-tatting and these larger flowers were done with Annie's size 6 hook and Lizbeth size 3 thread, while the smaller flower was done with Annie's size 10 hook and Artiste size 10 thread. She did a lot of practicing as you can see the top left is Lizbeth size 3 using Annie's size 6 hook and the top right is Aunt Lydia size 10 using the Annie's size 6 hook, which she thinks is a bit loose and floppy. The snowflakes are: bottom left the same size 10 thread using the Annie's size 10 hook and bottom right is Artiste 10 with the size 10 Cro-tat hook.

Pop Maria was looking for some way to display the snowflakes she did last year and a patchwork tree she saw online seemed perfect, so she sewed one up and added her lovely snowflakes. The dimensions are 170/60 cm.

Diane ordered some Finca metallic thread from Rita at Shuttle by Design and she couldn't wait to get started on this lovely Ice Drop. She's focused on getting ready for Christmas in the Village, and since one of the prizes she won at Palmetto Tat Days was an assortment of beads, she's focused on tatting her basic Ice Drop pattern with each colour bead in the box. She finished off one group and filled a tree, but she has some more colours to go. It was a gloomy day but she tatted some brighter Ice Drops. Five more Ice Drops done! One lonely little Ice Drop since mundane things like cleaning and shopping intruded.

Eliz explored of Muskaan's Quatrefoil Medallions and the knot free hiding of ends on these designs. She was so enthused with it she also tried out Muskaan's Quatrefoil Square Flower 1.

Fox tatted Robin Perfetti's design using variegated thread from AlenAleaDesigns. She loves Jan Stawasz designs, but she has to concentrate not to make mistakes. The thread she is using is DMC Babylo, a three-ply size 20, which is smaller and smoother than Lizbeth at the same size.

Marie has started to add beads to the snowflakes she made. She added a fall dragon to her collection using Anne Bruvold's design.

Muskaan is showing us her design in progress utilizing her Clover Wreath Mats pattern. She has also been playing around with layering effects. Then this 3 row pattern done in Anchor size 50 that works well as a bookmark of bracelet.

Sue tatted a necklace inspired by Tatting Tatsright using an online pattern and size 20 Lizbeth Rainbow Taffy, and size with 40 Lizbeth Lilac Dk. and Raspberry Pink and some butterflies for fun. Another Birthday Ice Drop; one is tatted in size 20 thread, the others in size 40.
