Bracelet, Hat, Heart, Necklace, Butterfly, Doilies, Motifs, Cross, Angel and Edging

Lilas used DMC Cébélia 30 gemstone and rocaille beads to make this bracelet.

Sue has more work done on her hat. She's slowly progressing and re-filling her shuttles as they empty.


Aysh has been tatting with beads, something that used to terrify her, but she's been practicing with this little pattern.

Cigdem was one of the featured artists participating 43rd Bayou City Arts Festival in Houston. Symphony is one of her new designs tatted with two strands of polyester threads in blue and pale silver color with fire polished opaque Amazon blue rondelle, fresh water pearl, fire polished faceted black diamond crystals and faceted round smoky quartz beads. In round 3, genuine Amazonite are used in the focal motif.

mb duke used Modge Podge to glue a tatted motif to a round, glass disk found in the mosaics section at Michaels, added a magnet to the back and put it on her refrigerator. More Modge Podge was used to affix a tatted butterfly to a plain ceramic tile and then a plate hanger was used to hang it on the wall.


Grace finished off a WIP, a design by Patricia Rizzo worked in size 10 Lizbeth, it's ecru and she thinks Purple Splendor. She also did the Tudor rose by Rosemarie Peel.


Diane had 37 students for the after school tatting class, where they had a lot of fun, and Diane managed to get lots of pictures. The Arches doily has another round finished.  She was making progress on Arches, but cut it off before the round was finished and has to start it again. More students are making progress on their tatting.
































Fox finished the Spring Doily 2014 design by Renulek. It's 14 inches across done in size 80 Lizbeth and Perfect Quilter. She used beads on 4 rows.



Marie tatted around this stone and it reminds her her of a church window. This cross was done in size 40 Lizbeth thread, Jungle Green using a pattern called Camilla. The angel is by Rita called, Rita's Angel and was made with Lizbeth, size 20, Grape dk, white, and gold. Using up left-over, Lizbeth twisted thread on a shuttle, she tatted part of Mary Konior's Masquerade.




Martha has been swept up in the need to tat Renulek's Spring doily. Having been bitten by the bug, she decided to go with a different colour scheme, only to find that she liked the first one better.


HisKid did Vine Medallion No. 40 from Tatting with Anne Orr in size 3 Corsage HDT from Marilee which she plans on using as a small doily. In contrast, this is Rose Medallion # 39 from Tatting with Anne Orr tatted in size 40 Fairy Dust HDT from Tat-ilicious, and Lizbeth Lilac Med. here they are together for comparison. She got Corsage HDT from Marilee and has been tatted everything for herself in it.  This long strange looking piece will be a bracelet when she's finished practicing pearl tatting.  The other is random tatting which is now a candle coaster.




Wanda's mother asked her to decorate 2 bags to be used as gifts. Both have been done with a teacup theme.
