Peep, Motif, Edgings and Applause
Ruth has created a darling little chick in the grass. Her Peep bookmark looks like it would be quick to do.
Snowy has completed motif from a previous issue of the ring of tatters newsletter. She has done it in a very pretty variegated thread with a green border that makes it look like a flower. She has also posted a picture of some beautiful blackwork done by a friend.
EeKoon has completed some needlework that has been a WIP for quite a while. She has also done some bead work, but hasn't been tatting very much recently.
Marty and her sister have teamed up. Her sister has dyed some onsies and Marti created some lace to match for their niece's baby . She hasn't been following a pattern, just letting the lace go where it wants. All of these edgings were created with one strand of Signature pink ombre machine embroidery thread and one strand of Gütermann pink 100% cotton sewing thread. What a lucky baby.
Eliz has been busy lately. Her daughter decided that she'd rather have a doily made up of square motives rather than an oval one. She decided on Cherie Wheeler's Cecelia Doily motif and Eliz is anxious to get started on it. In the mean time she created some variations of her mini cross not only to make some quick bookmarks, but also to add as tassels to larger bookmarks. Tassels really finish off a bookmark but I have to confess that I don't bother with them a lot of the time just because they are so fiddly to make. I much prefer Eliz's little mini cross instead of a tassel. As if she didn't already have a lot going on, Eliz has also created another little flower motif. This one is called Applause Flowers.
