Fern, Ivy, Butterfly and Thread Winders

TattingChic has been exchanging gifts with Laura and she shows us the lovely thread winders that Laura sent her. Here's a sample of them.
Aileen has set herself a new challenge to tat patterns she hasn't tried before because they were "scary" Motif #1 is Jane Eborall's 2005 Butterfly with overlapping wings done in variegated red size 20 Omega with 11/0 seed beads.
Barbara is working from Rosemarie Peel's book, 20 Tatted Motifs to make a picture the Fern was tatted in Olympus size 40. The Ivy way made with the same thread.
Mrs John has been working outside on the ranch looking forward to the laid back winter pace where she could sit cozily inside and tat. Except if she wants to finish before the end of the year she'll need to do 15 motifs in 44 days, so here is the first piece being worked on while herding cattle in a pickup truck. Shall we let her tat fast and furious to make the deadline, or tell her now that she's the only one keeping track?
Diane is tatting herself a blizzard of snowflakes using A Veritable Tatted Blizzard by Samantha Melnychuk and an assortment of HDT form Marilee and Sherry.
Gina's been having fun doing Ellen's Tree bookmark.
Laura is displaying the lovely snowflakes sent to her by TattingChic. She has also posted Ruth Perry's Celtic snowflake done in size 20 Flora. She had to give it a try after Clyde sent her one done in HDT.
Mark has posted a picture of the floral tatting spray for his niece's wedding gown. If you haven't seen it yet, go look. It's amazing.
Marty has tatted some ornaments all in white for a friend's birthday. The friend loves them but Marty thinks they need some colour. Me too!
I posted a tutorial on how to add in new thread.
Sherry has some new shuttles in her Etsy shop.
