Snowflakes, Bookmarks and Experimental Tatting

Vicki has just begun needle tatting and she has decided to join the challenge. Here is the second round of the Clover Doily she is working on.
Christine has also joined the challenge and she did “Black Magic” from Mary Konior's “Tatting with Visual Patterns” in DMC Pearl Cotton size 12 - Ecru. It is going to be attached to a crazy quilt block that she is doing as part of a round robin.
Kyoung-mi is one of Sherry's Korean students and she joins the challenge with some colourful tatted leaves.

Vinnie has been learning new things and then experimenting with them. She started with folded rings and then daisy picots, followed by the balanced double stitch see how things progressed step by step? What clever ideas!
Ancolie shows us her celtic bookmark. They are usually done in different colours but the monochromatic version really brings out the texture. I think I'd like it mounted on a hair clip. Here is her diamond finally finished.
Ais was in India again and she managed to do a couple of motifs but no pictures except this one another bookmark like the previous entries.
Jeff made made Jon's Quantiesque Snowflake again this time in size 80 shown next to a quarter then shown next to the first snowflake they're both tiny.
Sherry has jumped back into the challenge and plans to do all of her new entries in HDT. Speaking of HDT she has some mouthwatering colour available like "BELL PEPPERS", "GERBER DAISIES" and "WITCHES BREW". Don't forget that the 15th is the draw for one of Sherry's lovely ceramic tatting shuttles.
