Lots of Lizbeth thread!

Laurette joins the challenge and used the Blue Doily pattern by Eileen Stafford to make this pair of doiles The first one was the top one with white chain with green rings, and the second has the colors reversed. The thread is DMC size 12 perle cotton.

Mica tatted the Ribbon -Floss Snowflake from Tatted Snowflakes by Vida Sunderman worked in Kreinik braid No. 4. She tried out the Shuttle brother's SCMR butterfly in DMC 80. Another little snowflake from Tatted Snowflakes. This one is "Tiny Snowflake" and it really is tiny even when made with Kreinik No. 4 braid.

Chiara tatted the Funny Face Bookmark by Jane Eborall in variegated brown DMC perlè 8 and DMC white 10. Eyes are 2 black plastic pearls and nose a Swarovki red crystal.
Laura's been at snowflakes again and has 2 more lovely flakes done in all kinds of threads. She's also been tatting up the Lizbeth thread she got in the thread exchange and has been hard at work at bobbin lace.

Krystle's done a tiiiny doiley in 80 majestic thread in a lovely deep green. She's also done a lovely pair of Yarnplayer earrings in Lizbeth thread (what else!)

Bonnie's tatted spinning wheel mats! She claims there is a mistake on one of them but… it looks great anyway!

Shay needle tatted an edging from an old McCall's Needlework & Crafts from the 1940's using an extra fine needle in DMC #12 Coton Perle from Village Stitches, and reverse-imaged it to create a bookmark with a length of grosgrain ribbon.
I've shared my trip to Hongkong and my new bookmark and picot guage.

BJ's trying out front/back side tatting in (guess what!) Lizbeth thread!

Diane's take along project for her road trip was the spinning wheel glass mat done in HDT. She received an exchange package from Snowy which included a lovely piece of tatting and chocolate along with other goodies. This lovely peach thread that Snowy sent was used to make a bookmark for herself. The thread is Anchor #6, and the pattern is No. 4 from Myra Piper's Tatting. Joy's done a spinning wheel mat too in (you guessed it!) Lizbeth thread.
