Snowflakes, Leaves, Butterflies and Earrings

Mica was cleaning when she found this grouping she did from Mini Tats all done in DMC ecru size 80.
Krystle is excited that she has samples of 3 generations of tatting and it's soon to be 4. Here are the samples from her grandmother and great grandmother. She's waiting on a piece from her mother. After making a lot of earrings for friends and the shop, she finally made some to keep in a lovely Tencel hand dyed thread.
Kelly made a lovely necklace and earring set for herself. She needed a treat after several trips to the hospital and gall bladder surgery.
Jeanne turned Anne's Ringtrim dragon into earrings in size 20 Hakelgarn hand dyed by Sherry Pence, aka LadyShuttleMaker. The darker variegated is her Swamp Flower and the lighter is her Pear Glace'
Aileen has tatted Jane Eborall's elephant and named him Ello. Ello was done in size 20 thread in grey that she got from Hongkong and some 20 white Haklegarn for his tusks. Anne has tatted Linda Davies's doily in blue and white and it's just stunning!
Heather survived her daughter's surgery and has some new tatted earrings to show for it.

Joy is working on a remembrance quilt and has some more blocks done with tatted butterflies.

Martha is working on the "Exercise Your Stash Challenge", and tatted the Peaceable Heart from Make Many Merrily by Karey Solomon in a variegated rayon thread. Then she found this lovely leafy YLI variegated thread about size 60 which she used to tat a maple leaf a variation on a Workbasket pattern. Camouflage anyone? This next leaf was tatted in Clark's O.N.T. Brilliant which seems to be a perle cotton.

TattingChic won these 2 tatted snowflakes from a giveaway.
