Key, Heart, Bookmarks and Celtic Tatting

Vanessa has completed a design by Judith Connors, which is now securely fastened to her son's 21st birthday card. It has been made from size 20 variegated yellow/white Coats Mercer crochet cotton.
IsDihara has been working out a nice bottom point for the second round of Birgit Phelp's 2003 SweetHeart, but in the process discovered that fixing one problem often creates several other challenges.

Shirl's #17 motifis a tatted covered button. This button measures 1 1/8 dia and the thread used is DMC 100.
Charlotte is tatting "Arlene's First Place Win" in Yarnplayer's Leafy hand dyed green thread and Flora size 20 yellow and white threads. She has one more round to get it completed. This is the largest single piece of tatting she has completed. Way to go!!

Wanda has completed a few more paperclip bookmarks. The purple one is from last week, and the green is using the same modified pattern from Debbie Arnold. It's made from DMC Cebelia size 20, green #955. The two butterflies are her own pattern; the pink is DMC Perle cotton size 8, pink variegated #116 and the blue is Manuela size 20, light blue #008. Great bookmarks.
Carol L has been busy during the summer and finally managed to add a picture to the top of her blog title. It is the Reversible Motif by Jane Eborall and used Yarnplayer's HDT, Tourmaline with matching threads. She also did a couple of Jane's earrings and is going to town with it.

Diane has been unhappy with this motif since she snipped a picot while cutting the final thread and missed a join as well. It is Round Paperweight Pattern from Projects in Tatting by Sheila York, and the pattern is on page 54. The thread is size 20 Lizbeth #691, Mocha Brown Med.
Joy is done with the rain soaked Farm Show. She got 4 blue ribbons (first place) and one white (third place). They had an error in the judging in the doilies and changed her category number on the flower garden doily, so it ended up with no ribbon. So, here are the "official" results:baby bonnet - blue ribbon; ornament - blue ribbon, vintage case - blue ribbon, purple oval doily - blue ribbon, eagle pillow - white ribbon, flower garden doily - nothing, hanky - nothing. Way to go Joy!!.
