Earrings, Necklaces, Hearts, Butterflies, Edgings and Motifs

Tattips adapted a Mary Konior pattern from "Tatting with Visual Patterns" to make these bell like earrings in Lizbeth size 20 Sherbet Delight. Masquerade, also by Mary Konior, has been tatted in Lizbeth size 20 in Sherbet Delight and Raspberry Pink light. Agasunset shares the story of how her aunt taught her to tat, how she was inspired to turn a half finished doily into a bridal necklace in white and pearls and how she re-did the design recently in black and genuine Amethyst as a gift for her aunt. She's also thrilled that a magazine wants to feature her earrings in their summer issue. Liyarra shares with us a new source of HDT that tats up very nicely as you can see on the motif here.
NancyD has tatted 2 more Rose Cross bookmarks, one in red and white and the other in yellow and white.
IsDihara has been itching to show TatsKool's new transition thread called Flame Lantana. Here it is in all it's glory tatted into Betsy Evans' Rainbow Heart Bookmark and a partially completed motif from an Iris Nieback doily. Gorgeous thread that looks so scrumptious you could eat it with a spoon. Ancolie is tatting a baby bonnet that she had to modify to get the right dimensions. She's not sure it will work out properly, but if it doesn't she'll turn it into a holdall.

M has tatted Alladin from the book Tatted Snowflakes Collection by Jon Yusoff in Lizbeth 20, col 655, Wedgwood light and col 691, mocha brown medium and comments that she doesn't often think of putting these colours together, but if the shades are right, they work.
Nita is working on a hens and chicks edging in black with red beads which she will use to trim the neckline of a red T-shirt. There have been some comments on the tatting lists about not knowing what to do with a black edging and this is a perfect answer. Sherry has posted the pattern for her HOPE butterfly in PDF format.
