Crosses, Motifs, Snowflakes and Eggs

Wendy decided to tat this cross in several colours and threads for an Easter theme.

Cindy tatted the Cross Bookmark from Christmas Angels and Other Tatting Patterns by Monica Hahn using Size 40 White and Lizbeth #107 Tropical Fruit.

Ann's pretty variegated cross was tatted by her grandmother.
Ancolie tatted a square motif pattern by Rosella Linden aka Ruth Perry in cotton multi-color mercerized Venne N/M 40/2.
Aileen did a little tweaking to Jon's Kejore from her book Tatting with Rings to make a little fob for her fabric shears using size 20 Lizbeth Zebra with size 11/0 hematite coloured beads. Then she made a second one for her paper scissors with size 20 Milford and size 11/0 metallic purple beads.
Fox shows us how she carries her tatting. The piece displayed in the pouch looks like Vinnies's Spring Doily. Her 19th entry for the challenge is one of Jon's snowflakes, Aladdin from her snowflake book, in Lizbeth #20.

Kathy tatted Mary Konior's cross several years ago but she's decided to to put it in a frame and added a gold metal embellishment, plus a small crystal in the center. Kathy's egg tree has several of her 3-D eggs all in the same design. The other eggs on the tree are pastel flocked eggs or metallic ones, with tatted motifs on them.
M tatted Pirouette from the book Tatted Snowflakes Collection by Jon Yusoff in Lizbeth 40, col 142, turquoise twist but she's not sure she likes the thread with this pattern. M uses tweezers to open closed rings and shows us series of pictures explaining how she does it.
