Motifs, Butterflies, Angels, Bookmark and Edging

Kjellaug has joined the challenge with this design from Patterns from the Danish Association orkis magazine No. 19 -2003 tatted in DMC 20. The butterfly comes from the same publication, it's leaf nr18 - 2003 also done in DMC 20. The angel was created using parts of several designs. The skirt uses the lower part of the bookmark by Jon Yusoff twice then made a border around to frame the skirt the wings are from Lenore English's Dimpled Ring Angel. Lily tatted the butterfly body adapted from a pattern in the book 'The Gentle Art of Tatting Things We Love' as a birthday gift for a friend.
Wendy was neglecting the 25 Motif Challenge, so here are five motifs, to catch up a bit. The Angel is 'Ruth's Angel' from Mark Myers' book a 'Tatted Gathering of Angels' tatted in DMC 40 and the others are from Patti Duff's book 'MiniTats'. The variegated blue ones are tatted in Coats 20 and the white one is tatted in DMC 40.
Diane made the "Tatted 5-Point Motif" from Bev Dillon's Tatted Lace in size 20 Rainbow Sherbet HDT from LadyShuttleMaker and it reminds her of a schoolhouse. She thinks that done in primary colours it would make a perfect picture frame for school pictures.

Fox is making progress on the tatted bookmark. She has also added a row of tatted rings and a pretty button to the top of a crocheted cap. The lilac coloured thread will make a nice edging for the cap.

Mica tatted this square motif from one of the Japanese books. She had the centre done and put it aside only recently picking it up to finish it.
