Motifs, Necklace, Doily, Edgings and a Bonnet

Patrycja is painting more HDT, this time in warm shades of brown.
Sue has finished the necklace that matches the earring set she did, now she just has to find a matching chain to go with it.

Wendy is participating in a project that commemorates the contribution of the thousands of women convicts sent to Australia by making and decorating a bonnet. Wendy's bonnet is decorated with Clover Snowflake she designed, Mary Konior's Curds and Whey edging and her own Tiny Rings edging tatted in Lizbeth variegated thread, size 20. Katherinne was trying to tat Ruth Perry's Eight Inch Doily without the pattern so she ended up with this as a first round and she's trying to add the second round of rosettes, which is proving difficult.
IsDihara was joyfully tatting away with her precious Just Daffodils HDT making Julie Patterson's Spring bookmark. Unfortunately at some point she went on autopilot and forget to tat the single green leaf ring. Now she's not sure what to do. Linda has finished her new pocket book. The CQ bag is covered with tatted trims, like a butterfly, fan, bunny, kokopelli and edgings as well as the usual embroidery embellishments.

Wanda has written out the pattern for her doily and started tatting it in Lizbeth size 20 'Western Sunset' which is shades of red and purples. On the second round she's using red as the chain thread to see how that looks, but she's not sure if she likes it or not. Anne's contribution to the 2010 Tat Days Fundraiser Project is on it's way to meet it's friends. The tatted dragon flies and flowers were inspired by the patterns on two of the fabrics on the block.

Diane has been busy with other things but managed to tat the Spinning Wheel glass mat from Tatting with Visual Patterns by Mary Konior in shades of green, size 20, hand-dyed by Krystle.

Fox tatted this design from Yusai Shokoin's "A New Approach to Tatting" in some lovely Wine and Roses HDT from Heather. Fox is distressed over bare thread, but I can't see any.
