Motifs, Pendants, Snowflake and Bookmark

Patrycja loves all kinds of medallions and pendants. This red piece is surrounded in tatting using brown Aida 20 and red beads to make an artful medallion.

Jeff tatted the "Rose Garden" motif from Mary Konior's book Tatting in Lace in ordinary white thread and it made a charming motif. Then he tatted it in colour using Purple Punch size 20 HDT by Yarnplayer and the green is Lizbeth size 20 in colour #684 and it made the design really pop. He was going to add a pin to the back but didn't have anything suitable so he added a jump ring to turn it into a pendant and gave it to his Mom for Mother's Day. Isn't she a lucky lady? Krystle received a bookmark in an exchange with Fox. The pattern is Mary Konior, the thread as Marilee's, and the lovely addition of the beads was all Fox.
Mica on her second set of 25, tatted Day 16 from Bjorn's snowflake book using 1 strand of DMC metallic thread. The metallic threads can make using large rings difficult so after the first one she switched to mock rings for the large centre one.
