Bracelet, Motifs, Necklaces, Doilies, and Hearts

BSOTF joins the challenge with a pendant done in Lizbeth Island Breeze and the second in some vintage Star thread.

One heart is not enough so Marta did 2 hearts in Jon Yusoff's Hearts Entwined/Crowning Hearts pattern in Aida. She's not sure of the size or colour because the label is missing.

Nami's sister wanted a necklace to match the earrings. So Nami designed using malachite beads.

Kat figured out Jane's lock join and proceeded to work with black so that she could see the contrast. Then she wondered what 2 would look like and now she has a string of them just right for a bracelet.

Sue had a mistake on round 2 of the Loop-di-Loop doily that she had to cut out and there's one little section she's not happy with. She finished the last round and it turned out lovely and it's done in time to be a house warming gift for her mother in law.

Agasunset is tatting lots of anklets one she calls Maverick and another with skulls and one she calls Arabian Snake done in chocolate brown.

IsDihara is working on the Summer Fun bookmark with motif #2 nearly complete. Tatted in two colors, size 20 Lizbeth #104 and #642, each motif measures 2 by 2 inches. The two doodles tatted in Lizbeth size 40, color #100 Autumn Leaves, were added for perspective. Barbara Foster sent her this photo of a square motif tatted in the soon-to-be-released Lizbeth size 80. This color is #122 Caribbean.
Wanda is making a hatband for a floppy brimmed hat and it's about half done.These stars are done in size 20 thread, Hakelgarn color 2011 (red) and Manuela color 019 (blue).

Diane brought out her box of finished pieces to share with her mother and sister. She's not sure of the pattern names except for Kersti's Stumpy that her Mom chose. The green and purple piece that Janet chose is her tribute to Myra Piper. The center is Myra's motif #12 and she designed the green edging.

Fox has yet another tatted ring done. This one obviously ready to hang off of something.

Martha has been using a new custom made shuttle that holds lots of thread to make these pieces with beads and buttons.

Marty tatted a mini Beatrice from from Iris Niebach's Tatted Doilies using YLI machine quilting thread in a very subtle variegated blue/green/purple called "Alaskan Twilight" and it measures about 4 inches across.

Wally was stuck on a long drive without her tatting supplies and found some curly ribbon and used it to finger tat a heart.

How I love coming here and getting inspired. Today I am packing for a long rest at the shore- and choosing which tatting books to take is part of the job! Can't wait to have time to get back to my tatting!
