Butterflies, Hearts, Doilies, Earrings, Snowflake, Bracelet and Edgings

Paige joins the challenge with a design from Teri Dusenbury and the thread is size 20 Witch's Brew by LadyShuttleMaker.
Mickchick831 made this tatted barrette with a size 10 thread that's larger than most size 10 threads.
Kat tatted SweetHeart by Birgit Phelps with and without picots for her Mom to give away.
Patrycja has finished the doily she was working on in size 20 Aida ecru thread.
Corina didn't have the right size thread so she improvised with some size 30 and a finer thread to make these turtle earrings.
Sue tatted the Flower Snowflake from Tatted Snowflakes by Vida Sunderman in size 10 to help her gain confidence.
Ellen has some more ATCs done with tatted flowers and tatted bees.
Fox has re-purposed a bookmark that she wasn't happy with and turned it into a wonderful bracelet for a 12 year old who loves purple and admired her tatting. She's also working on her cluny tatting and she has finished the tatted edging for the wee one's socks.

Kelly has taken the plunge and changed a vintage tatting pattern into a lovely necklace made with size 20 thread. The local bridal shop is interested in it and Kelly's looking for some pricing ideas. Martha asked Heather and Wally to check out the patterns she has planned for Palmetto's since last year there were some issues she was at a loss to explain to needle tatters. For their assessment on the patterns, check out the details on Martha's blog.

Shirley has been tatting without blogging and is now catching up. The heart with the flowers is 'Daisies and Forsythia' from Martha Ess' book "Tat's Amore" to go with the project that her friends have been working on tatted in yellow and white DMC Cebelia size 30 and the green is DMC cordonnet special size 30. The black heart is from the same book and is called 'freeform heart' done in size #30. The small butterflies were also made for the project and measure about 1" to 1 1/2". The threads were all ends from her shuttles. She made 72 of these and if they are not all put to use they will be made into bookmarks to hand out to her friends. The larger butterfly done in Lizbeth size 20, color #115 is from Simple Angel Lesson Series, Part 3 - butterfly motif by Sabina Carden-Madden using beads that are larger than seed beads.
