Bookmarks, Cross, Rose, Motifs, Snowflakes, Edgings, and Bracelet,

Tats is working on the Small Cross from Mary Konior's Tatting with Visual Patterns in Lizbeth size 20 Countryside. BSOTF has created a tatted napkin ring for special occasions.
Lily took a break from the challenge and she's back with Motif 11, single shuttle motifs done in size 20 Lizbeth Jewels that she is joining together for a larger project. She combined a butterfly body in green with an odd-shape butterfly/flower in yellow, added some crystal beads and a kite tail, and came up with a bookmark. Sue tatted the rose from the design challenge blog in Lizbeth Caribbean size 20 with tiny purple beads. She tatted a section of the Loop-di-Loop Doily as a Christmas tree to be used on an ornament. Sunshinecraft tatted a trio of snowflakes in DMC 80 Jon Yusof's 'Hearts in a Snowflake' The snow crystal from 'Tatter's Treasure Chest' and Kira's Star by Birgit Phelps.
Fox thinks her recent tatting must be jinxed with thread that split and broke, cut picots, wrong counts, and crossed threads, which is why it got cut to pieces. The blue motif by Yusai Shokoin, in A New Approach to Tatting, on the other hand, is working out perfectly. She has plans to tat four of them to make a larger project. Mica tatted 18th Day of December from Bjørn's book using 1 strand of metallic DMC floss and found it was a fun motif to make, since it was almost all split rings.
Shirl tatted these 2 edgings in DMC Cordonnet Special size 60. The first motif is done with DMC Cordonnet Special size 50 in Ecru and it measures 4 inches. The second motif is done in white HH Lizbeth thread size 20 and measure 3.5 inches. This collection of pieces made in Lizbeth size 20. were fun to make and they are basted with black thread to a piece of scrap book paper.

Wally tatted Jon's Foldover bookmark in Lizbeth #20 in Wildflowers and then she noticed that by adding an extra short piece to the other side, it made a nice bracelet.
