Doilies, Ornaments, Necklaces, Motifs, Heart and Snowflakes

BSOTF shows us some of the pieces from her box of practice bits.
Ladydoc is making progress on her 6th motif.
Orsi has had to take a break from working on her suit because she ran out of thread. While she's waiting fro the thread to arrive she looked at a picture of a bell flower found on the internet (it looks like a Mary Konior design) and decided to make her own version. Here are the pictures of her 2 variations.
Lily wasn't happy with the spinning wheel glass mat in green, so she started over again in creamsicle orange and cobalt blue, which sounds odd but looks quite lovely.
Sue regained her calm and chilled out tatting the Tiny Snowflake from Tatted Snowflakes by Vida Sunderman in Lizbeth size 20 Royal Wave. She started another snowflake from an on-line pattern, only she discovered that the instructions weren't for the pictured pattern, but for Vida Sunderman's Sparkling Snowflake, again it's done in Lizbeth Royal Wave. The star is her own invention also done with the same thread. Agasunset is waiting on crystals and had some time to work on another challenge. She was asked to make a choker with some trailing pieces to be worn with a backless dress.
IsDihara has tatted Mary Konior's Spinning Wheel glass mat in Heather's Bali HDT size 30. Now she's looking at the colour flow and wondering what other combinations would look like. Mary Konior's Queen of Hearts was done in Lizbeth size 40, color #139 Fruit Fizz and #696 Autumn Orange medium. In between she taught her niece how to tat and here she is proudly showing off her first few stitches.
Fox was joining the last side of the third motif and things went horribly wrong, so she has put it away for another day when she is feeling less stressed over it.
Heather is recovering from a lightning strike near the house that knocked out the internet and a lot of other things. While she was without service, she managed to tat this interesting necklace.
Krystle re-did the bride necklace in black with matte black beads and she's adding it to her shop, working on her goal of having 100 items listed.
Marty has two more ornaments completed, again made from Lizbeth 40 on 1.5 inch glass ornaments. The pattern is Ruth Perry's Celtic Snowflake 2008 using just five pattern repeats laced together with a single strand of the colored thread to hold them on the ornament.
Sherry has created a doily that demonstrates what she calls structured randomness which combines free flow with structure. Very pretty.
Shirl joined a swap that is making little altered pillows and this is her version with tatting atop a tiny felt heart.
