Earrings, Bookmarks, Edging, Motif, Necklaces and Snowflakes

Kkommy finished Anne Bruvold's Dragon Wing Doily in Lizbeth Royal Wave size 20, color 143. Then she did Twirly from Jon's Snowflake Collection in Lizbeth Royal Wave and Caribbean. She has started Pirquette also from Jon's Snowflake Collection using a solid and a variegated thread and started another centre to empty her shuttle. Not needing to empty shuttles is yet another reason why I love using bobbin shuttles. Ingrid re-tatted the necklace based on Agasunset's version omitting one of the in between rings and tatting it in finer thread. This isn't part of the challenge, but as you have seen the first version, you'll want to see this version too. Ingrid said getting the 2 small beads on the sides to keep it in place was the biggest challenge. The next necklace uses a motif from a 1980 Burda publication and the heart shaped beads are a corn-colour. Matching earrings would be lovely. She was tatting a 6-petal beaded leaf, made with some old wooden beads when she paused after the 4th petal and look what she has a "Butterleaf".

BSOTF has tatted an orange and green round ring motif and asks the question, "Could it be something to look sexy on a tractor?" I don't know, I suppose you'd have to ask another tractor.
Lily was one of the lucky winners for IsDihara's Artbin Giveaway and included in her prize was a hanky with a delicate tatted edging. Sue is tatting 65 of these paperclip heart bookmarks for a ladies meeting in October. She's done 19 so far and needed to take a break from little hearts so she started a new Mary Konior Small Cross in Lizbeth size 40 Fruit Fizz thread. She had originally planned to do the outside in Lilac Dk but she was sent size 20 instead of 40 so she did both rounds in Fruit Fizz and as she was finishing her tied thread on round one came apart so she's keeping this one.

Ancolie did another square motif. This one by Lene Bjorn was a bit easier to do.

Marty tatted these earrings with Oren Bayan multi-colored metallic thread and tiny little blue beads and entered them in "Creative Arts: Jewelry-mixed media", but like the rest of her jewelry, they got moved to "Home Arts" where the only person she was competing against was herself. Still it's nice that her second favourite earrings got a first place ribbon.
