Motifs, Doilies, Edging, Earrings, Bracelet, Leaf and Heart

Nami's sister bought some metal earrings with a red stone and wanted to see if Nami could reproduce the effect in tatting. It appears as if the outer edge of this earring is crocheted like the set she did earlier. What a pretty effect!
Orsi has the felted stole with the tatted flower embellishment completed. Check her blog for the picture of the whole thing.
Agasunset has been working in black and got a chance to do some filming.
Wendy tatted Anne Bruvold's Chinese Dragon in a variegated Lizbeth 20 and it looks marvelous.
Isabel's niece wanted her to make a tatted bracelet. She saw a bookmark pattern somewhere on the internet and used the idea along with some beads to make the bracelet design which her niece promptly showed off to all her friends.
Bev's tatting corner became the victim of renovations going on elsewhere in the house and hampered her access to tatting supplies. Can anyone say "withdrawal"? A path was finally cleared and she has used Marilee's Corsage size 40 HDT on these Peacock hearts and Zarina's Garden Path on the leaf that is an adaptation of one that appeared in a Workbasket magazine. She has cut back the offending rows on the oval Sheep May Safely Graze doily and she's now back to the trellis which will be done in size 30 cream Anchor thread.
Diane loves the edging she used for Joanne's wedding hanky so much she used it for her wedding hanky too. It's the second pattern in A Tatter's Workbook by A. Tatter worked in Lizbeth size 20 color #633, But she thinks that next time she'll do it in a finer thread. Diane is also having a special give away of this Spinning Wheel glass mat from Tatting with Visual Patterns by Mary Konior, and one Stumpy bookmark by Kersti Anear, both tatted in size 20 Witches Brew HDT, all for just posting your well wishes to the newly weds, Joanne and Jan in her comments, so that she can pass them on.
Fox is holding her breath and crossing her fingers that this cluny motif continues to work out as well as it has so far.
