Seahorse, Seahorse Dragon, Heart, Snowflake, Leaf, Doily, Earring and Edgings

Nami has created a cascade of flowers with a silver coloured thread for the tatted flower edged in blue crochet the perfectly matches the fine silver chain and aquamarine droplets in these earrings.
Fiyero has been away from tatting since March, but he's catching up now with a maplele leaf tatting in variegated thread, a small doily in white, a bookmark done in his old high shcool colours, a tatted heart and a snowflake of his own design. Diane has had a wonderful time tatting Anne's Seahorse Dragon that she thinks was done in size 20 Tropicana HDT from LadyShuttleMaker.
Fox wanted to use the same colours for the motif and the edging, but she ran out, so she's using his colour from a thread exchange as the nearest match. She had planned on using this edging from Ruth Perry but it seemed a bit too much for a little hat, so here it is back to a simple row of ring and chain with pretty blue beads.
Marty used Mark's Seahorse pattern on this baby onsie but it needed a little something that wasn't overwhelming. So she settled on a couple of little fish she made up and it not only won a blue first place ribbon, it was considered for the sweepstakes and got a high blue ribbon as well.
