Earrings, Necklace, Bracelet, Motifs, Ferret, Bookmarks, Seahorse, Heart and Doily

Karen has tatted star earrings out of Lyn Morton's book which she says are loads of fun and easy to make. She wore the grey ones to work and someone asked her if they had to be washed regularly to keep them looking good. I don't wear earrings, but I do wear tatted barettes quite often and I hardly ever have to wash them. Any other thoughts?
Magda has a delightful surprise on her blog. She has given us the patterns for some of her recent pieces including the garter, the medallion necklace and a bracelet.
Kat has been tatting a mat using Mary Konior's Patchwork. She has 6 done and 10 more to complete, but that wll have to wait until after she moves.
Corina did her first block tatting project, two little ferrets, in Finca 16 from the new book by Martha Ess.
Cindy has conquered SCMRs, or at least almost, now she just needs a do over to tighten up the tension, beat the chains into submission and make the joins behave properly. I think it's one of those things, what do you call it? Oh yeah, practice.
Aileen tatted Anne Bruvold's Seahorse Dragon in size 20 Lizbeth Summer Fun while she was on a holiday with her sister.
Anne shares a picture of a votive candle cover done by Melanie, who is blogless. Melanie used Anne's Christmas Heart in two colours on the rings and got a nice flower and leaf effect.
Diane finished the first round of the "Lucky Clover" doily from Tatting Patterns and Designs by Gun Blomqvist and Elwy Persson using Anchor color #131, size 40. Here is another Stumpy set but she can't find the ball of thread so she doesn't have the details. The edging is from Tatting by Penelope done in Lizbeth #128, size 40. Anne Bruvold's Dragon Wing Doily pattern done in Flora color #209, size 20 it doesn't have the wow factor in this colour. (Personally I like the one Steph did.)

WOW- another day of wonderful pieces of tatting! Loving the seahorse dragon especially, but everything is terrific!
