Bookmarks, Doily, Dragon, Flowers and Motifs

Yvonne tatted some of the flowers from her new book, Tatting Rings of Flowers. The next motif from Mini Tats is made in size 10 using LT Pastels colour and she thinks she might turn it into a Christmas ornament.

Bree tatted the motif called Elegance from Lyn Morton's Tatting Patterns in #10 DMC cotton in soft yellow.
Corina used a carpet needle and yarn to tat Kersti's Floral bookmark. The second motif is from Georgia Seitz site is made with much finer thread.

Sue tatted Mary Konior's Large Cross in Lizbeth Lilac Dk size 40 and then did the Small Cross in Lizbeth Fruit Fizz and Lilac Dk. size 40, but made a mistake which was cleverly covered up by a butterfly.

Cindy has been practicing lots of techniques, but hasn't really finished anything.

Ann's lovely tatting press finally arrived and I've had the opportunity to try it out. It's a wonderful way to carry your tatting keep it neat and not have any tangled shuttles.

Fox is tatting Anne's dragon pattern in their favourite colours for her grandchildren to be given to them in December. She's sending the hats decorated with Umintsuru's dragonfly pattern to New York. She has plans to use some of the fine threads received from the thread exchange to tat the vintage motif she showed us earlier.

Kelly used Lizbeth Autumn Spice to tat Mary Konior's Spinning Wheel glass mat.

Martha has been busy tatting lots of things including Pamela Kite's Christina Edging from Georgia's Tatting Online book in Lizbeth variegated #130 and Raspberry Pink #623. Anne B's Seahorse Dragon was tatted in handpainted thread by Karey Solomon and a silver/grey Lizbeth. The Blooming Trellis Bookmark by Eliz is worked in assorted vintage size 70/80 thread. Lauren Snyder's Pearl Tatted Bookmark is also from the Tatting Online book.
