Motifs, Pumpkins, Edgings, Doily and Bookmark

Hattalahutta tatted the Small Cross from Mary Konior's Tatting with Visual Patterns in Lizbeth 20 in "Vineyard Harvest" and Puppets/Eldorado in black. She had to modify the stitch count a bit because the 2 threads aren't an exact match in size.

Sue has round 9 of the doily completed and it's about 14.5 inches across now.
Linda has been making Halloween postcards. The first postcard uses a wheel from Patty Duff's Motif Book for a wheelbarrow, pumpkins from Sherry Matthew and the bat and pumpkin edging from Mark Myers. The second postcard is crazy quilt with Mark Myer's ghost and Sherry Matthew's pumpkin and a pumpkin edging from Heidi Sunday. The Pumpkin teapot is an easy pattern from Martha Ess that makes a nice tea cup coaster.

Diane has been on a shopping spree buying all kinds of tatting treats including some size 80 Lizbeth and one of Shirl's upcycled shuttles that she's already had a chance to try out.

Fox made a small motif with some Sulky thread, but the mock rings weren't a good choice. So she looked for a different design to try and the next one was much better, although retro tatting mistakes was difficult. So she tried again and slowed down to enjoy the experience with this shiny and metallic copper and brown, rust and gold thread and mostly had success.
