Bracelet, Butterfly, Doily, Heart, Leaves, Motifs, Necklace, and Ornaments

Ingrid is still waiting for her thread to arrive, so she started in on Iris Niebach's Cornelia and she managed to get quite a lot done because it was dark and rainy.
Magda has another selection of ball ornaments decked out with tatting. These balls are gold matte and shiny with red and gold twist Rexor Altin Basak size 50.
Diane has received in return for her decoupaged shuttles, a pink one with a floral decoration and a tatted butterfly and leaves.
Fox used 2 strands of the Valdani thread together for this beaded motif she gave to her sister. The hats decorated with tatted dragonflies have been received by the boys and they love them and now there's a pretty pink heart on the one for the little lady. After all these great successes, Fox has been stumbling around with one of Iris' patterns, giving it several tries but she finally sat down and mastered it to the point where she not only gets it done, she understands it.

Lily finished the mystery motif which turned out to be Jeff Hamilton's Sine Wave Star, but it seemed to cup a lot and she added a cluster of beads to the centre and it will be turned into a brooch. She used a pattern in one of the Handy Hands newsletters for a necklace and turned it into a choker with crystal tear-drop beads. All it needs now is a proper closure.
