Bracelet, Earrings, Necklace, Heart, Fower, Lady, Edging and Motifs

Marta was intrigued years ago by patterned beads and bought some Fimo so that she could make her own. Recently she uncovered her beads and decided to add them to a tatted bracelet. The results are a unique one of a kind bracelet.

Magda wanted to do something with the gold thread she had, but didn't like the pattern, so she decided to do something on her own, incorporating delicate iridescent round beads and a mother of pearl leaf in these earrings. Then she wanted a matching necklace but the twisted cord didn't stay in place so the pendant is a modified design.

Orsi has morphed her recently created edging into a heart that just happens to be her 25th motif.

Isabel has decided that since this is the third anniversary of her tatting, that she would start working on techniques that she liked but scared her. She has also decided to change the look of the pictures she uploads.

Linda has continued to work on CQ blocks. For the Victorian themed block she tatted a Crinoline Lady from Pam Palmer's book, "Tatting Treats Two", using size 80, Lizbeth 615, Yellow LT thread and embroidered on a bouquet of flowers. More tatted motifs have been stitched in the corner and an edging of Mary Konior's leaf braid in Lizbeth 40, 124 Spring Garden was stitched along a seam with little clusters of beads.

Brigitte tatted the rosette design by Jon Yusoff using Altin Basak size 50 thread that works up between a size 20 and 30.

Claudia tatted the central flower with DMC perle cotton thread size 8 in variegated Lila, from a modification of a pattern by Jeanne Luggert and it makes a very pretty pin.

Fox was sent a vintage pattern and decided to tat it with DMC Perle thread on a Boye shuttle and surprisingly, she likes the thread and the shuttle. The pattern confused her a little and it took several tries because she though the depicted tatting was a single motif. It made more sense when she realized there were 2. When she returned from her trip she found a package in the mail that included lots of goodies including this charming case and a butterfly tatted by Kelly, which Fox thought looked better when it was stitched onto the case. And finally, here is a picture of all the tatting she got done while away.
