Edgings, Motifs, Flowers, Heart, Doily and Snowflake

Julie saw several hankies while antiquing, but only one of them came home with her as she found the edging intriguing. She has a lovely silvery green thread that's a perfect match for the embroidered leaves on this hanky, but when she tried tatting Mary Konior's Snake Chains it's looked frayed almost immediately. Maybe she'll have to try another design like this one.

IsDihara has posted a tribute to Doretha Albee 1935-2011, the editor of Tatting Knots and Notes newsletter, along with a picture of one of the many designs Doretha created. This one was tatted by Carol Lawecki.

Claudia tatted another flower from pattern by Takako Kitano in DMC perle cotton 8 , in variegated lilac and orange for the flowers, green for the tail and cluny leaves. The bouquet is wrapped in a mignonette motif, using anchor thread #8 in white. It this ever cute! In the online class they reviewed split chains using this clever candy cane design.

Diane nearly forgot to tat her May snowflake for the Snowflake A Month Challenge at The Tatting Forums, but she was saved by the tiny "Itsy-Bitsy Snowflake" from A Veritable Tatted Blizzard by Samantha Melnychuk.

Fox tatted Elisa's cluny heart again to balance out the boredom of tatting more hanky edging. It's coming along, but she needed a break. She also tatted one of Patti Duff's Mini Tats motifs.

Kelly has been working on this logo for the Fringe Element Tatters that has just been voted on. She is currently making a doily in Coats size 30 thread and using a very fine needle, which explains why she has been poked and stabbed a lot. has been poked and stabbed a lot.

Sue wanted something to do and ended up making this snowflake called the Cloverleaf Snowflake from Tatted Snowflakes by Vida Sunderman in Lizbeth size 40 Snow White. Pretty and delicate.

Grandma Wanda was distracted and forgot to tat booties for the little one. So she opted for adding tatted floral motifs to some socks for the baptismal ceremony and then decorated a second pair for later.
