Motifs, Bookmark,Baubles and Butterfly

Garyo tatted this motifs from Il Lavoro's Chicchierino 16 in Lisbeth #40 Denim Blue Light. Another motif from the same publication was done in DMC Cordonett Special #40.

Marta has continued to tat around baubles of various colours and has now added some covered rings into the mix.

Cindy has been exploring Elgiva Nichols' book on technique and history and playing around with what she thought was pearl tatting or purl tatting, except that pearl tatting isn't the same thing as purl knitting and old terms and new terms don't match, so it's been confusing.

Diane tatted this cross from the Motif section of Cathy Bryant's Tatting in size 40 Lizbeth, color #117 as a gift fro her friend Doug whose father just passed away.

Fox tatted this pattern from The Tatted Artistry of Teiko Fujito using Karey Solomon's #30 and Mercer #40 which were not the same size and the slight difference made the cupping of the second round difficult. She made several tries, adjusting picot sizes and threads but finally managed a beautiful piece of lace.

Gina has tatted another butterfly.This one is in Knitty Gritty with Warm Dark Chocolate for Autumn. The one made with Rhubarb Pie will be Spring, Summertime Trail will be Summer and Snowflake will be Winter and she will have a set of four for all four seasons.
