Stars, Motifs, and a Cross

Hello again. This should be a fairly short update. And with any luck, Sharon will be doing the next update.

After avoiding adding beads to tatting, Anika has discovered that they aren't so terrible. She started tatting a motif from 24 Julestjerner i Orkis, which translates to 24 Christmas Stars in Tatting (I think). After the motif began bunching up, she altered the pattern. Anika used her own HDT in size 20 or 50.

Bonnie had just finished tatting Julie's Hearts and Flower Cross, when she noticed that she forgot a join, and had just cut the threads. She was able to fix it and learned a lesson too. The lesson being, not to show her friend she is teaching to tat her mistakes!

Fox is trying to master single shuttle tatting with bare ends showing. Looks good to me. Next she tatted Ratnawilis from Jon Yussof's newest snowflake book Tatting Gems. Tatted using Lizbeth size 20 thread in light pink.

Diane's doily is coming along. She's about halfway around the second last row. Diane hopes to finish the doily this week. I can't wait to see it finished.
