Flowers, Leaves, Edging, Heart, Earrings, Motifs, Bookmarks, Butterfly, Doilies, and Necklace

Frivole found she had to pay attention with the leaf instructions and only one out of three was satisfactory and it was easy to attach the flowers in the wrong place. Then when she was assembling them she found that either the leaves won't lay flat or the flowers bunch up. Judging by the number of people having trouble with it, it seems to be a design that looks easy, but isn't until you've had some practice.

Mariya has been designing rather than just tatting and the result is this charming wavy braid for which she has provided the pattern.

Jess worked out a split ring alternative to her One shuttle chevron Heart Lizbeth 40 Azalea Md. She has been playing around with colours using 4 shuttles just to see what it would look like, but keeping track of them all might just drive you mad.

Prabhjyot tatted Yarnplayer's Carnival earring pattern using her Sugar Maple HDT and that makes it her first 25 done.

Kristen hasn't been tatting a lot but she finally got back to it with Lyn Morton's 4-petal "Peggy" from her book Tatting Patterns.

Jessica tatted this glove as a custom order with the rings in ecru and the chains in natural for a very subtle alternative to pure white.

SunshineCraft tatted the Riego grapes bookmark, as interpreted by Martha Ess. This was followed by the Beaded Jabot from Yusai Shokoin's Tatting Ideas. Finally she did the Flora butterfly from Adelheid Dangela's Tatted Butterflies book.

Diane used the Scottish Heather collection of Oliver Twists hand-dyed machine thread to tat Kersti's Stumpy for some motifs to be make Chris's "Tatted Shuttles".

Fox, in true Fox style, chopped off a necessary picot while doeing some tatting surgery to correct an earlier mistake. All I can say is, better you than me. In spite of this the "cookie monster" progresses and finally is completed in Lizbeth #40 with small, green, outer Delicas from Tatting Fool and large green beads are from Crazy Mom. Teiko Fujito's pattern is in process with all it's myriad little pieces, and here it is, all done in Lizbeth #40.

Orsi has joined the Tat Along which she finds very interesting because of the leaves.

Sherry gives us a sneak peak into her new book Branching Encapsulation with this design called Wisteria.
