Suncatcher, Earrings, Bookmarks, Edging, Doilies, Motifs, Snowflakes, Flowers and Bracelets

Margaret embellished one of her cards with a tatted dream catcher. The earrings are Marilee's design from her tatting course. She successfully completed the entwined rings.

Marie tatted another corner bookmark with size 10 crochet thread using Nina Libin's design.

Linda's July CQ block is done with the usual bit of tatting embellishment.

Ancolie has a bookmark done and an edging pattern from the German book Occhi by Marianne Langweiser and Tatiana Scharowa.

Diane restarted Mary Konior's Flowerpiece doily from Tatting with Visual Patterns to fix a mistake she made earlier.This is the first section of chain trails, she forgot to take a picture of the second section. Here is the finished Flowerpiece done in size 40 Lizbeth, color #155, Ocean Sunset and it measures about 7.5 inches. Miranda issued a challenge to create the tatted doily pictured on a piece of fabric and this is Diane's first round using size 20 Lizbeth, color #163, Blue Ice.

Fox has been tatting a Mary Konior in #40 Lizbeth while at the hospital with her Mum. Sadly her Mum passed away on Saturday and we'll be remembering her in prayer.

Frances has been using interlocking rings as centres for her snowflakes.

Frivole attempted Rosalie by Rachel Colvin Jackson with its interlocking rings centre but the beads were too large so she did it again. It still didn't meet with her approval so she did it again. Her work space is littered with the bodies of fallen soldiers.

Jess is using some of her size 40 HDT to tat a coin purse. She plans on having a flap closure with a large button. Buttons also make a good basis for a hair pin. here are some more motifs on buttons.

Michelle finally had enough time to make Frivole's Minuet. She used Jess' Calliope to make one of the Julie Patterson bookmarks, Petals from Just Marking Tome. Magic Moment from Rachael Mohler made with a Messy Jessy HDT which looks just like cotton candy.

Sue has all 60 bracelets completed and ready for the August event. Now she's working on some edgings and motifs for her MIL for Christmas.

Flowers, Doily, Bookmarks, Motifs, Earrings, Necklaces, Heart, Edging, Snowflakes, Bracelet and Butterflies

Wooroosa has been tatting rather than trying to sleep in the heat. The motif is Anemone from Iris Niebach's Tatting Fantasia #1 tatted in Lizbeth colour 118 size 40 which was given to her by her friend.

Marie tatted the Glass Doily adapted by Kendra Goodnow from Senco Book and worked in Lizbeth, size 20, Tropical Punch. She tatted the Roses are Red motif from Victats in pearl cotton size 8. The Corner Bookmark from Nina Libin's, Lace of Beads was done in size 10 crochet cotton.

Lelia received a lovely tatted rose motif when she got together with the Tollway tatters. She has been going through the on-line tatting lessons via Craftsy and has noticed an improvement in her tatting. Origami and tatting look like a good mix.

Axa tatted these earrings with fine metallic thread and beads.

Garyo tatted Mary Konior's Black Magic in Lizbeth #40 Turquoise Col.657, Green #679 and then in Lizbeth #40 Green #679 and she thinks the second one is improved so she's wondering if the next one would be even better. Then she made Nina Libin's bead-tatted motif in silk thread with beads for bead weaving. Threading the beads was annoying but the result is neat.

Marta has created a necklace that looks like a royal icing confection. Do you wear it or eat it?

Bonnie tatted Romantic Heart with directions by Beelizabeth using HDT thread for a friend who is retiring.

Fox has re-done her Heart for Misha and she's writing up the pattern now. This sample was done in Lizbeth size 40.

Frances bought some thread from Jess which she thinks is Western Red size 20 but she lost the label, that she tatted into a length of edging from Tatted Doilies and Edgings by Rita Weiss and when she finds a centre that it fits, it will be completed. She is also tatting snowflakes for a project like this one done in size 10 white and this snowflake modified edging with blue beads also in size 10.

Frivole is having fun with lots of layered flowers. She is intrigued by Rachel Colvin Jackson's Rosalie pattern but she doesn't needle tat and as a consequence has been looking for a video to help her shuttle tat it. Finally, here is her first interlocking rings rosette.

Jess is thinking of entering something in the fair and she's been working on Mary Maynard's Tatting a 4 square ring in Havana size 40. This bracelet was done with hand wound thread one strand of size 40 Lizbeth Turquoise Light and one of Purple Medium. The center medallion on this bracelet is one of Sherry's ceramic medallions backed in blue jean material with Mindanao Gum size 40 HDT. This little flower was tatted with Size 20 Stardust.

Kelly found time to tat Mary Konior`s Spinning Wheel in size 40 Lizbeth colour #154 Wildflower Garden and she really enjoyed tatting it.

Martha was having tatter's block until she paired up Tatted Butterflies by Adelheid Dangela with Karey Solomon's hand painted County Fair HDT. Gorgeous thread, gorgeous butterflies, what's not to love?

Michelle had a horrible rainy day for the fleamarket and consequently not much in the way of sales. This is her final rose design, a lovely bracelet.

Wanda used Sherry's Branching Encapsulation and Lizbeth Lime Green #679, Bright Orange #695, Autumn Orange Medium #696, Lemon Light #614, and Leaf Green Dark #676, all in size 20 to create a stunning photo album as a wedding gift done in the wedding colours.
