Motifs, Bracelet, Necklaces, Edging, Letter, Butterflies, Doilies, Bookmarks, Hearts, Earrings, Pin, Fairy, Collar and Flowers

Margaret has mastered the interlocking rings using Lizbeth no 20 Raspberry Frappe although it looks purple in the picture. This is the bracelet from Marilee's course called Classic Edge, but not having a lot of size 10 she used Altin Basak #3054 so she had to do a few more rings on the pattern.

Marie tatted another daisy switching the colours to Lizbeth size 20 in Leaf Green and Autumn Spice. Another Daisy in Mountain Breeze and Leaf Green.

Garyo bought some new Clover shuttles and she finds that they are a bit thicker that the old ones which means they hold more thread, but they are a little more uncomfortable to hold especially with small hands.

Kristen has tatted the letter F to do a set of monogram coasters for a wedding gift for her brother.

Linda share a honey of a CQ block with a tatted dragonfly. A tatted wheel decorates her August block.

Diane took Miranda's Tat This challenge and used a 10 ring centre to tat the first doily. Then she learned that the doily was actually the first rounds of Nancy Tracy's Mom's Pink Doily, so she did it again in green following Nancy's pattern and there is quite a difference in size. The grandchildren were on hand for the day and got to choose their favourite laces to take home. Then they chose thread and asked grandma to make a doily, a heart, and a star and Lily chose size 40 Lizbeth, #137, Berry Burst and Mom's Pink Doily by Nancy Tracy, but just the first 3 rounds.

Fox tatted this design by Julie Patterson in HDT by Tatskool with sparkly blue thread from Suneeti. The Heart for Misha pattern is available now in her Etsy shop. Julie Patterson's Around The Rings is tatted in Jess's HDT. Tatting Fool sent Fox this photo of her rendition of Maeve, a free pattern by Fox.

Frivole was going to make earrings by decided instead to use Karey Solomon's County Fair HDT with Lizbeth in Natural to make a brooch based on the same layered flower idea. She added the dangly pearls at different lengths and with different size freshwater pearls. They are attached with tiny Josephine knots to give added texture and interest. Here are the earrings she made for herself with Karey's threads. She played a bit more with the interlocking rings in this two-tone neutral colour rosette to make a brooch for her mother but she wasn't satisfied with the results. Edwige Renaudin teasingly put a picture of this motif in her book saying the method would be in the next book and Frivole was challenged to give it a try and she likes the effects of the rolled ring. Here is Mary's Butterfly tatted in Jess's hand-dyed thread called Havana.

Jess's daughter received a tooth fairy card in the mail from Mrs. Sarah adorned with Jane Eborall's Fairy and lots for tatted flowers. Jess has tatted more motifs on buttons. Here is Heart for Misha by Fox in size 40 Lizbeth Gold and a special HDT with a shell doughnut bead for the middle. Another motif on a button was attached to layers of tulle around a ring for a suncatcher.

Kathy used Lizbeth Spring Garden size 20 to tat these interlocking rings then mounted it on a black velvet disk for a pendant. The lace collar is designed by Gloria Crowther and sits on her necklace display stand.

Michelle tatted Fox's Heart for Misha in size 80 vintage thread. She tatted Eye Spy from Julie Patterson Just Marking Tome with Mindanao Gum colorway, size 40 thread from Jess.

Orsi doesn't like to tat with beads but she had an experiment with this little flower motif.

Sue's MIL hung these suncatchers from paperclips around the lampshade. The Band-Aid Heart by Vicki Clarke is tatted in size 10 Lizbeth Latte Foam, and the heart is done in size 40 Lizbeth Raspberry Pink Med.

Wanda tatted a Graduation Cross Bookmark based on an old pattern done in Lizbeth #115 "Springtime" size 20.
