Motifs, Snowflakes, Bookmarks, Doilies, Edging, Pin, Earrings, Necklaces, Butterflies, Lady and Kite

Cheryl has decided that rather than give up on her mistakes that she'd flaunt them on a pair of jeans. I love it!
Prabhjyotsaini tatted Jon Yusoff's Daisy Picot Snowflake to practice daisy picots. Then she tried Hearts in a Snowflake which didn't come out as well as she's hoped. Maybe it was the beads.
Bree likes her first attempt at this bookmark and has plans to make mor ein other colours. She has received her first batch of buttons to turn into snowflakes and these will be going out soon.
Diane tatted her favourite pattern; the Spinning Wheel glass mat from Tatting with Visual Patterns by Mary Konior in HDT Navy Greens from Jess! She thinks the colour looks good as a snowflake. So she did Doodad Snowflake #6 using the same size 40 Navy Greens HDT. Then of course there was Doodad Snowflake #2, again in Navy Greens from Jess! I think I see a pattern developing here.
Fox used some vintage thread that Ladytats sent her to tat this Jennifer Williams design. These hankies that Fox lovingly tatted were given to some dear family friends who seemed less than excited by them. Some people just don't know treasures when they see them. This next motif tatted in Ladytats’s Grandmother’s thread is the 5-pointed motif as written by Jennifer Williams. The second one also from Jennifer Williams looks very different from the one tatted by Frivole the other day.
Isdihara tatted this Horse on a Paperclip with Lizbeth 40 Spice Cake #182 and the pattern is taken from the Knight piece in Ineke Kuiperij's Chess Set book.
Jess used her size 40 Blue Ridge to tat one of Jane Eborall's button brooches.
Marie tatted these earrings for her shop, but decided to keep them. Of course this pendant was a good match, so she decided to keep it too and now all she needs is a bracelet to finish the set. Her husband's grandmother's cameo necklace was adorned with tatting in ecru number 50 thread and the peach was pearl cotton #12.
Martha shares her exploration of Let's Tat by Angeline Critchlow with a few of the things she made. Martha is working on a new book, and tempting us with this teaser.
Orsi did these 2 sets of earrings and hand dyed the colourful thread used on the first pair. She also did matching necklaces.
Wanda had all of her earrings and wine glass charms ready for the craft show mounted on cards, but she hadn't given any thought as to how to display them. Add a little ingenuity and a bit of garland and the results are amazing.

I'm really excited about starting this.
