Bookmarks, Necklaces, Earrings, Doilies, Edging, Motifs, Ornament, Dragons, Bracelet and Suncatcher

mb duke joins the challenge with Jane's Bookmark Cross adapted by Grace Tan.

Carrie finished Marilee Rockley's Remembrance ring which  will go to a friend in Indianapolis.

Laurie has learned to tat cluny leaves and proudly shows us her two first clunies.

Jane finished the choker and made a pair of twirly earrings to go with it. Jon's Daisy Pin is the flower that Jane used to make this bib necklace. She dyed some thread in preparation for tatting Gunhild's pattern Diana, then found the winding and unwinding to get the beads in the right place was a bit of a challenge.

Wooroosa is back to tatting after a long hiatus, with this lovely pastel doily.

Kristen started on a flowery decoration from Projects in Tatting to be used on a pillowcase. It didn't go well. So of course she tried again, and again and the chains just won't lay right.So she set it aside for now and picked up another design that she can use in a row.

Cindy finished round 3 of the Jan Stawasz doily without any trouble and went on to round 4. Here's round 4 in Lizbeth Latte Foam, Size 20 completed.

Diane's latest Spinning Wheel Glass Mat by Mary Konior is done in Gold Dust HDT by Marilee Rockley. She had enough of the thread left over to make a cross bookmark but she isn't crazy about how the tassel looks. All of these lovelies were tatting in one skein of the Gold Dust thread. She has another Workbasket cross started.

Fox's favourite feline is surrounded in tatting. The Suzanne Schwencke’s patterns and is a really interesting tat done in Karey Solomon's HDT. A coin saved from Queen Elizabeth's coronation has a new home in a tiny felt pocket decorated with tatting. This little one inch pattern is by Jennifer WIlliams. Using her arsenal of pencils, markers and scissors, she has called upon all of her pattern aids to master this design.

Marie tatted Camilla, another cross form Tatted Bookmarks, by Lene Bjorn. This is one of the Christmas balls she made for an aunt and forgot to take a picture of it at the time.

Martha's strange looking tatted bit was a trial run for a spectacular dragon. Then there's the baby dragon.

Michelle wanted to makes something special for her daughter for her prom. Frivole generously shared the pattern for the bracelet base. Add a couple of flowers and some leaves and the result if a keepsake wrist corsage the perfectly matches her daughter's dress.  Anika's HDT, both colors were used for this Rita Weiss' design bookmark. The little cross was a present for a colleague. Jane's bookmark that Grace Tan converted into this lovely cross, would have looked even better in 2 colours.

Sue tatted more suncatchers, one in size 40 Lizbeth Island Breeze with blue beads and one in size 40 Lizbeth Scottish Thistle and purple and green beads. The Hearts bookmarks by Dee Powell from the book Tatted Bookmarks Needle & Shuttle.  is tatted in size 40 Tat-ilicious HDT from Jess called Queen Anthias but when it was dampened for blocking the colour ran a little, so this is one she'll keep. She used size 40 Lizbeth paired with quilting thread for the chains and doubled that stitch count on the chains to tat the Blue Coaster from the Big Book of Tatting designs by Darlene Polachic, which obviously isn't blue.
