Doilies, Bracelet, Teapot, Pin, Earrings, Bookmarks, Heart, Ornament and Suncatcher

Aysh is working on Bukiet kwiatow w wazonie from the Jan Stawasz book, Frywolitka, where she's counting each round as a motif. Whatever keeps you tatting is a great idea.

Cigdem has been creating some new laces like this Black Lace Slave Bracelet. Lizbeth threads in black and several sizes of faceted jet black glass beads were used.

mb duke used White and Royal Blue Lizbeth size 20 to tat Martha's Maltese Tea Set from Tea is for Tatting.

Marta created this ANKARS inspired piece and then created earrings to match in a lovely green thread and an assortment of different beads.

Carrie has been tatting an assortment of variations on Dianna Stevens' Simple Bookmark in size 10 ecru, pink, white, and size 20 cream. Then she messed up the chains on one done in size 10 white, but maintained uniformity in her mistake, so it still looks good. Another Janette Baker bookmark, in size 10 white. A bunch of about 30 flowers all tatted in size 10 using Leila's pattern, and patterns from Lindsay Rogers' book Tatting Collage, are ready to be layered  into hair pins. A few variations on the Kersti's Stumpy Bookmark in size 10 pink and white. Finally, this is Birgit's Celtic Heart in Southmaid variegated pink and Coats ecru, both size 10, which she made for her Aunt Maryann. If she doesn't count the flowers, this makes it another 25 motifs completed.


Cindy loved the Cranberry Bush Lizbeth thread in beautiful Christmas colours and she loved the photo on Pinterest of this pretty edging she wanted to try. It seemed like it would make a perfect Christmas ornament, which it just didn't match what she had pictured in her head. The advantage to this situation is that when she tries it again she'll end up with 2 pretty ornaments instead of one.

Diane managed another 12 repeats on this row of her doily. Progress gets slower the larger the rounds are and she figures she'll get it done in time to start snowflakes for Christmas.

Martha shared her block for the Flower quilt. This is the block for the Teapot quilt. The teapot is her own pattern, and the curlicues are inspired by the Flower & Vine pattern Ruth Perry/Rozella Linden shared with the online class.

Sue's mother-in-law wants 2 more suncatchers for her lampshade so she did the Silver Charm Suncatcher Ornament from the Big Book of Tatting by Darlene Polachic in Lizbeth size 40 Autumn Spice, and Honey Drizzle, for Christmas.
