Motifs, Bookmarks, Butterfly, Windmill, Collar, Doilies, Earrings, Pouch and Horse

Jenn tatted a motif pattern from Tina Frauberger's tatting book (1919) that Elaine P Gan had drawn the diagram for and found it to be an easy tat.

Muskaan choose this beautiful Dandelion Chain Link Bookmark as her first Teri Dusenbury project. She gives detailed instructions on what she did to make this enchanting bookmark.

Batty Tatter has a couple of bookmarks and a butterfly done. She thinks the butterfly might go on a card.

Sue has a start on Jane Eborall's Windmill. The finished windmill is done in Lizbeth Twirlz and some ecru from a part ball in her stash.

Ancolie wanted to create a large collar, but at this point she doesn't like like and and is wondering if maybe variegated colours would be prettier.

Diane tatted motif No. 5 from Tatting by Myra Piper and she's wondering if she could make it with a finding in the centre. No. 6 should make a pretty doily centre. Motif No. 7 was a fun tat, but not one that she's likely to tat again. She dug into her stash today and pulled out a ball of size 20 Omega for motifs No. 9 and No. 10 and she doesn't thing the variegated thread worked well on these motifs.

Fox attached the wrong side of the motif to the centre which of course resulted in snipping and this soft thread isn't winning any awards with her. On the other hand there is progress on the doily and Renulek's collar. Like Ancolie she thinks the collar is too big, but she bought the thread specifically for it and she has invested all of this time already, so she has decided to finish it.

Marie made these earrings with a lt blue Cats-eye, using silver sewing thread. She tatted more of Carollyn's strawberry pouches; this one was made with variegated red/green Lizbeth, size 20 thread. Another one done in pink is for a special little girl.

Wanda finished her horse picture using neutral kraft paper as a background.The Horse (Foal) by Inga Madsen is from Tatted Animals done in Lizbeth  Silver #605 and Mocha Brown Dk #692, size 20, the Lady Bug is by Sue Hanson in #671 Christmas Red, size 20 the Bunny doodle was made in Mocha Brown Dk #692, size 20 and the Dandelion and collage ideas from Tatting Collage by Lindsay Rogers.
