Edging, Snowflakes, Earrings, Necklaces, Bracelet, Pendants, Christmas Trees, Doilies and Ornaments

Muskaan has resumed her deconstruction of the magic square to show some of the many patterns with in patterns, this time looking at edgings and a cross. Her next project is showing variations on interlocking split ring braids.

Batty Tatter has two patterns from her latest book purchase, Tatted Snowflakes by Vida Sunderman.
Lilas received her tiny Preciosa beads and immediately set about searching for the perfect pattern. The results are these lovely earrings with a Swarovski crystal drop. She created 2 lovely floral necklace designs worked in white. The simple bracelet done in lavender and white uses a  traditional, yet elegant design.

Sue tatted a fun to do snowflake design by Robin Perfetti. Then she did Jon Yusoff's square again, but this time she added beads.

mb duke tatted this square pendant for a friend who does square dancing and was inundated with requests for more. It was a relief to tat snowflakes like this one by Renulek and this one she did in red by Jon Yusoff from Elegant Tatting Gems. This Christmas tree earring is a variation of a design by Jane Eborall.

Fox has been working on interminable repeats on an enormous round of a gigantic design and made a little "oopsie", a time or two, or three... After the crying, and cutting, and fixing, she slogged on through. There is an end... isn't there? The saga of the Monster doily continues.

IsDihara posts a remembrance of Bobbie Demmer, a long time tatter, designer, teacher and tatting mentor to many who passed away November 20th. The Christmas Berry wreath by LaRae Mikulecky is a lovely addition to anyone's Christmas ornament collection.

Kristen is working some three shuttle tatting in preparation for her next book review. The Tatted Artistry of Teiko Fujito has motifs worked with one, two and three shuttles, motifs for the advanced tatter, motifs inspired by nature and edgings.

Marie found some brass keys at an estate sale that just needed a little something.

Wanda was pleased with the craft sale where her tatting brought her a profit this year. The Christmas tree decked out in tatting was a great success. She discovered some turkey doodles in her stash and may give them pin backings or used them as Thanksgiving table decorations.
