Train, Cat, Squirrel Edging, Motifs, Butterfly, Doilies, Necklace, Earrings, Bracelet, Suncatcher and Bow

Batty Tatter added a puff of smoke and an edging to the pink engineer's hat which she is keeping for herself. She tatted Mr. Whiskers from Inga Madsen's Tatted Animals. The squirrel is also from Inga Madsen's book and these animals are fun to do.

Melanie discovered a little mistake on her doubleweave sample edging but she's decided to keep on going. This is how she dealt with her design challenge. She plans to enter it in the fair and will show us the finished work after the fair.

Lelia shows the practice pieces / motifs, patterns handed out for the IOLI Tat-Off in Indianapolis, IN.

Diane needs to exercise her wrist a different way so all that she has tatted recently is one little butterfly.

Fox is slowly but surely making progress on her doily which is now 8 inches across.

Marie was given "Il Mio Chiacchierino", number 11 and she had to tat this jewelry set, which she worked in three strands of embroidery sewing thread instead of the size 10 used in the pattern. Here are the matching, curly earrings. To round out the set, here is the bracelet.

Sue used size 20 Over the Rainbow HDT to tat this suncatcher for a friend. You can see her progress on the doily which is pictured here with the Christmas tree edging that she will be using for a bow. THis closer picture shows the thread colour better.
