Snowflakes, Pendants, Earrings, Edging, Wreath, Ice Drops, Lucky Penny, Doilies, Star, Ornaments, Angels, Cross, and 3D Christmas Trees

Pop Maria tatted Day 15 of Lenen Bjorn's 24 Snowflakes in Tatting, followed by Day 16. The folks at Craftree have been regularly tatting the snowflakes in this book so that at the end of the year the whole collection would be done. Here are Days 17, 18, 19, 21, 22, 23 and 24.

Sarah enjoys the multiple nested shapes, and the clever way Lenore English formed the clover/trefoil at the tips of the inner star one January Reflections snowflake where one ring is made in the round with the star, and the two on either side are made in the following round, and join at the base of the centre ring.

Sue made herself earrings and pendant from Marilee Rockley's latest book and they remind her of summer and watermelons in the sun.

Cindy thought this shade of green would work perfectly with the towel, but now that the tatting is done she's not so sure. This tatted wreath ornament is from when she first learned to tat and she made a lot of them to give away.

Diane is filling up her little tree with Ice Drops so that her guests will have lots to choose from on Christmas Eve. Another day and she added three more Ice Drops to her tree. She finished another Spinning Wheel glass mat from Tatting with Visual Patterns by Mary Konior; this time it's in size 20 Lizbeth #615, Yellow Light. Tidying and cleaning left little time for tatting, so she only got one more Ice Drop done. She used some festive shuttles to work on her next Spinning Wheel. Three more Ice Drops are helping to fill her little tree back up. The Spinning Wheel glass mat, from Tatting with Visual Patterns by Mary Konior, in size 20 Lizbeth #689, Mint Light. In spite of warm temperatures, Diane has more Ice Drops. Diane shows how she ties the ribbon on to the Ice Drops and then secures it with a dot of glue. In honour of Rudolph there are lots of Ice Drops in red. Her friend Maria received her Ice Drop and Lucky Penny and immediately put them on her tree.

Fox is still zipping along through this row, thanks in part to Rita's large, smooth and wonderful shuttles that hold a lot of thread. She's now on the penultimate row of Renulek's doily.

Jane is giving Frivole's latest star patterns a whirl. The beads she used on her North star are a better fit than the pearls she used on her first try. The sentiment on this tatting never gets old.

Lilas shows a lovely tatted ornament and a Christmas greeting. This Christmas ball pattern is by Renulek.

Marie shows us her 3rd version of princess earrings. She can't remember where she found this angel pattern. This one is II Chiacchierine by Anteneela De Nittis. This one is from Be-Stitched. This wee angel was found on Pinterest. She doesn't know where this cross came from either. Here are all the treasures from her secret Santa.

Muskaan had to give Ice Drops a try and shows her progress through the pattern. She tatted Grace Tan's 3D Christmas Tree with ornaments which turned out 2 inches high in size 20 thread.

Happy Holidays, to you and yours, Sharon. Thank you for all you do on this site all year long, year after year! It is much appreciated by me and I think many other tatters.
