2008-Motif #06 Challenge (5)
This is another finished WIP using what I believe is a 6-cord size 30 thread, I think by J.P. Coats. The pattern I used is "Lacy Medallion Luncheon Set" found in 'The Tatter's Treasure Chest' edited by Mary Carolyn Waldrep. This is the first time I have ever done split chains and split rings for climbing out round by round. I have done the split rings before, just not the split chains!
2008-Motif #07 Challenge.
This is a little project I was working on, more information will come later. I can tell you though, the thread used is DMC Cebelia size 30. The white beads are Mill Hill seed beads, the Other angel has Czech glass beads. The pattern design is by Eileen Stafford "Leens Tatted Angel"

This is an angel I made for a friend, again using the same thread and beads. The white thread came in my tatting exchange. THANK YOU Dr TLT (Tammy). The pattern is (besides the goof I made in the wings) by Eileen Stafford "Leens Tatted Angel".
2008-Motif #08 Challenge.
This is a pair of turtle earrings I made back when I went on a ski trip last Christmas with a girlfriend. I came down with the flu, so needless to say, I didn't leave the room. I still had a blast anyway. The pattern is from some cards from Palmetto tatting days, if I remember right 2004, but can't remember for sure.
2008-Motif #09 Challenge.
This is part of a round robin project I am participating in. The top one is a goof I made in the bookmark, making too many chains. My daughter LOVED it though, and wants a bracelet made like it. The bottom is actually what the bookmark is to look like, only I used a green for the chains. In both of these I used Rubi thread, a variegated purple and a variegated green. (quickely running out of my rubi threads LOL) Sure enjoying them though! The pattern design is by Gale Marshall - "Tatted Linked Ring"
Well I am FINALLY getting this somewhat caught up. Things around our house have been rather crazy! Despite all the craziness, I have at least been able to get some tatting done. I got pics of the tatting done, so as you can tell they are posted. But for my crocheting and knitting, I haven't gotten pics yet!
I'll start with my tatting Exchange! I entered the tatting exchange for March, and BOY did I get a surprise! My partner had the same idea, talk about 'great minds work alike!' We both made the "Chrysanthemum" by Gun Blomqvist and Elwy Persson. I made these two doilies:

Below is the goodie box I sent, but I also added a ball of Rubi variegated pink thread too.
Here is the doily I got from my tatting partner. Along with a ball of DMC Cebelia White size 30 thread and some really pretty white beads. Both will come in another post, if I can get the pics to posts.
