Shuttles in motion

Know what I said about not letting so much time pass before the next post?
Well, preparing for and going on multiple camping trips kind of left only a little time for tatting.
But now that those trips are done, the shuttles are back in motion!

Done in size 10.

First off, I was invited to a baby shower, and tatted the baby's name using the patterns from The Tatter's Paradise. What can I say? I like these alphabet patterns.

Done in Lizbeth size 20, #132 and #684. Motif #15 of my second challenge.

This cute little Shuttlebug is another Jane Eborall pattern.
And it is adorable.
I enjoyed tatting this, though I decided to leave out the beads and change the eye beads into downward facing picots. This little fella is cute whether you add beads or leave them out.

Done in Lizbeth size 20, #604 and #656.

And here is another simple bookmark that I made for a friend. It is an easy pattern which I whipped off the shuttle, and is really similar to the Easy Bookmark from Learn to Tat by Janette Baker.

I've a few other pieces completed, but still need to take pictures of them. So until next time, I hope that all of your projects go well!
