This necklace, bracelet, earrings and ring set is made using Jeanie Lugert's  3d rose  using no 20 thread in cream and gold with lots of beads. Bugle and seed beads were used
The challenge was to take Jeanie's rose and created some jewellery. This is my effort.

This little bookmark is worked in no 40 thread. Graduated split rings for the tail
This selection of work includes a bridal bag tatted in cream no 20 thread featuring lots of beads and pearls plus some inverted tatting flowers on the sides.
The flowers are brunsfelzia commonly known as yesterday, today and tomorrow that is the love will last, small blue forget-me-nots  and blue trefoils with double picots on the centre petal.
The tatting consists of a little bit of node stitch- the rough patch in the marriage, lots of lattice for the intertwining of the lives, spiral tatting for the many twists and turns ahead mignonette for the froth and bubble of married life, gold for wealth and pearls for health and happiness.
The little basket is embroidered calico using the fancy stitches on my sewing machine and the circular foot attachment then a small tatted edge around the top.
The small mauve box is decorated with tatting.
You can just see the edge of a wedding horshoe.

A tatted  cover for a bedside table, simple tatting plus lots of beads.
A collection of small pumpkin bags just big enough to take tatting

This little bag is made from a bra decorated mainly in pink to promote breast  screen.
It was a fun project and created lots of interest  when shown on display . Breast Screen made us big posters to go with the display. With this side I have used lots of different techniques.

This doyley was worked in no 40 thread using 1 colour for ball and a contrast for shuttle. The pattern has been published in several books   but is very effective in 2 colours.
