Anne McCombs had submitted her version of Marilee’s snowflake:

Melt Into Spring by Marilee Rockley

Melt Into Spring by Marilee Rockley

She writes, “I enjoyed the snowflake and learning the daisy picot, though I didn’t quite have the idea at first, and would probably do a better job if I made a second example. Oddly, I had the most trouble with the second round, although it was just straightforward tatting. The folded join was troublesome; for some reason, the ring thread kept getting entangled with the trefoil. This piece was done in Lizbeth #20. I ran out of time to make this week’s earring by Dagmar, though I’d still like to try.”

Nice work Anne. I can’t wait to see your next piece!
See you in class!

2015-V by Nina Libin

This is Anne McCombs version. She writes, “ I didn’t have any significant problems, though I somehow kept getting the wrong number of beads onto the loop for the last ring and had to untat. First 16, then 13, then finally the correct 14. Beautiful design; I’m quite pleased.” Thank you Anne for sharing.

Well done!! See you in class!

First off, I want to apologize for this not appearing right away on the blog. I thought everything was OK, but my internet connection didn’t cooperate. Then it was a few days before I could sit down and figure out where the post ended up. Teach me to go smell the roses before I got everything logged! So, here’s what we missed of Donna Jensen’s tatting:
