More projects from Tat Days

Is anyone there? Is this thing on? Did everybody go home? Aren't these sweet? The Seaside Tatters made the I Heart tatting striver and Marie Smith made the flowers one.

Anyway, here are pictures of more projects. Here's the short key.
You can plainly see where I knotted and didn't hide ends. I need to hide those better.

Here's the bracelet from Sandra's class. I bought her kit, so she provided the beads & I provided the thread. It's the same as the key. Alas, I did not get a picture of Sandra, who taught the class.
 But I did get a picture of someone else's bracelet. She bought the beads for $.79 at Big Lots, I think. Nice, huh?
This is the owl from Riet's night owl class. I forgot to take a picture of the one I made that evening but this is one I made on the way home.

Here are some of the displays in the 'Show Off'. The two doilies belong to Jane E, I'm fairly certain.

 I don't know who made this jewelry, separate individuals, I think. But they do show a range of possibilities, don't they?

 Randy made the mosquito. It's a big one, bigger than my hand. That would hurt if it bit, wouldn't it?
 Here are the quilts that were raffled. First up, cherry branches with tatted blossoms and appliqued pictures.

Here's a detail of the one above

A single branch with cherry blossoms and butterflies
This is the quilt of t-shirts of years past. I've been to 6 of them. 7 if you include this year.

All that pink are tatted blossoms; plus there are more flowers in the grass and background

Silly Lynne, she said "take a picture"

Cute little ort basket someone had in one of the classes

Kaye's Tatted acorn and the acorn I brought to color match my thread

Kaye Judt, who taught the acorn class; very sweet lady (laughs just like the actress K. Najimi)
Yarnplayer, we had that class together
And this is the dark hyacinth thread I got from her (greedy chortle)

Yes, indeed, what a welcome little happy dance down memory lane. Your made me smile, as I have had a similar reaction to Yarnplayer's scrumptions threads many times.

FYI - the top jewelry was made by Jane's sister, Sally Kerson.

I enjoyed having you in my class, as always! You are a LOT of fun!

Good to see pictures of Tat Days again. It was I who made the jewelery - Jane's sister!

It was such a good time, wasn't it? You've got a wonderful array of photos. I admit to being impressed with all of the tatting skill represented, but the size and realism of that mosquito still bothers me, LOL :)

Thanks, all. These aren't even all the pictures. I just didn't want too many in one post.
