E17 - 3D Egg Shell.

E17 - 3D Egg Shell.- one half. 
This could well be a mini bowl!

E31 - Lacy Bowl (partial)
This is what she said - "My bowl did not work well as I chose the wrong thread. It is cotton embroidery thread and is so difficult to tatt. I like the colors though.
I did not complete the whole pattern.

It goes well with little chicks. Perhaps I make it as a pin cushion cover.
I enjoyed the pattern and will do it again.

As always, Anna tatted more than just one! She is a 'Faster Tatter'!

As you can see in the roundups, most participants tatted more than one beautiful model and also played at creatively displaying their work. Most of them have also participated in several of our games and continue to do so. It is what gives us extra energy to think up new ideas for each game of the month.

We would also like to extend a special thanks to Brookie, Daniela, Krystyna, and Paola Bevilacqua for taking the time and effort to share their derivative patterns in time for the game! 

A huge thanks and hugs from 
Ninetta and muskaan
Many many thanks to all our talented participants and designers!
