The pink butterfly is "The Deaconess Butterfly" from the pattern rewritten by Carolyn Groves. I tatted it in Flora size 20, color #37.
The beads are from my stash and are probably about size 11, and the black beads are the same. It is a medium size butterfly, measuring 1 1/4 x 2 3/4".

The bookmarks are my version of flower #35 from Mary Maynard's book "Tatting Rings of Flowers". The larger one is 2" and uses DMC size 20, color #799 with a small amount of white from my stash. The other is 1 1/2" and is also size 20, in Lady Shuttlemakers HDT "Shades of Gray" (lovely to look at and to work with).

The snowflake is "Aladdin" from Jon Yusoff's "Tatted Snowflake Collection". I used Flora color #55 in size 20, It measures just under 3". Her patterns are wonderful--just enough difficulty to make them interesting.

I'm always impressed with your beautiful tatting - and your creative spirit! I'm just now catching up on your recent posts.

The wedding blanket was a wonderful project, and the tatted embellishments are very special. Beautifully done!

I also love the Sabina Carden-Madden butterfly. It's the first time I've seen her name.

And your cute doggie looks quite content!
