drop earrings

I found this pair of drop earrings tatted in very light yellow DMC thread with violet beads in my collection which I tatted some time ago.  Background is folkart roses done on a box.

Handkerchief edging

So far I have never sewn any of my tatted edgings onto handkerchiefs as I do not know how to.  I am now struggling to get this Asters edging by Mary Konior book onto the not so square handkerchief.  Wonder if I should stretch my tatted edging or leave it loose?

Pearl Angel

This is SSSR Angel from Anne Bruyold.  I have added tiny pearls so the skirt looks longer and flowy.

Medallion on Edge

This pattern is definitely from the book Tatting Patterns by Julia E Sanders.  Its one of the medallion on the edge of a big cloth.  I used DMC 20 violet coloured thread.  Doesn't it look beautiful against my lamp shade.  I have still not decided whether to leave as is or add more rows and turn it into a doily.  Will see.....
