Same Motifs Joining Differently

This kind of motif is my favourite and I just wanted to tat something out of it.

First, I made the pale violet doily. It was very hot when I began to tat it, so I just joined motifs with one ring. I think this doily came out well. It looks cool because it has a lot of space. It even feel so light. Lighter than the pale blue one.

Then, I made the pale blue one. It got hotter and I hesitated a bit, but joined two rings each. Since the colour looks cool, it doesn't look so thick.

I'm lack of ability to create something original; now I know a little thing make things different.

A New Book and A New Shuttle

A new tatting lace book was published last month. If you translate the title, it would be _Tatting Lace: Accessories and Small Stuffs_ or something like that. Most of the works in this book are motifs. As you can see from the face of it, some motifs are turned into accessories as well. Some patterns call for SCMR and Cluney-like techniques.
Tatted Motif
I made a square motif from this book. I used Lisbeth #40 154, Wildflower Garden. I tatted it with a shuttle and a ball with SCMR.

To tat this motif, I used my new tatting shuttle. It's a new colour of Clover's tatting shuttle, milk.

So many new products make me scream with joy.

Sampler by Garyou

I've seen many lanyards lately and I want to make one. But I can't decide how I make a ring over a bead, with picots, without picots, or with small beads.
So, I just made a sampler and found out I need to practice to tat SCMR with a bead in center.
I tatted with silk thread, but cotton thread would be better? Maybe?
