2. There is no need to advise the Challenge Team to let let us know when you've added things to your blog. We check all of the blogs when we do an update.
3. We can't keep track of how many motifs each person does. You may post articles of tatting that you don't plan on including in your 25, or you may post a pair of earrings and count each earring as a separate motif. We don't read minds, so it's up to each participant to tell us when they have reached their goal of 25.
4. We know from past experience that the challenge is addictive. If you finish and plan on doing it again let us know so that we continue to check your blog on a regular basis.
5. Whenever you get a chance don't just view the pictures here, take the time to click on the links to people's blogs and read all about what they are doing, instead of just getting the snippets of it here. People like it when you take the time to visit their blog and comment on their work. A lot of the fun of the challenge is that we get to know each other and encourage one another to try new things.
Agasunset had one of those moments when an apparently failed project was perfect for a different purpose and a new mask was born with a matching new necklace.
Cindy is finding that sewing in all of the ends a lot of motifs is a chore, but the MT trick is creating so many loops in her work that it's frustrating.
Wanda's blog is sporting a tatted flag and red and blue star for Independence Day.
Aileen has a lot of alphabet beads leftover from making scissors fobs and she has incorporated them into tatted bookmarks. Yarnplayer's simple butterfly bookmark in perle 8, Jane Eborall's Butterfly bookmark in size 20 Milford with size 11/0 beads and Kersti Anear's Tabatha in size 20 Milford. The necklace is Kersti Anear's Half Moon Dreaming in size 10 being modeled here by her sister.
Fox is still working on clunies, then there was a little problem so she started again. The orange motif that Maeve's older brother wanted mysteriously came apart. So, she tatted one in his favourite colour, and added orange beads. With persistence she managed to complete Elisadusud's pattern in Yarnplayer's 'Celery' HDT, #40. She also completed a tatted ring for Agasunset using some of the metallic thread that Suneeti sent her. It was a bear to tat with but the effect is lovely.
Shirley finally gets to show us what happened to all the hearts she did. Here they are appliqued onto a wedding blanket. Each of the ladies contributed what they did best making this labour of love into a unique gift. What an awesome treasure!
