Doily, Snowflake and Fragments

The Guidelines
1. Permission to copy. When a participant joins they are authorizing us to copy their pictures to be shown on the challenge blog.
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.


Kkommy is on round 6 of Debbie Arnold's Purple and Teal Square Doily. Diane's Tatting Tea Tuesday was made much more fun by sharing it with tatting friend LaceRN who is working on Anne Bruvold's Dragon Wing Doily while Diane works on a snowflake from 24 Snowflakes in Tatting by Lene Bjorn.
Marty had to give roll tatting a try, so she started with Mary Konior's fragments patterns is called Almond from the book "Tatting Patterns" using some of her sister's light and dark rainbow HDT. The first try she ran out of thread so she re wound the shuttle and tried again but the thread broke when she tried to unpick the ring. On the third try it worked and she accidentally ended up with the colour variations being very nearly perfectly matched on both sided of the fragment.
