Doily and Shuttelbug plus Hearts, Butterflies and Edgings auctioned off

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.
Crazykwilter used Earring #2 pattern by Kendra Goodnow from Needle Tatting With Style Book 1. Then she just added more rounds beginning with yellow and worked her way to orange, using more of her hand dyed color wheel experiments in size 70 thread.
Isa has tatted another of Jane Eborall's Shuttle bugs. This one is in size 50 thread and is a little larger.
Linda shows the tatting that was done for the International Crazy Quilting Scholarship Funds. The tatting was placed into small decorated plastic containers and auctioned off for $21.
