Motif, Bookmarks, Cross and a Cardinal

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.

Orsi has continued her experiment with the Napoleon theme motifs and her newest edition is a triangular shape.
Nancy loves jellybeans. The bookmark pattern by Kendra Goodnow is found in the fall 2010 Handy Hands newsletter.
Bev aka BJ is ready to start a beaded butterfly bookmark, but decided to do a refresher on tatting with beads first.

Brigitte went to the the annual Lace Embrace meeting and bought two colors of Venus Size 40 thread which she tried out the by making this tiny cross from Patty Duff's book Mini Tats and some size 15 beads.
Kathy tatted Miranda's awesome cardinal using size 20 Christmas Lizbeth, and mounted it in a hinged 4x3 inch glass fixture.
