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.

Julie began with the cross in Christmas Angels and Other Tatting Patterns by Monica Hahn and tweaked it with some additional picots and shortening the chains in the middle so they didn't overlap. It's tatted in size 20 Lizbeth in Tropical Punch and Azalea Medium.
Stephanie Grace tatted the seahorse pattern by Debbie Arnold in Lizbeth silver and gold size 20 even though it was scary to start with, she did manage to get it finished.
Diane tatted the Rick-Rack Star from Oh My Stars! by Kaye B. Judt and if she does it again she'll use smaller joining picots.
Fox tatted the pattern from Kaye B. Judt's Oh My Stars! again, this time with beads. She also shares a picture of one of the wee ladies she tats for. Check out those socks!

Gina used Tatskool's Berry Burst, size 40, and Venus Black, size 40 to tat Nora from Tatted Butterflies by Adelheid Dangela. The butterfly looks marvellous on my screen by Gina thinks the colours in the picture are washed out.
