Edging, Doilies, Motifs, Knight and Dragon

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.
6. Tatting 25 motifs in a year typically means tatting 2 motifs per month. Tatters who do not post any tatting content for 5 or 6 months will be removed from the list of participants.

Jane has written out her Folded Ring Flower Edging pattern for those who may want to tat it.

Diane's granddaughter wanted an update on her doily which is being worked in Green Coral Sea and Jelly Bean.

Fox is working on a pattern by  Sumi Fujishigi from a Japanese book. She did a little motif with block tatting for practice and is (im)patiently waiting for her Valdani thread to come.

Martha's tiny tatted knight may not be very impressive on his own. But he's ready to valiently slay the dragon and win his lady's hand.
