Angel, Earrings, Doilies, Motifs and Necklace

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.

Ginny figures she has about 3 more inches of mignonette tatting to do on this skirt, which she has been working with a picot gauge to keep it nice and even.

Marta has 2 more pair of Carnival earrings done, Pierrot and Harlequin again making use of Jane Eborall's pattern.

Diane managed to finish tatting round 5 of Doily 4 from Tatted Fashion by Teiko Fujito and it's now 6 3/4 inches.

Fox has finally figured out the bead placement for Corina Meyfeldt's Beaded Flower Pattern, which she did in Lizbeth size 40, Scottish Thistle.

Marie tatted this pattern called, 6-Hearts from her first book, Tattasaurusing: Baubles and Motifs in Lizbeth, Victorian red.

Sue's Sunburst (spiderweb) doily is now under her angel where it gets a great deal of attention. She has displayed several piece of her tatting as well as the doily she won from Jon's blog which sits under a glow in the dark dolphin.
