Butterflies, Dragons, and Geometric Shapes

Jeff here, doing the Monday update. Since this is my first time updating the 25 Motif Challenge page, please be gentle. Hopefully I didn't miss anyone, but if I did, it wasn't intentional.

Heather is one busy lady. She has posted a really pretty butterfly using size 10 thread. As always, she has posted the pattern. She was also challenged by her husband to tat a VW Baja Bug. I can’t wait to see the results.

While the rest of the family were out, Ais tatted a cool little triangle in size 8 pearl cotton. Unfortunately, she doesn’t remember where she found the pattern. Perhaps someone out in Tatting Land knows?

Ellen has been tatting more of her butterflies. They are so realistic; better be careful Ellen, they may fly away! She also shares some crocheted doilies that she received in an exchange as well as a couple cross stitched name tags. All beautiful.

I have made two more of Anne’s dragons. One was done in turquoise Omega thread in size 30. And the second one in Pamela’s Coral Reef HDT in size 30. Both dragons will join the blue one I made earlier in the mug.

shows us some fabric samples she won in a give away as well as some crocheted Romanian Point Lace cord.

Laura shows us her progress with the Starlight Doily from the Tatter's Treasure Chest, done in Pamela’s Coral Reef HDT. Beautiful work Laura!

Norma shows us the knitted lace socks she made while “watching” the Olympics. She also shares some embroidery stitches and her first attempt at bobbin lace. Way to go Norma! I gotta learn bobbin lace someday.

Pamela is busy dying thread and trying to get her online shop running. I’m sure the HDT Addicts out there are waiting in anticipation for her shop to open.

Sherry has been hanging out with the birds for inspiration for her latest HDT. Looks like she was distracted by all the pretty colours. Sherry is also teasing us with another hint for the TIAS she is going to be hosting.

Zarina has gotten the heavy parts of her Master’s completed. She has also been busy dying thread. Sound like another shop will be opening online. Zarina posts some pictures taken in the heart of Kuala Lumpur
