Motifs, Doilies, Bracelet and Earrings

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.

Ingrid just let the inspiration flow and tatted these lovely motifs with some beads rescued from a dearly loved sweater.

Sue is working hard on the tablecloth and she has row 8 completed. Since her table is oval, this one won't be for her.

Wanda is working hard on a doily design but having to try new things and retro tat slows the process down. Here's her progress so far and the snippet we can see looks really lovely. Sue's daughter suggested that the bookmark done in Caribean would make a lovely bracelet, and she was right.

BSOTF is busy keeping the little ones occupied so they don't scratch at the chicken pox. Fortunately she received her own distraction in the form of Corina's giveaway that she won.

Wally shows us the earrings she did in size 10 in white and red with gold beads, based on a Mary Maynard pattern that was discussed in the online class.
