Bracelet, Flowers, Cross, Easter Egg and a Snowflake

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.


Prabhjyotsaini has posted pictures of previously tatted projects including a bracelet s bookmarks and hearts and a bracelet of her own design, some experimenting with beads and a daisy picot flower she designed.

StephanieGrace tatted another cross, this time in size 20 LizBeth Lemon Lt and Leafy Greens.
Barbara has started working from TATTED Easter Eggs by Kirsten Wind Hansen and this is Egg #1 made in Flora thread size 20, #17. Easter Egg #2 in book was done in Lizbeth size 20 colour #114 called Sea Shell and this was the first time she has done Josephine Knots. The last one is Egg #5 and she used variegated Lizbeth size 20 #131 and DMC Cebelia, size 30 for the white but the different size threads is really noticeable so she won't mix them again.

Brigitte tatted a Celtic snowflake designed by Sparrow Kelly, called Celeste, in DMC Cebelia size 20 white and light blue.

Gina has posted pictures of all the lovely tatting at the lace meeting, which I won't duplicate here, but you can follow the link to her blog and see them all there. Here is the name tag she was working on and she used glue to attach everything which worked out well. Sometimes you just can't sew things down when you are working with a surface that you can't, or don't want to poke needle holes through.
