Flowers, Baby Booties, Motifs, Snowflakes, Hearts and Dragons

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.

Heather is a new participant in the challenge and she has tatted the Magnolia Bloom Hair Barrette pattern by Nancy Tracy from Be-Stitched. It's done in DMC Cebelia size 10 threads in white and pink and measures about 5.5 cm across.

Michelle gave up on the first bootie pattern and has switched to Mary Konior's Goodie Two Shoes which she describes as lovely and involving no "fudging". Fudge of any kind in tatting is a no-no whether it's the chocolate kind or the pattern fixing kind.

Anne has finished the baby blanket and has scattered little motifs across it. There are six pair of Ringtrim dragons, six tatted wheels, six stars with different combinations of colours, Six hearts using the pattern designed by Christel Weidmann, And finally six flower trios designed by Anne.

Kat couldn't find a watch band for a favourite watch and ended up buying a watch just for the band. That left her with a watch face that she has added a tatted flower to. It looks to me like it could have a pin added to it and be worn as a brooch.
