Lanyard, Doilies, Ice Drops, Pendants, Dangle, Ornaments, Earrings

The Guidelines
1. Permission to copy. When a participant joins they are authorizing me to copy their pictures to be shown on the challenge blog.
2. The blogs are ALL checked whenever there is an update using the links list in the sidebar on the right, there is no need to advise me that you have added new content. If your new items haven't shown up, it's because I haven't had time to do an update yet.
3. I 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. I don't read minds, so it's up to each participant to tell me when they have reached their goal of 25.
4. From past experience I know the challenge is addictive. If you finish and plan on doing it again let me know so that I continue to check your blog on a regular basis. Also let me know if once was enough so that I can move your blog to the list of past participants.
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.

Usha shares her lanyards, particularly good for using with glasses and made in a variety of ways incorporating dot picots

Vera didn't know the name of this pattern, but if you follow Diane's blog you'll recognize it as Mary Konior's Glass Mat, which Vera tatted in size 16 Eldorado thread, resulting in a doily that's 13-14 cm across.

Diane found these beautiful frosted dark blue glass gems on a recent shopping trip, and she loves the way they look with the Arctic Waters thread. She had a very productive day where she managed to tat 3 pendants. Her Mom's favourite colour is red, so she tatted this one in DMC Diamant for her. Subbing only left time for one Ice Drop.

Marie just has one more round to go on her doily. She's having fun making these dangles and she plans to post the pattern soon.

Sue has been busy, but she is working on another ornament. Her granddaughter finally got her "heart of Tafiti" necklace. She also worked on earrings for her granddaughters and the younger chose Sue's size 80 Yarnplayer's Small Maple Leaf earrings.
