I've been working on the 25 Motif Challenge and tatting earrings. I am up to Motif #15. I joined the challenge on March 3rd of this year, so it has only been 3-1/2 months and I've passed the halfway mark already. YEA!! This challenge has motivated me to keep tatting on a regular basis and photograph my tatting and post on my blog what I have achieved. I like that idea, as I have tatted so many things and gave them away without taking pictures of them. I'm sure there are many other tatters that do the same thing.
I have tatted Jane Eborall's Flat Snowflake Earring again. I love this earring pattern. This time I made them for my friend, Rayanna, who just had a birthday. I made them in her favorite color, purple. Earlier this year I taught Rayanna to tat. She was such a fast learner. She has even mastered split rings. Sometimes we get together in the evenings to tat, which is a lot of fun.
I tatted another earring from Jane's site, Flower Earring, these are almost like small bell shaped flowers. I like how they turned out and have the beads hanging down from the center of the flower.
The next earring that I made is a pattern by Nina Libin, Beaded Earring. I have had the pattern printed off for sometime now. I have always wanted to try this earring. There are a few variations to the pattern, just by adding more beads in a few places. I want to make a few more of these and experiment with different colors of thread and beads.
That's all for now. I have missed a few days on the computer and have to catch up on every one's blog and see what beautiful things others are tatting. Thanks for visiting my blog!! Happy Tats!
