Motif 9 - 25 Motif Challenge

For Motif 9, I tatted a motif pattern from Tina Frauberger's tatting book (1919).  Elaine P Gan had  drawn the diagram for this pattern and I tested it for her.  This was a fun and easy pattern to tat.  I will have to tat this pattern again with a solid coloured thread :).

 
That's it for now.  Thanks for visiting my blog :).

Cheers,
Jenn :).

Motif 8 - 25 Motif Challenge

The Heart's Desire pattern by Susan K. Fuller has been on my "To Tat List" since I saw it shared on Facebook.  I finally had some time and decided to tat it as my 8th Motif.  I tatted this using the pattern shared on Le Blog De Frivole (all the way at the bottom of the web page).


There are a few mistakes but hopefully they are not noticeable as I tatted the same mistake on both sides of the heart :).  Now to block and stiffen the motif for my 7yo daughter :).

That's it for now.  Thanks for visiting my blog :).

Cheers,
Jenn :).

Motif 7 - 25 Motif Challenge

For Motif 7, I tatted the Dahlia Motif from the New Tatting book by Tomoko Morimoto.  This was a fun and easy pattern to tat.  I am looking forward to trying the other lovely patterns in the book :).


This book is available on Book Depository (free worldwide postage) or as an eBook from Interweave Store.

That's it for now.  Thanks for visiting my blog :).

Cheers,
Jenn :).

Motif 5 & 6 - 25 Motif Challenge

I love the look of the Trio de Trèfles pattern on Le Blog de Friovle and decided to tat all 3 patterns as my fifth motif :).


For Motif 6, I tatted the leaf pattern titled La Feuille Frivole also on Le Blog de Friovle.  Not perfect but still adorable!  Will have to tat a few more of these :).


All these patterns were easy to understand and follow.  I had so much fun tatting these leaves.  Hoping to attempt the Maple leaf pattern (Feuille d'Érable du Québec) next :).

That's it for now.  Thanks for visiting my blog :).

Cheers,
Jenn :).

Motif 4 - 25 Motif Challenge

Long time no post!  I have been tatting but could not find the time to weave in ends, take pics and blog about my tatting.  My kids went back to school for Term 3 last week so I have finally caught up with weaving in ends and taking pics :).

For Motif 4, I tatted the Lantana Pendant by Elaine P Gan from Tatting Box on Facebook.  This was a fun and easy pattern to tat.  Will have to tat this pattern again with a solid coloured thread :).


That's it for now.  Thanks for visiting my blog :).

Cheers,
Jenn :).
