Motif 23 & 24 - 25 Motif Challenge

Wow!  Where has the time gone!  I had hoped to finish my 25 Motif Challenge in January so I could start another one.  Now I need to make sure I finish it before 12th April.  Because of the limited time, I have opted to tat some small motifs.

First motif is Jon Yusoff's dragonfly motif which can be found on her Tat-a-Renda blog.  This dragonfly was so easy and quick to tat up.  Perfect pattern to use up the leftover thread on your shuttle.  I really like how the bigger wings sat on top of the smaller ones.

The second motif is a simple downward picot flower which can be found on Ring of Tatters website here.  You will need to scroll down to "Downward Picots" for the simple pattern.  This was a fun and quick motif to tat up.  It also allowed me to use up the leftover thread from another shuttle.  I now have two free shuttles!

Of course I had to take a pic of both motifs and try to create a picture out of it :).


One more motif to go then I better get back to Robin Perfetti's Frauberger Doily pattern.  I am nearly finished with the doily :).

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

Cheers,
Jenn :).

P.S. for more info about the challenge, please visit 25 Motif Challenge blog :).

  1. The motifs are so cute, love to see the progress on the doily by Robin, but you must be the kind of person that only post the finished project :) it is funny how fast time flies when tatting or wanting to.

    1. Thank you :). LOL it's not by choice! I do relief teacher aide work so have limited time to take in progress pics. I will try take a pic of the doily on my next free day :).

    1. Thanks muskaan :). LOL I wished I had a digital pen as it would have made it easier to draw :). I am happy as I now have 2 free shuttles to use :).
