There comes a time in every tatter's life that we must challenge ourselves to become the best tatter we can be...I have, after deep thought, ponderance, meditation....and okay I'm just B.S-ing
you guys. I thought it would be fun to finally just jump in there and do the 25 Motif challenge. Woo Hoo!
So with out further ado I present to you
Motif #1 The Wheel of Fortune Heart.
This little heart is made from HDT (hand dyed thread) called Yummy Grapefruit and Seaweed both in size 20 and dyed and sold by LadyShuttleMaker. The colors are so scrumptious that I kept having the urge to consume rainbow sherbet and lime sherbet while tatting this heart. Does anyone know why? That was a hypothetical question, just in case anyone was wondering...hee hee. The Wheel of Fortune Heart is designed by Teri Dusenbury.
Next we have
Motif #2 My Version of Karin's Scrunchie
You remember Karin right? She and I were partners for the May Bookmark Exchange. I used size 20 thread for mine and it took a long time. Karin used size 10 and I'll bet it didn't take as much time. It looks like YarnPlayer tatted one, too this week. Yay!!!!! GO SCRUNCHIES!!!! Let's see everybody's scrunchies out there in tatting blogger land!!! Yarnplayer makes some awesome possum HDT's, too. You can pick some of those up here if ya want. I have not been so fortunate yet as to have acquired some of hers, but I will (rubs hands together, sniveling) I will....heh heh heh...just you wait.
Karin has posted the pattern for her size 10 tatted scrunchie here for anyone who wants to try it. I highly recommend trying it in size 10 as it will go much faster you will have to tat far less rings to get around the elastic band. I used size 20 and it looks like we used the same amount of double stitches to get the ring around the elastic band so it is the same pattern just more rings have to be tatted.
Well thank you for popping by to share in some of my tatting insanity this week....er wait...did I say tatting insanity? I meant to say Tatting FUN!!! Yes, thank you for coming by to share in all the tatting fun going on around here.
Come on in, look around and leave a comment or two if you feel so inclined. I'm not prejudiced against non-tatters at all infact I'm related to several...I have several non-tatter friends. Tatter's are also welcome....I just didn't want all the tatters to feel left out from all the non-tatter talk. Okay, 'nough said? Comments are always welcome. Let me know if there's anything I can help you with tatting wise.
