Glenda is working on a beautiful handkerchief edging. I look forward to seeing this piece when it is complete. Thank you for sharing it with us Glenda!
Anne joined us for September’s guild meeting and shared these bracelets and earrings that she has been working on. They look beautiful!
She also shared several quilt blocks that she has added tatting to (I forgot to take pictures, so just imagine really amazing looking quilt blocks demonstrating lots of different hobbies and skills).
Thanks for sharing with us Anne!

Welcome back to the Wednesday Weekly Challenge. Each Wednesday we will be posting a tatting related challenge (usually in the form of a free tatting pattern link) and challenging you, the reader, to try it. When a pattern link is provided, we will also post a picture of how our tatting turned out when we followed the pattern. Following the challenge, we will feature reader completions of past challenges. So submit your completed work whether it be from challenge #1, 29, or the current challenge. All submissions will be posted in the next week’s challenge.
Challenge Issued: Follow the linked pattern in any color combinations and thread sizes you choose. [Variations of the pattern are welcome and encouraged.] Then snap a picture and send it to email@example.com with the subject line “Weekly Challenge” (or post it in the comments) to see your completed work featured as part of next week’s challenge post. Be sure to include the name you wish us to list with your photo – we want to give you credit! [There is no time limit on sending in your picture - feel free to send in any weekly challenge pictures (from last week or weeks/months ago) and we will feature them as part of the next Wednesday's post.]
Weekly Challenge #44 – Painted Lady Butterfly (No Beads)
This week’s pattern is by the talented Jane Eborall. It is her beautiful painted lady butterfly.
This pattern will give you some practice with split rings and I really like how the crocheted antennae look.
This butterfly is lots of fun! Enjoy!
