Words from the Knot House

Welcome back to the Wednesday Weekly Challenge.  Each Wednesday we will be posting a link to a free pattern and challenging you, the reader, to try it.  In addition to the pattern link, we will 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.

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 sbspokane@yahoo.com with the subject line “Weekly Challenge” 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 #31 – Doodad Design

This week’s pattern is by the talented Martha Ess! She has several wonderful patterns. You should check out all the places she is online (and her books!). I especially find her “Tatting Origins” blog to be an interesting read.

Pattern: Doodad Design #1

Martha Ess’s Doodad Design #1 – Tatted by Natalie Rogers

I have been wanting to do this lovely design for quite a while. I’m glad I finally took the time. I hope you enjoy tatting it as much as I did.

You can find Martha Ess at the following locations:

Blog: Martha’s Tatting Blog
Blog: Tatting Origins
Pattern Page: Tat’s Amoré  [Martha says to hurry and print the ones you’d like to use. Her provider is discontinuing the pages very soon and she is not sure when she will get these patterns back up]
Etsy: esstats

Shuttlebirds’ Reader Spotlight: This is where your tatting will be featured each week you contribute.

I love seeing what everyone tats! I do hope to see some of your creations this week!
