Weekly Challenge #47 – Poppy Ice Drop

This week’s pattern is by the talented Helen Walters. It is an ice drop poppy and her first pattern. It was inspired by the tiny heart poppy pattern by Muskaan.

I love seeing poppy flowers bloom every Spring. They were a surprise across my backyard when we first moved into our house and I look forward to them every year.

As a symbol, the poppy serves as a reminder of those who fought and died in war. This symbolism was inspired be the WWI poem “In Flanders Fields” by Canadian physician Lieutenant-Colonel John McCrae. The poppy is often worn on November 11th [Armistice Day, Remembrance Day, Veterans Day] to commemorate military personnel who have died in war.

Her pattern is shared here with permission:

Weekly Challenge #45 – Cheeky Monkey

This week’s pattern is by the talented Nicola Bowersox. It is a playfully Cheeky Monkey.

It made my day when she shared it in the Tatting Facebook group. I immediately saved the pattern with the plan of tatting it for my brother on his birthday. Green was his favorite color, so my monkey has green eyes. He’s such a happy little guy!

Her pattern can be found at the following:

Cheeky Monkey Pattern by Nicola Bowersox. Tatted by Natalie Rogers in memory of Mikey.

This monkey pattern is adorable and I had a lot of fun tatting it up. I tatted my monkey in Liz Metallic Mocha Brown and Christmas Green – size 20. Using other thread types may require blocking/stiffening as a final touch for your “Cheeky Monkey”. I look forward to seeing a barrel full of monkeys as you complete yours!

Weekly Challenge #43 – GR-8 Butterfly

Gary and Randy, known as the Shuttle Brothers, make some pretty amazing shuttles, several great books, and some fun free patterns available on their webpage. Check out their site!

Today’s pattern is a butterfly that only takes one shuttle. In addition to basic techniques, this butterfly will give you practice with both finger tatting and the self closing mock ring [SCMR]. Mary helped the guild work through this pattern at our meeting earlier this month.
