Weekly Challenge #17 – Flower Small Motif

This week’s pattern was created by Jane Eborall. It is a lovely flower motif and I have fallen in love with it. If you look to closely at my picture you will find my mistake. Personally, I think it turned out beautiful, but I could be biased as it was worked up in my favorite color and now I look forward to fall.  Be sure to check out Jane’s other amazing patterns!

Link to her pattern, Small Motif: http://www.janeeborall.freeservers.com/Smallmotif.pdf

It can lay flat (especially if you don’t make my mistake of adding extra stitches), but I liked the way it was naturally curving. I hope you have as much fun with this pattern as I did.

Wednesday’s Weekly Challenge #15 – Tat It And See 2013

WARNING!!!! Natalie is out this week, tatting away like crazy so I am in charge of this week’s Challenge.

Weekly Challenge #15 -Surprise! Jane Eborall Tat it and See 2013

This week’s pattern is from Jane Eborall and is one of her yearly Tat it and See. The idea behind it is that you don’t know what you are making until you get to the end, unless you figure it out sooner. I did this earlier in the year and it was a lot of fun, especially when you are working with a magnificent pattern writer like Jane. The trick is NOT to look ahead. You will be tempted. You will think, just a little peek. Don’t, just do that day, Then move to the next. Since we are doing this late in the game, we do get the advantage of having all days available so we can work it all in one sitting if we wish. But work them in order, one at a time and enjoy the challenge.

In order to finish this before the nest Wednesday Challenge, I am going to do 2 days at a time. After a few days I will set up another post so we can post pictures as we follow along. Lets get this started.

You can find Jane Eborall at any of these locations:

Pinterest: http://pinterest.com/tattingjane/
Etsy: http://www.etsy.com/shop/janeeborall
Tatting Patterns: http://www.janeeborall.freeservers.com/

I warn you, clear your day before you head out to Jane’s blog. She has no much information and free patterns you will look up and find out your whole afternoon is lost. I know from experience. Enjoy.

Weekly Challenge #14 – Sweetheart Snowflake

This week’s pattern is a variation of Gina Butler’s Garter pattern. This variation was created by Natalie Rogers. It is shared here with Gina’s permission. The idea for a snowflake came to me as I was working through Gina’s lovely garter pattern. I had hoped to have it ready for you last week as a “Christmas in July” type post, but my computer did not cooperate with me. So here it is a week later. I hope you enjoy it!

I haven’t written up very many patterns – so please tell me if you find a mistake or have suggestions. Thanks!

Weekly Challenge #13 – Ringtrim – a Microdragon

This week’s pattern was designed by Anne Bruvold. Anne’s Flying Minor Norwegian Dragon was featured as Challenge #2. Anne created Ringtrim for tatters to practice their tatted rings. This pattern utilizes both single shuttle split rings and split rings. The wing also allows tatters to practice throwing a ring off of a split ring. If you choose to work in a single color you can get away with just split rings, but I encourage you to make him as directed at least once.

A special thanks to Shuttlebirds Guild Member, Denice Lewis, for bringing this cute pattern to my attention! You can see several dragons Denice tatted and shared at our last guild meeting in the reader submissions section below.

Weekly Challenge #10

This week’s pattern was my first accidental variation while following a pattern.  Accidents can be very pretty things. You are getting one of my patterns this week for a couple of reasons. One is that I have company in town (my awesome Mum-in-law and my Aussie grandmother, who is currently visiting the states) – so I’m a bit pressed for tatting time. Secondly, today is a day that I remember my forever 13 brother – I love and miss him lots. So hearts for everyone. Family is wonderful and I do hope that everyone is able to take some time to enjoy their family and friends.

Source for the pattern I was following – “Priscilla Yoke Ear Rings” provided by Elain Gan on her blog: http://tattingpatterns.blogspot.com/2012/03/priscilla-yoke-earrings.html You should check out the other patterns she has on her blog as well!

The pattern for the original medallion can be found in Priscilla Yoke Book by Georgette Batt (for a pdf copy visit: http://www.antiquepatternlibrary.org). It is located on pages 32 and 33.
