multiply me roundup 2

Pin It now!

 I enjoy doing roundups, despite the time it takes to collect, notate, organise pics. The reason is that I get to see them up close and often notice something I had seen before. Little tweaks, embellishments, etc. Occasionally the tatter gives us some details when they post; most often they don't. Hence, roundups are an eye-opener. 

Continuing from my previous post (, here are the remaining models for #MultiplyMeEndrucks Oct2023 game.

7. Margaret Davies - 3  We have another regular player in Margaret, always with her own take. 

Inspired by the bead placements in my earrings, Margaret tatted this lovely parure! I'm sure she will share more details when she blogs about it. (

8. Michelle Forclaz - 3 also tatted 3 motifs but just look ---
Now isn't that one super cute turtle! It is great to see what another tatter sees.

Her second, and
third motifs in soft shades while playing with options and effects. Notice how she inserted a single round of beige in the pink rosette!

9. Paola Bevilacqua - 3  Paola is never far behind either!

The Iris pendant complete with a 2-colour split ring braid. It appears like she used 3 shades in the pendant.
Her 5-point adaptation to cover the top of a bauble ornament, and
a 6-point adaptation at the lower end! Both motifs are sewn together with the same thread.

10. Silvana Buonvino - 3  Always happy to see Silvana's regular and enthusiastic participation in our games!
Her first motif in metallic threads and a few beads sewn in later.

Iris pendant in gold with white seed beads and a lovely cord for the necklace.

This came in a yesterday as a wonderful surprise. The Multiply Me Flower Flake where she shortened the chains between the arms to (2 - 2) and used long decorative picots instead of wide picots.  

11. Alicia Fullana - 2  Our new member

She appliqued the first motif on a bow neck shirt. Notice the colour switch in the rosette. And  she clearly did not use lock joins.  

Her second motif is appliqued on a short sleeve shirt!

12. Antonia Lai - 2   loves to participate regularly, too!

Her first Iris pendant, and
her second Iris pendant! She started tatting with metallic threads quite recently.

13. Cynthia Dooley - 2  is one of our needle tatters. She tatted both these bookmarks a while back, but we asked her to enter them in the game. 
Her first motif as a square with a lovely ombre effect, and an interlocking SR braid as tail, ending with a 3-layered flower charm.
Her second motif is displayed as a diamond with the tail emerging from a tip. Here the charm is a 2-layered flower. 
It's a great way to use motifs and also to learn techniques.

14. Debra F. Cox - 2  an enthusiastic learner-tatter

Lovely shade of blue, and I love the addition of grey. She says she's working on a multicolour mat. Waiting to see how it turns out!

15. Mariola Siwek - 1  I got to see her beautiful tatting when she participated in the DAL Celtic Snowflake 'challenge'.
She took up the task of flattening the Multiply Me Flower Flake ( and used double picots instead of wide picots.
She shared her simple solution - start with an increased count in the rosette and reduce the number of rounds! Beyond this, she did not change anything. It's a beautiful variation.
I will try to upload the final pdf including these variations as soon as possible. 

16. Martina Reinhold - 1  our first-time participant and hopefully a regular.
This vibrantly coloured motif with alternating colours in the rosette, is her submission.

17. Reiko Akamatsu - 1   our hugely talented volunteer and participant!
She tatted the Iris pendant as a motif. She actually worked a half-finished prototype/trial before making this lovely version.

18. Riva Nudelman - 1  We are getting to see more of her tatting ...
A beautiful rendition in two colours!

And with that, we come to the end of the roundup for or October game. There are always a few straddlers that I show in a separate post. 

In this post we have 12 tatters with 24 models including variations. 
This brings us to a total of 18 participants and 66 models, with numerous variations and adaptations! [UPDATE 17th Nov 2023: 5 more models have been received, taking the grand total to 71!]
All the images are uploaded to our FB album and the variations are uploaded to respective Directories. Links are at the top of the right panel in this blog.

Many many many thanks to all our participants for multiplying the joy
