Tatting patterns with the added 'fun' factor.
This blog is for the patterns which I'm going to list in 'parts' on my web site. These I'm calling the 'Tat It And See' (TIAS) as the finished result will not be seen until the pattern has been completed!!!
One of the joys of running a 'no rules' game like the TIAS is that - well, there are no rules!!!
That means that I get lots of lovely surprises as time goes on. Today I have had another pair of scissors (number 109) AND another sailing boat which is number - well, I've lost count, I'm afraid! Thanks to Andrea today has been a great day.
109. "HI Jane, Here are my sailing boat and shears... finally! The boat got mislaid after I finished it and I had to catch up on the shears after decorating my lounge and then being ill for a while! I loved both designs and very much appreciate all the work you put into this fun project. Thank you. xx Best Wishes Andrea x"
Whoooppeeeeee - another pair of scissors. Well, two pictures as they are of day 12 and day 13. Thank you, Claire. Here's her comment.
108. "Hello Jane, Sorry for the delay in sending you the pictures of the last two steps of the TIAS. We have had some visitors from France, and everything got backlogged. So, here are my pictures of day 12 and day 13, as well as the link to the related blog post. Thank you so much for creating this lovely model of tatted scissors, and offering this fun game. I loved looking at the pictures from each tatter. It was amazing to see that tatters from all around the world participated in this game. Can't wait to see what you have planned for next year. ;-)
Have a great week.--

That's a cheerful sight - another pair of scissors has just arrived in my inbox. This pair is from Robin who says:-
106. "Hi Jane,
Here is my pair of scissors for this year's TIAS. I seem to always be distracted by 5 or more tatting projects at the same time, otherwise these would have been completed much sooner! Thanks again for another fun guessing game. I can't wait to join in next year :)
Just on the way to bed and Geraldine popped into my inbox with her pair of scissors!!! She says:-
105. "Hello Jane, At long last I'm finished. Here's another pair of scissors. What a wonderful idea for all us craft people. We would be lost with out our scissors. I have many many pairs all different for all the different crafts I do. Happy tatting Geraldine."
