Another new arrival today. I think we may beat the record by the end of the year!!! This is from Brady who says:-

113.  "hi Jane!
I'm sure this is the last pair of TIAS2015 scissors you'll be sent. It might be the first needle tatted pair though? 
Anyway, sorry so late. I loved all the pairs I kept seeing, but just this month got up the gumption to see if I could make it work with a needle. If anyone's interested, the only change I made was zigzag tatting instead of lock chains. (It's possible to do LC with the needle but it's not fun) 
Anyway, thanks for the great pattern! Needle crafters all love scissors.

What a lovely surprise. Just arrived is another pair of scissors and this time from Lawrence who says:-
111. "Hi Jane,
Attached please find my completed TIAS 2015 project. This is my first mystery project, and in fact one of my first projects ever! The split rings were challenging: learning to tat "wrong" on purpose, so soon after much hard work learning to tat "right".
Looking forward to more challenges,"

March 5th

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
