Day 8 will be on Wednesday.
Oh, the fun has started in earnest today with a grudge match (purely in fun) between tatters from totally different parts of the world. BUT you'll have to scroll down to learn more as I take all messages in order of the first to last into my inbox. Here we go.
First is day 4 from Monica who says:-
"I have here a (crappy) picture of my day four TIAS piece. I did not get a day 3 one, as I was on a car when I finished it. This will be the TIAS piece tatted with best scenery! I now think it will be a submarine. I seem to be fixed with the sea!"
Monica is still working on the TIAS against all the odds and I've had this later message from her too:-
"I also did day 5, and then most of us agreed it will be an air plane, except my man who put it "sideways" and said it looked like a penguin. I am sorry I can't send you a pic yet now. I see you have gone on to day 6, I'll try to copy it and work a bit at it on the car tomorrow."
Don't worry, Monica, there's no time limit on this.
Next is Marion with days 5 and 6 and she says:-
"For some reason I didn't get day 5, but I did remember to take pics this time. I'm leaning toward a penguin now as well. Guess I'll just have to wait and see what tomorrow's segment will be! We also got another foot of snow!"
Next in is from Ridgewoman who says:-
"I’m not happy with it; but, here it is. Picots are a little big for this size bead. Since you worked the cat tail first, I’m thinking we began this at the back end first ~ what-ever-it-is....LOL"
Next is from Mary who says this:-
"I have finished later, but I finished."
Now I have a comment from Tine who says:-
"Now the Tias looks like the backsite of an aeroplane. Greets Tine The Netherlands"
Now this is SO funny. I knew that Maureen (Australia) and Isa (Sweden) were trying to be first with both their stages of the TIAS but I didn't realise that Omar (Australia) was in on the race too!!!! So today's first in with her offering is
WAIT for it
Here's her admission of what she was doing!!!
"Hi Jane. I thought I would see what it takes to get in before Isa and Maureen. I’m patiently hitting f5 to refresh the page with shuttle and ball in hand. Lol. Well I’ve tatted, scanned, cropped, and inserted.....Hasn’t helped ...I haven’t the foggiest....I’m with Maureen It’s a Rabbit!!!!"
Following Omar is, of course, Isa!!!! Don't be cross, Isa, you've been first nearly every day!!!!
This is what she says:-
"From a wonderful winter day here in south of Sweden I send you my TIAS day 7. Have a happy Sunday and now I'm going to the Church. I'm insist it's a crocodile :)"
Next in (after shower and breakfast) is from Valerie who seems to still be puzzled!!! She says:-
"Here's Day 7. WHAT is IT? :)"
"Jane I'm crying and crying hahahha but you know I couldn't have my computer on line early as every morning, the server was down and when it comes, TIAS day 7 was alredy in your page. But next Wednesday I'll be the first one :)"
There you go Omar and Maureen the gauntlet has been thrown down!!!!
Following Isa's remark comes Nima who is still trying to work it out!! Here's what she says:-
"Here is my day 7 progress...Can't wait for next day...from catapillar to seahorse to turtle ...and my todays guess is a giant lizard...lol...this is the exciting part of TIAS...guessing according to the progress."
Next in is Maureen who says:-
"Hmmm. I will have to bring in the Big Guns soon, I can see a definite Absence of Rabbit evolving - it would help if I knew which way was UP!"
Now popping into my inbox is Elizabeth who says:-
"OK Jane. Here is TIAS 7. Looks like an anteater to me but I am sure it is not. Guess we will see."
Next in is from Heather M who has this to say:-
"Hi Jane, it was nice to see my sister's tatting up on your page too... it was also nice to wake up to see you had day 7 up, it is snowing here again. I am back to having no guess at all, but still having LOTS of fun... thanks heather"
Next in is Sharren who has great 'flights of fancy' when guessing what this is!!! Here's what she says:-
"Well - I thought I might be on to something when I guessed opera-loving-aria-singing animal, but with this new part, that guess sort of goes out the window! Hmm...with the new bit coming at a right angle, it sort of looks like a bent knee - so the animal (?) could be running or moving with arms outstretched. Maybe it's auditioning for The Sound of Music - hoping for Julie Andrews' role??"
Here is Heather J who is a little behind - not that it matters one bit. Here are her days 3, 4 and 5. She says:-
"here is day 3, 4, and 5. I was going to guess airplane like someone else did and now that I look at it it seems to me like a lizard, alligator or crocodile. I have day 6 printed and ready I feel pretty good today I may get around to it unless the beads call my name again."
Every time I get up to leave the computer somebody else 'drops in'. Whooppeeeee. I LOVE it.
This time it's Rose Anne who seems to think she really does know what this is. She says:-
"OK I was up till 2:00 am so checked before shutting down but guess that was too early for you Jane! LOL! Then up and attem at 7:30 am to tat my airplane - yeppers I think that is what this TIAS is gonna grow up to be!!! Sheesh now I better go crash for an hour or my tatting afternoon with the Lace girls will be for naught!!!"
Next in is from Terry who has this to say:-
My apologies to Isabel - I missed her picture of day 6 yesterday. I am so sorry. So here today is day 6 and day 7. Isabel says:-
Last in this evening is from Wendy who says this:-
"Well, now, I think it is some sort of lizard !!"
