P.S. Any squeals of joy you hear coming from this side of the pond are mine - have been excitedly waiting for this day! Love TIAS !!!"
All the way from Australia comes Liz's offering. She says:-
"Attached please find the photo of day one."
"Hi Jane!It is so exciting to be a part of your TIAS. I paticipated in the last one, but did not share anything. This time I have decided to go 'public' and show you my results. Attached is my Day 1 result. I am using Lizbeth thread in the color 'carousel' with metalic purple beads. If this is an animal, it is going to be a strange one lol. Thank you so much for this wonderful opportunity!"
Right, off to have breakfast!!!!
No, not yet - just found Fiona's in my spam folder!!!
Now between breakfast and going out I've found Vanessa G's in my inbox!!! Here is her remark:-
"Thanks for doing yet another TIAS :)
Attached is my Day 1 photo.
Absolutely no idea what it is!"
Lunchtime and in between the library and going out again!!! Here is day 1 from Isa - she says this:-"Este año, creo que va a ser un animal.... y eso de Bola grande y otra mas chica, me da que pensar, que va ser un mono bizco o tuerto, jejejejeje....
Good to see another friend popping in this year. Hello, Marjan. Here is what Marjan has to say:-
"A picture from Holland. Started with Lisbeth 20 (red-pink-white-lightgreen) and Cebelia 20 )green). I love it."
Next in (and I'm thrilled she's found the time) is Martha Ess. She says:-
"OK, I'm in. I had a nice browse just now on the TIAS site looking at the variety of shuttles shown attached. I had already scanned mine with just the tatting. Off screen are just two boring gray Aeros."
Now here is another entry - this time from Sarah and in rhyme which is a new idea. This is her comment:-
Another new tatter is joining us this evening. Well it's evening for me!!! Her name is Mariya and she's from Russia. Mariya says:-"Photo of my day 1 result is attached. I'm a newborn in tatting (I've started to tat only last autumn), but I do like it very much! And I'm really glad to see throw your blog and many others how many people from all over the world tat nowadays. When I started it seemed to me that in my country, Russia, tatting is not very popular. Thank Heavens, in world it is! And yes, I have no idea, what this pattern will be :)"
Next person into my inbox is Claudia M who has this to say:-"hi jane.. well.. i always follow your previous Tias but this is the real first time I decide to go into this fun challenge! Im from Argentina, more precisely in the province Formosa, one of the warmest in this northest region..
