This is my first TIAS since I only started tatting in September 2012."
will be different. Here is my day 1 and I think we must be due for that.....
Wigwam for a Gooses Bridle!!
Very best wishes for the New Year from Omar in Australia on a 40 degree day."
Oh, Maureen if it isn't a rabbit will I lose a friend?
Next into the inbox (I always work from the bottom - first in, first served) is Prabhjyot who has this to say. Please go and visit her blog too.
"Thanks a lot again for another fun-filled session of tatting when people around the world are working on one pattern & guessing what they will end up making?
"Here is day 1 of my first tias ever (still quite new to tatting)! Unfortunately, I didn't have any variegated thread, this is dmc babylo color 369, size 20.
Best wishes from the Netherlands,
Whoooops, just found Deana in my spam folder!!! This is what she says now I've rescued her!!!
"Just a late comer coming in from London Ontario Canada. This is my 3rd TIAS that I have started (never finished) maybe if I send a daily update it will push me on to the finish. I got home late last night...loaded the old shuttles (nothing special) with Lizbeth size 20 Pink Cocca (needed something something to remind me spring is coming. Not sure why my day one is curved and everyone else's is straight."
Now I have Adrian's day 1 which is kindly being modeled by - well, let him tell you!!!!
"Here's my day one in variegated thread, on a variegated cat. (She almost never sits on laps, so I didn't have the heart to move her out of the way. Plus she's a very warm fluffy hot water bottle! :)
"Here us my version of Day 1. I am going to stick to my first guess of " eyeless creature". This section was definitely easy!
Thanks - Sunela"
Next in is Karen from 'down south' here in the UK!!!! She says:-
"Well I made it better late than never. Here is my Day 1 done in Lizbeth Wildflower Garden No: 154 and it looks as if our Jane has gone on the straight and narrow LOL - sorry Hun couldn't resist. No sensible guess as yet but can't wait for Day 2.Well I made it better late than never."
Karen, there's no such thing as 'late' in a TIAS but it's so good to see you here.
Now I have Margaret who is also from here in the UK!!!! She says this:-
"Hello Jane, This year, with nothing else to take up my time, I am in at the start. Here is my Day 1. Two of them actually, 'cos I'll never get round to a second one later! Happy TIAS everyone. Margaret in Norfolk."
Next in is JB who I had the pleasure of meeting at Palmetto Tat Days in September. She says:-
"This is a great way to start the New Year. This is the first thing I have tatted since finishing tatted Christmas presents. I am excited to be participating. I am using Jess’ Key Lime Raspberry Parfait that I purchased at Tat Days. Thanks so much."
Now I have Maria's and she seems to think she may be last but I sincerely hope not. A reminder - there's no time limit and it's not a race either!!! Here's what Maria says:-
"Am I last the last one? I am a bit poky lately.... so much to do and I just want to tat :) I took a bit of a break from work and finally got day 1 finished, and here it is..... I have no guesses as at this point it could be anything and my brain is too tired to think on it. I am looking forward to further revelations though!"
