First in with days 1, 2 and 3 this morning and before I go and have breakfast is from Val who says:-
" Ok, the TIAS... have worked up to Day 3, by didn't get to take pics of earlier progressions. No idea what it might be just yet. :-)
Next with days 1 and 2 is Nikki who's comment is below:-
"Days 1 and 2.... size 20 Lizbeth in...ummmm.... hmmm.... what is this colors name????? Spring something..... to early for me to guess but I know it will be something wonderful!"
Well, consider it an accomplishment on your part! I have gotten so "reinvolved" with beading that I have picked up a shuttle very little during the past year (I'm not sure at all, since your last TIAS) It's not that I lost interest in tatting, as I was still the homework site administrator for the online tatting classes (until just last week, when I turned it over to Melanie) , and admiring everyone's work weekly... . It was just that I had gotten so busy!
Then along came the email about the TIAS...and all of a sudden, I just HAD to pick up my shuttles again.
But...why'd you make it so easy to tell what it was this time? It's obviously just the newest variety of flower, a "tatsy"! They even have blue stems... These flowers have been known to change shape over night....wonder what they will look like tomorrow????
Next in is from Bay who's even got her rabbit involved in modelling her day 2 of the TIAS!!!!! What a sweet wabbit, Bay.
"Did someone say something about bunnies? Maybe it's a bunny tail connecting to a big bunny foot :)
Next in is from Sonja in Holland who must be feeling cold this morning! She says:-
This morning we had to clean the windows of our car. Ice on it. Nice weather, sun, no wind, nice to walk.
Still no idea what it will be, but I love it.
Sonja from Holland"
Now back to the U.K. for Fran's day 3. I'm being kept very busy this morning which is great. Here's her comment and her picture:-
"Good morning Jane
Here is Day 3! Still no idea what it could be.
Isa is in next with two versions of her day 3 and her group of watchers is getting larger!!! She says:-
"Hi Jane, here is TIAS day 3. My group of little people increase because they want to know what is the finally result of the first TIAS of this year 2014 :)
Have a wonderfull Sunday, my best wishes from the south of Sweden with a beautiful sunshine in this very moment, winter but without snow."
Just back from a cold, miserable and slightly 'damp' walk round the rec to find a few more TIAS's in my inbox!!
First one of this session is from Jo here in the UK. She says:-
Here is my TIAS day 3. The guy in the corner looked away from his computer games long enough to say that day 2 was a frog but now he's seen day 3 he says it's not a frog but maybe a cat. The TIAS has got me back into tatting mood so some more tatting has snuck into the picture.

Now I have Sandra's day 3. She's kindly waited until today for me to put it up as she was one of those who got the link when my computer was playing up. It's still a bit flaky but much better than it was. Here's Sandra's comment:-
"This my day three from Friday, so excited to finally post for real lol happy tatting."
Now I have Ginny's day 3 with her suggestion. Mind those teeth, Ginny!!!!
"Here is my day three and i think it is a shark!!!
Next in with Day 3 is Lisa who says:-
"Greetings from south central Indiana, where it's either snowing or raining this time of year. Flood warnings for my area. Here is my Day 3 picture....I'm thinking maybe a flower watering can? That's just a guess, I'm sure that's not really it. I can hardly wait for you to ship the shuttles. I got one of those beautiful cocobolo rosewood. I'm looking forward to getting my hands on it! "
It's packed and ready to go in the morning, Lisa!!!!
Now I have Gea who has just joined us. She says:-
Thanks a lot for this years Tias. Already having a lot of fun. I was a bit behind but this lazy Sunday helped a lot. Still I am clueless.
Back from Taiwan with day 3 is Hsing who has now got a problem - she's addicted!! Here's her comment and picture:-
I am becoming addicted! Can't wait for Day 4.
"Mmm, could be the back of an old car. Gone off the lolly idea.
"I’m caught up now – all three days are done and I’m waiting breathlessly for Day 4! No guesses just yet – I’ll wait until there’s more to see."
"Hi Jane, here's day 3, done and dusted.
I'm going to be MIA for the TIAS for the next week or so, but I'll catch up when I get back.
Happy tats, Jane"
"Hmmm....Since I'm drawing a blank as to the possible evolution of this design (what further elements join to all those remaining vsps? Is it a sternwheeler? a wheelbarrow? a sleeping mouse?), I'm going to give you Bill's standard (and always enthusiastic) response as to the possible purpose/identification of any tatting motif: "Undies!""
So, folks, are we making undies for Bill? Answers to Suzanne on a postage stamp, please!!!
Last person in today (it's my bedtime) is Angela who says:-
Here is my Day 3 pic. Unfortunately, I had to abandon the one I had started in Elderberry Jam because the thread kept twisting and breaking, but I started another in Girly Girl instead. That one is going much more smoothly!
I LOVE Girly Girl, Angela but I think you sent the wrong picture. I'm putting this on the TIAS blog because it's such a sweet cat and he/she is doing what I'm just going to do - try and get some sleep!!!
