Day 9

Here it is - the link for DAY 9.

First in today with her day 9 is Umintsuru.  I gave her the link a day early as she wasn't going to be around for a few days.  Here's her comment and picture.
"Dear Jane,
No guesses on what I used for background.
You've got a VERY patient cat, Umintsuru!!!

Next in with days 7 and 8 is Stephanie who has this to say:-
"Hi Jane!
ok, I think I didn't scan Day 7, so this is 'officially' Days 7 and 8.
Figured before it turned into something else, I'd better get my rocket-shaped Whatzis sent in.  ;-)
Have a terrific week!
Big hug to everybody doing the TIAS!

Next is from Jenni who has caught up with the TIAS!!!!  She says:-
"hi Jane....catching up lol....days 4-8
Having fun!
Hugs, Jen"

Finally before day 9 goes 'live' I have Bernice O's day 8.  She says:-
"TIAS day 8 and still no idea of where we are going with this!  Bernice O"

Whoops, nearly forgot Lyn's day 8 which was at the top of my inbox.  Sorry, Lyn!!!
"Hi Jane,
Here is my day 8 just in time for day 9 ! Beautiful weather here at the moment but our north Queenslanders are about to be hit by a cyclone and king tides.thanks for your time and effort that goes into these TIAS 's.
West Aust"

Another one hidden in my inbox - the attachment didn't show!!!!  This is from Barbara who says:-
"Hi Jane,
I'm totally flummoxed, but it's really pretty.  Thank you again for a fun tat.

First in with the 'live' day 9's is Val from Singapore.  This is her message and picture:-
"Dear Jane,
It's Lunar New Year's eve here, and I'm rushing off to reunion dinner with the in-laws. Before this, got to get day 9 to you!
Catch you later.

WOW, that was fast, Lyn.  Back again but now with her day 9 is Lyn who says:-
"Hi Jane,
Day 9 went "live" while I was still on line, so I did it straight away !
No idea what it is !
West Aust"

Another early day 9 is from Fiona who says:-
"Hi Jane
Here is day 9. It has been a whole year since I have made a SCMR. This year I get it done easily first time! Wondering if this will become a square shape... Hmmm. Glad to be halfway...hope to figure it out soon.
Until next time
Fiona T (one mad tatter)"

Finally in this batch is Sue of the duckhouse!!!  She says:-
"Morning Jane.  Here's my contribution to the blog! I do love scmrs! Managed to do this straight after school this morning!  It's still online for the duck house entrance!! Lol
Chat later

Another batch of day 9's starting with Kristen who says:-
"Hello Jane!
Today was not my best tatting day, but I think I got it right?? With all those shuttle switches, I'm all turned around! Any chance you could tell us whether Day 10 should start with the original shuttle 1 or shuttle 2? :-D
I really can't wait to see what this turns out to be, because I'm back to no ideas.
It's pretty, though.

Isa has arrived next along with her family!!!!  She says:-
"Good Morning Jane :
Here is TIAS day 9, from a city plenty of snow and very windy morning.
Send you and all participants of your TIAS a big hug."

Now I have Maureen's gnome which is also her day 9:-
"We are still tatting a Garden Gnome - and he is getting taller now.I think we may have just given him a hand."

Next to arrive is Sonja who has this to say:-
"Hello Jane
Here is my day 9. Still no ideas. It’s very difficult this time, but I like that.
Greetings from a cold but dry Holland
Sonja from Holland"

Now I have Mooskaan's day 9 along with her comment:-
"Greetings all !
Here's my day 9 , Jane.
Pandora's boxes have opened but confusion still reigns as to the contents et al...
I Loved doing the SCMRs - have had quite some practice since I've just finished tatting 2 of your Fandango Coasters with interchanged colours !
I've also posted about my TIAS experience so far. Here's the link."

Next in this afternoon is Tove's day 9.  She says:-
"Dear Jane!
Here is my day 9.
I still want it to be something i 3D.
A picture of my balcony as it look today.
Regards from a very snowy south of Sweden
Tove Karlsson"

Susan is back again with another rhyme.  Such stamina!!!
"Hi Jane,
Hope today you have some sun. Our temperatures are warming for a few days and we expect a high today of -5C-- balmy!

TIAS day 9 is done 
And I'm still having lots of fun!
The mystery is still intact
As I've no clue, and that's a fact!
I must return to play day 10.
Perhaps I'll have an idea then.
Thanks Jane.

Hugs from Suz"

Now I have Lesley's day 9 along with her comment too:-
"Good afternoon Jane
Good? Well at least it’s not raining at the moment. Having spent the morning serving in our allotment shop in the freezing cold I’m devoting the rest of the day to keeping warm and doing tatty things. So here is my Day 9. I can see why it was a short one today since I for one need more practice closing SCMRs!
Still considering something that moves; so with the winter Olympics on the horizon, why not a bobsleigh?

Miranda is next into my inbox with her day 9 and the following comment which is:-
"Hi Jane,
Day 9, and I'm none the wiser. I've rotated both pieces every which way, but I still have no idea what it could be. You're probably having a good laugh over the whole thing, aren't you?
Yes, Miranda, a slight giggle from time to time!!!

Next into my inbox is Jane who says:-
"Hi Jane, day 9, a bit later than I intended, but our internet has been off all day. Hmmm, I have no idea what it is. Happy tats, Jane"

All I can say is - Fox knows me too darn well!!!  It certainly won't be anything religious, Fox but there again it could be defined as having 'religious connections' from what I remember of having to read the bible as a kid!!  I'll say no more!!!

"I just don't get it. I know you are not the religious type, so I am perplexed. Why would you design a pattern depicting the Pope's benediction? That's all I see. Maybe it's me converting - NOT about to happen! Or, maybe I'm right!"

I just HAD to laugh at Wanda's comment.  I really have to think hard on what to name the files that I upload just so that nobody can predict what the next day is - not that I don't trust you guys but I do like to keep secrets as many of you know.  Anyway Wanda's comment made me LOL (laugh out loud) when I went and looked it up.  Thanks for the giggle, Wanda.
"Hello, Jane.  On day 9, after turning it several directions, the closest thing it looks like is a broken tea cup. As I'm pretty sure that's not it no guesses today. I do love the pdf file name today - my thoughts exactly!
Wanda in Kansas
aka tattrldy

Next in is Caroline who says the following:-
"It sounds like we are going to finally get some snow.  I don't like it but we do need the moisture.  I just hope it doesn't get started and does not know how to stop.  Jane, is it going to be a chair lift or a carnival ride of some sort?  Kind of looks like a basket and the first part will be the tower.
Caroline H"

Melanie has just arrived in my inbox with the following picture and comment:-
"Hi there!
We had a bit of rain yesterday! 0.01" to be exact! I'm NOT happy. We need more!!!! Can you send some our way? PLEASE?
To distract me, I completed Day 9 section of the, mmmmmm, Mother leaning over her baby in a pram. Well, that's what I saw. Must be all the smoggy air I see outside my window. Sigh.
Off to see if there are clouds on the horizon.

Next to arrive is from anonymous!!!  Well, not really.  Just that this person has forgotten to put their name to the message and it would take me ages to back track to find out who it is!!!
"Here is day 9... I still think it might be an alligator.  Off to get the baby who just woke up and she is not particularly supportive of my tatting! Ha!"

Jo has just sent in her day 9 and a very colourful picture too.  She says:-
"Hi Jane
Here is my day 9. Still a mystery to me.
Jo from the UK"

Next in is Kelli with her offering.  She says:-
"Hi Jane,
Attached is my TIAS Day 9 photo. The SCMR gave me pause, but I persevered.   I even tried your loop trick to close. It does look nicer.
And I'm playing with a new editing app, so I labeled the picture.  Fun.

A simple comment and probably the last for today.  This comes from Anne:-
"Curious! :)"

No, that wasn't the last of the day as Fran has just arrived with her day 9.  She says:-
Here is my day 9. I still think it is going to be a fashion bootee. So lovely to find day 9 waiting for me when I came home from work.
Fran UK"

This IS the last of the day - I'm off to bed.  It's from Jennie who says:-
"Thank you for making me learn the SCMR!  What a useful skill!  Took a few tries, but I think I got it :)
On a side note,  I realized this morning while out for my morning run that you know you're a tatter when you see a beautiful sunrise and think, "these colors would make the most lovely tatting thread!"
Have a great day.
