Did gyre and gimble in the wabe:
All mimsy were the borogroves,
And the mome raths outgrabe."
So this is my guess, that is until day 5, when the wind will just blow the thread another way, and then I won't know what it is.
Thanks Jane for keeping us on the game.
"Please let it be
A ship to sail across the sea.
Perhaps it's the pennant atop the mast
Which lets us know whose yacht has passed.
Sarah : )"
Breakfast and shopping done and I'm back in the 'driving seat' again!!!
This time it's the turn of Anne who sent in this picture.
Now Lyn from Australia is next to pop in. Hope you're not too hot down there, Lyn. She sends in days 3 and 4 with the following comment:-
Here are my days 1, 2, 3 & 4 photos. I'm not very happy as the tip on one of my shuttles broke off ! It was passed on to me by an elderly lady and had done a lot of work never mind, at least the shuttle shill works.
Thanks Lyn from west aust."
Now I LOVE this little drawing - so cute. It's from Cheryl who says:-
"Day 4. Well...maybe a birdie wing. Confused smile. Cheryl"
Quite the opposite sort of guess now from Lori!!!! She says:-
"Woo hoo !! I have been able to keep up! Yeah!
Maybe it will be a rat? Hehe what we just finished could be his noise? Hahaha
I am kidding, I still have no clue!
Now I have Claire's day four with what appears to be a shark attack happening. Oh, no, sorry - they're clippers!!! Here's her comment:-
Here is my day 4 and the link to the related post on my blog.
I agree with others who said it will be a sail boat. Too bad that it's not related to horses. ;)
Have a great day.
Next in is from Bernice B who says:-
"Too tired to deal with the ends. It appears to be a nice elf cap and was lonely being set aside so I have let it sit with some other WIPs until needed.
From the hottest place on the earth at the moment comes Fiona's day 4. She says:-
As another 40 degree C day ends in Melbourne, the thunder and rain is setting in- still very hot and will be humid tomorrow and 44 again! Ick. Here is my day 4 work... I think I should have used red and white thread as it reminds me of a santa hat. Not thinking this is an elephant any more, unless he's wearing a jaunty hat. Lol.
Fiona (one mad tatter)"
Another very amusing picture and comment comes in now from Nicole!!!
You have given me a hard time with Day 4. Or better put it this way: I've given myself a hard time! I accidentally joined ring 15 to ring 2 instead of ring 3. Of course I only found out much later, after struggling again with the CWJ. And then there was a cut and tie! I'll do almost anything to avoid them, as they never turn out the way I want them to. Always afraid they might come loose as well.
However, I am glad to know we're working on a gnome! :-)
And I really enjoy the poems, the rabbit picture, the Swedish gathering of all the dolls etc. Keep up the good work!
The pictures this morning are amazing and the next one has just made us both smile. It's from Chantal who says:-
"A gecko with ambition, in a vision once I saw.
It was an Abyssinian lizard
And all it wished for, was a wizard.
What can I do
the doctor asked the little lass
‘All I want’, replied the critter, is to swim in cool Loch Ness!
TallyTatty (free after Coleridge)"
What an imagination!!!! I'm sure this is EXACTLY what the Loch Ness monster looks like!!!!
Finally before lunch I have Lesley's day 4 along with her lovely new shuttles - which I recognise!!! I've seen those somewhere before, Lesley!!!!!
Here is my Day 4 with my two brand-new shuttles ready for their maiden voyage into Day 5. Talking of voyages, could we now have the sail of a yacht? We might have to consult Ben Ainsley on that! ;)Regards
Back after my daily walk and I've found Helen's day 4 in my inbox!! She says:-
here is Day 4. Could it be the long skirt of a lady seen en profile?
Is it by the way good to have another colour for the next part?
Thanks for the fun.
No, Helen, stay with the same colour for the next part and then change to something else for the final part. Well, that's what I think. A skirt of many colours!!!!
Next to pop in is Anne-Marie who says:-
This "Day 4" was a little more difficult than previous for me. After lock join with R1, why does my chain not become round? It stands upright,as a "I" ! I had to do again! For guess, i am more and more ignorant, my first days' idea of dancer's evening-dress doesn't seem present to-day.
Afternoon already being advanced, and weather so dull, I wish you a good evening.
You will have to wait and see Anne-Marie - the chains are that way because ........!
Denise is back again with her day 4 and she's not got a lot to say, really!!
"Here ya go.
"Well, I did not put my garbage out today as with winds 60 + miles an hour I figured it would get to you before they picked it up. Will hope next week the weather is better and not a lot of wind. With the temperature of 28 the wind chill will be awful. Feel sorry for the kids walking to and from school. As I have worked with the pattern I have seen a nice pair of earrings in Day 2 and Day 4. Maybe that is what we are making. A pair of earrings. My picture isn't quite as nice this time. Sorry! Caroline Omaha Nebraska USA"
I do hope it starts to get less windy for you - brrrrrrrrrr.
"Day 4 done I'm not totally pleased with my tatting but this is a learning experience."
It looks as if it's going to be fine, Sandra. I can't see how you can expect a perfect piece when you don't even know what you're making. One of the next parts of this !$@D£^ will pull it all into shape.
I don't have a name for the next great drawing which is a shame. Still, no matter as I have a comment with it too:-
"Here is my day 4. I think perhaps a lovely swan is in order?
"I have day 3 and 4, I got behind a little but all caught up today. I liked everybody's guesses very creative pictures too. I have no guess of my own its very exciting getting to tat it up. Happy tatting!"
Final offering in today as I'm off to bed in a minute. This is from Stephanie who has a brilliant idea on how 'not to lose' this part of the TIAS!!! Here's her advice:-
