Finally (it's time for breakfast) is Claire who has this to say:-
I always release the new part of the TIAS at 8:45 GMT and then wander off to have a shower. In the past there's been a bit of a friendly race between these two to see who could get their next day in first. Sadly Isa couldn't take part in the TIAS last year and the game hasn't happened this year. So, Isa's been trying SOOOOO hard to be first with her new part this year and now she's managed it. Here is the first day 11 from Isa who says:-
"Good morning Jane:
Back from town and I've found Fiona in my inbox waiting for me!!! She says:-
Jane has now arrived with her day 11 and the following comment too:-
"Hi Jane, here's day 11, not so quick off the mark! Happy tats, Jane"
Next in is Lesley who says:-
Next in is Muskaan who has given this a lot of thought today!!!! Here's her comment and all her pictures:-
"Hello Jane & greetings to all !
Okay, the 1st pic is a 'boring old sailboat'.
But when I juggled my duplicate pieces around, there was Van Gogh on his way to paint in the blazing sunshine of southern France, donning his wide-brimmed straw hat. In the 3rd pic, he glared back at me even tho' I thought I'd used his favorite yellow !
With hands over my ears
( from Marshall Cavendish collection - The Great Artists #1 - Van Gogh )"
Next to arrive is Szylvia with such a pretty picture too.
the 11. day weather is beautiful, the sun is shining! Shall we sail on small boat.
Firanghish is next with her day 11 and this comment too:-
Here is 11th Day Assignment. I just can't guess, but it fun to tat and to learn different techniques.
Fox has just arrived with her comments and picture. Here's what she says:-
"Okay, okay I made a slight error. It is, I see after all, The Walrus and The Carpenter, from Alice In Wonderland. Obviously. Susanne was on to it in the first rounds. Love it when I hit the nail squarely on the head. Ha! Fox"
Now I have Suz again with another rhyme!!!
"Hi Jane from sunny Ontario, where it's a cool -8C. Do you have sunshine today? I hope so.
Wanda spends time trying to read BC3's brain cell!!!! She's spotted the url for day 3. It's tyme2walk today!!
"Hello, Jane. I've played with how these two pieces should lay and I still don't know what it is. I'll bet you're really enjoying yourself this time, keeping everybody guessing so far into the TIAS.
"Ok, I’m on the right day now. With still no idea. This was supposed to be a shark, but it morphed into a whale.
"I am thinking I might have to jump on the sailboat bandwagon....nothing else is coming to mind at the moment. So sorry that I keep forgetting my name on these emails...must be the lack of sleep. Ha!!!
"Hello Jane and fellow tatters,
"I think this is the first time I have posted mine on the day it came out. We are getting snow. This will be the first snow that will make it plowable. We have just scooted what little we got off with a scoop. Not sure what I am going to do with this one. If it is light and fluffy my daughter and I can scoop it but if it is heavy I may have to hire someone to come and plow me out. I still am sticking with a bobsled for my guess. Caroline H"
GREAT - another new person has joined us. This is Judy with her day 2. Welcome aboard the TIAS 2014, Judy.
A new idea from Elizabeth. What a clever one too!
"IT"s A NEW AMUSEMENT PARK RIDE. I THINK NOT. WILL JUST HAVE TO WAIT AND SEE."
Jo is the next to arrive and here's her comment and picture.
This next picture made me smile. Looks as if a war is about to start!!! Here's Marla's comment too:-
"Oh Jane....... Marty is getting very worried that he will NEVER figure this one out........
