Sue aka Pigmini!! Vbg"
And back a little later - another from Isabel!!
"Jane sorry again me here :)
I have tatted with an other kind of thread and here it's the first day again :).
I am so happy to take part of my second TIAS!!!!!
I have chosen Lizbeth Twilrz, and it's my first work around a button!
Thank you for sharing!
And Happy TIAS everyone ^_^
Here is a link to my blog : les Frivolités de Pandore, dentelle aux navettes.: TIAS 2015, jour 1"
Katie V is back - yippeeeee. Must explain that Katie never ever makes one of the TIAS - she makes many at the same time!!!! Just look at her shuttles too.
my grandson guessed that it is a snow man!
So glad the game has begun!!!
Thank you, thank you!!
Katie V in NC"
Next to pop in is my friend Jane who says:-
"Hi Jane, I hope this is the address you’re using for TIAS. I tried to check the link on the introduction, but my computer got a bit carried away, I thought it was going to send you the contents of my computer or something.
Herewith day 1. I’m not sure it’s a good idea to photograph it so closely, but there you go. I’m glad we’ve used the button straight away or I’d have been bound to have mislaid it by the time it was needed! The thread is Cebelia, a lovely pale peach colour that I bought in John Lewis in London.
Happy tats, Jane"
Next in is Fox who is telling me I'm naughty!!!! Well, Fox, have you only just realised that?!?!? Here's her comment which will make you laugh too"-
"For shame, Jane. Already risqué. A chastity belt might not be the most appropriate subject for many decent tatter folk. I am not certain I shall be able to continue..."
Anne has just popped in with her first day too:-
"Let the fun begin :) Anne"
Next to arrive is Wanda who says:-
Tally Tatty has just arrived in my inbox with this comment and picture:-
It is so good to start the year again with a TIAS. I had sort of forgotten it, this morning, I have too much on my head! When I remembered, I pushed all my files aside , and googled a cm /inch converting table. Thus,the button should be 0.95250cm, if my calculations are correct.
Well, that is an average button, .. I could have guessed that as well. Look at my old Aero shuttle: the hook is long enough to go all the way through the button. Comes in handy!
Best wishes, Tally"
Next to pop into my inbox is Hélène who offers this comment. Happy New Year to you, too.
"First, let me wish you a very Happy and Peaceful 2015 and again thank you for this TIAS. I really enjoy tatting with people all around the world.
Secondly, the hardest part of your TIAS, is choosing the thread, as we do not know what it is we are tatting! So I chose the button first, and found this lonely one. Don't know where it came from and it was not going anywhere because it was the only one of it's kind. I went through my thread stash and found this Lizbeth (Seascape). Now the button and the thread go together, but are they appropriate to what we are tatting, ????, just don't know.
So, day 1 is tatted, cannot wait til day 2.
Hélène from Québec, Canada."
The next person to arrive is Firanghish who says:-
Just LOVE this comment from Shirley. Made me chuckle.
"My first TIAS. I think it is Frodo Baggins (Lord of the Rings)
Gandalf: They are one; the ring and the Dark Lord. Frodo, he must never find it.
Frodo: [gets up to hide the ring]. All right. We will put it away. We'll keep it hidden, we'll never speak of it again. No one knows it's here, do they?
[Gandalf doesn't answer.]
Frodo: Do they, Gandalf?"
