Tatting patterns with the added 'fun' factor.
This blog is for the patterns which I'm going to list in 'parts' on my web site. These I'm calling the 'Tat It And See' (TIAS) as the finished result will not be seen until the pattern has been completed!!!

Day 3 continues
Tomorrow will be day 4 so keep watching for the links!!
First in today is Sarah who says:-
"Hi Jane, Sorry I'm a bit late with day 3 but here it is with another rhyme. I never know if I can keep this rhyming thing going!
Could # 3 brain cell
Have created a carousel?
I do not know and you won't tell!
Next in is Sue who says:-
"My centipede is getting longer. Or is it taller? I can see this becoming the Eiffel Tower soon. I love reading all the other ideas from everyone around the world as well.
Patricia has now joined in with her days 1 - 3.
I'm behind already, I had to skip Day 2! Lizbeth # 643--Medium Grape. I am in such a fog as to what we are making...that I looked through the mists and saw a ______!!!! From Muskogee OK USA.
Now I've got Denise who has joined us too. Here's her comment:-
Thank you once again for hosting a wonderful Tatting adventure. I look forward to the TIAS at the start of each year. I didn’t look for the start soon enough and almost missed it! I just started today but managed to pick my thread, button, wind my shuttles and tat all three days. Whew! I’m caught up.
My husband guesses it is a drag racer. Here is a photo in case you don’t know what a drag racer is
I have a question about Day 1. What is the point of the lock chain there? I didn’t really like my lock chain and would have preferred a regular chain. Some of my stitches seemed to get a little wonky on the lock chain.
And here is my pretty little tatted piece complete with button! I can’t wait to start attaching buttons to my tatting. I had so much fun with that. I never thought to use a button instead of a bead. I love it."
The reason for the lock chain will hopefully become obvious in time, Denise!!!!
Julie has got her mum involved too with the guessing!!!
"Hello Jane !
Here is my day 3. My mother, who is very interested in this game, thinks it could be a flower ^^"
Finally as I have to go out I have Marie's day 3 with her comment:-
"Hello Jane! This is my Day 3! I love this tatting adventure, I spring to my computer every morning to check the news on your blog ;-)
Have a nice day
Marie - Rue de la Laine
Next to enter my inbox is Nikki who has just joined in with this year's TIAS. She says:-
"Here are my 1-3 days... Lol was so excited about the new Tias I forgot all about it lol ..
Using Lizbeth in Rainbow and found a pretty little yellow button."
Joanie (my wonderful host in Florida last September) has now joined us with the following comment and picture of her days 1 through to 3.
"Well, I couldn't stand it any longer!!! Forget about all the other things I'm supposed to be doing, on with the TIAS!!! I found 2 shuttles. Then I located the small bag of buttons that Martha graciously gifted me with at Tat Days and chose my button, which determined thread color! I wound my shuttles and have tatted Days 1, 2 and 3! So I am awaiting Day 4, as everyone else is!!!
I also have trouble with the teeny tiny rings! And the thread colors in Rings 7 and 8 make the rings look wonky!!!"
Miranda is the next to arrive in my inbox. She says:-
My aged computer has been increasingly recalcitrant of late, but this morning I was finally able to get online long enough to print out Day 3. I still see no reason why it couldn't be a bat, although I think the wing is just about long enough now, don't you? I suppose it could also be a hand plow.
Now I'm going to see if I can stay online long enough to post to my blog-- wish me luck!
Another new arrival with her day one is Starlene who says:-
"I am behind because we just moved and I can't find anything!!! Had to buy some buttons for this!!!"
Back a few minutes later is Starlene who says:-
"Finally got caught up!!"
Well done - you're fast!!!
Next to arrive on this cold, cold evening is Tally Tatty who says:-
Why can I never win? I started again with darker thread, corrected a mistake and tried to minimize gaposis.
Result: my double stitches are on the wrong side of the button symmetry. Nom d’un chien!
It looks like a comet right now!
Robin has joined us again this year and has just sent in her days 1, 2 and 3. Here's her comment and picture.
I've had a bit of a late start. Here is my progress on this years TIAS. It will be my second time around (first was the sailboat). I have no idea what this could be, maybe something reptilian? The green thread didn't go as well with the button I found, so I'm using Lizbeth's Niagara Falls. Can't wait to see how this progresses!
