I had to play catch up. Challenge accomplished. I have done 9,10, and 11.
The scissors will be so cute. There I go, my guess is chosen. lol
Will be back in a day or two.
Denise has also decided we're making scissors. Here's her comment and picture:-
"Here is day 11. It's scissors.
"Ta-da! My boys think these are cute scissors too! :)
"I'm just pleased as I can be with this pattern. Looking forward to day 12. Thanks for such a fun January/ February game. I was going to call it winter, but my azaleas are blooming in full force so it's spring for me here. :)
We are having a bit of snow tonight and it makes for great evenings of hot chocolate and tatting.

Finally (I think and at the moment!) is Grace who has sent in her days 10 and 11. She says:-
Grace c here, now it's definitely looked like scissors. Here are my day 10 & day 11."
Back after a long afternoon helping neighbours!!
First in is Marie who says:-

I have a message now from my dear friend Riet who has been diligently translating the whole TIAS into Dutch for the guild she belongs to. This is an interesting message as it appears other people doing other crafts are also guessing. She says:-
1 of the dutch members had the answer. Her name is Remke Veerling and she thought, that it was a hare. A friend of hers, who is a member of another craft site, said it is a pair of siccors
The dutch word is : SCHAAR."
Anne-Marie and her entire family are next and she says:-
You'll be soon taking advantage of holidays!...I wish you these 'll be good. But, it'ld be a very good new to do another TIAS in the middle year! It would give me occasion, more than tatting i am regularly doing, to improve my english..... Unless I have understood a wrong way.
I could'nt send you my day 11 yesterday : there was strike for grandchildren's teachers and they slept at home yesterday in the evening and staying to-day ... I have to occupy them if I want them wise.....Thomas,who is 10, wanted to learn tatting for 2 years, and at once successfully ! Léa, his sister, 7 years old, worries about my giraffes transformed in scissors.....But she wants I give her one pair....what I'll do gladly.....Your TIAS keeps watching the whole family......
Thanks for fun and see you soon...
Next to arrive is Katie with her little 'ensemble' of TIAS's and a sweet little rhyme too!!! She says:-
More ideas would jump off the lip.
The end now is near;
It brings forth a tear.
And the scissors brigade starts to snip.
