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!!!

Monday and more 7's
Tomorrow will be day 8. You have been 'warned'!!!!
First in today is from Bernice who has a good guess at a teacup!
I have attached Day 7 and this looks like a teacup but then I’m standing on my head.

Denise is next in the inbox with this comment and picture:
"Well with only 3 more rings I really can't say what this will be at all. My husband and one of my sisters are seeing cactus. I don't see the cactus. Another sister can't stop seeing my bandit that I sent in for day 6. I'm looking forward to day 8.
Actually that picture makes this year's TIAS look like the pram we did a few years ago!!!
Rose Anne has summed up some of the guesses in her comment:
"OK I've caught up on Day 7 of the tatting mystery. Again I'm still at a loss what this will be! Some guesses are hot air balloon, turtle, fancy crinoline dress, teapot to name a few from my friends.

Stephanie Grace has put a LOT of thought into her comment - I'm flattered that you've taken the time and written it all down, Stephanie Grace. Food for thought.
"There I sat, in my silent living room, shuttles dangling as I let out such a scream that even my turtle's facial features contorted into a look of concern. "Eureka!" I screamed, "I was right! This is most certainly the hair from The Bride of Frankenstein!" To confirm my suspicions, I quickly grabbed a piece of paper and began to sketch out the details when one jarring detail rang out in my head: "One bead will be needed..."
The fear and shock of being so wrong hit me all at once. "Nooooo," I cried out as dropped the monstrosity in my hands. "A cycloptic bride with a white-grey streak in her electrified hair? The horror! The shame! The pain!!!" Tears blurred my vision. My stomach churned with sympathy for the poor bride. I ran to the lavatory (not to be confused with the laboratory) and, as I passed the mirror above the sink, two things stopped me in my tracks: The first was the predominant white streak that had suddenly appeared in my own lovely tresses; the second was a dangling entity emerging from my pocket. It seemed to mock me as I released it from its cloth prison. Putting it down on the nearest surface, I quickly took a picture, but I was feeling so faint that I couldn't make sense of its rings and chains... As I passed out, though, I swear it was singing a song: "I'm a one-eyed, one-horned, flying blue-green people eater."
Linda is the last one in my inbox at the moment and she says:
"I had to stitch 3 rings today. Glad I wasn't very busy so I could get it dome.
I still have no clue. I have much other tatting to do. Check back later.
Enjoy your day.
Next in is Diane with her day 7 and it looks as if this TIAS may have broken her fear of split rings too!!!
"I looked for Day 7 first thing this morning. I must be getting better with split rings. I managed to finish before my first cup of coffee! This is by far the fanciest letter D I have ever seen!"
Coretta has managed to do her day 7 in the midst of a very busy day. Here's her comment:
"Very small section today.
Today is Laundry day. So this was a very short diversion. :) "
Next to drop in is Martha who said:
"Here's my next installment. No good guesses, yet. I'd have to say the skirt, with a bit of a train, for an Elizabethan lady. But it actually looks like that and usually what it really is isn't clear until much later."
Last one in today is from Sue who says: "Dear Jane I was guessing teacup but then turned another way it's a teapot! I really love the turtle illustrations by Patricia Lyn Cobb! So many creative guesses! Sue - Washington state"
