Welcome to Day 1

First person in today is Fiona and she's already guessing!!! Love your pretty shuttle, Fiona.  She says:
"Hi Jane
So excited that TIAS has started. I can only guess that the two parts will makea butterfly at this stage
Have a lovely day. 
Fiona T (Melbourne, Australia) 

Tim is next (he's always up and about really early!). He says:
"It's a snake!"

Lyn is next with her day 1 on a lovely shade of green. She says:
"Hi Jane,Thanks again for TAIS 2018. At this stage it looks like a centipede but I expect it to be something else! Lol 😂
Best wishes
Bridgetown WA"

Next to arrive is Julie with her day 1. She says:
"Hello Jane ! The last TIAS has finally begun! Here is my day 1. I am using Lizbeth thread 164, one of my favourite shade."

Now probably in bed asleep the next arrival is from Jenni who says:
Forgot where to send it!!
Thought seeing it is sadly the last, I had better use the good silverware. actually started it on the day it was put up!!!
Jenni (Liyarra)"

Beautiful shuttles, Jenni.

Jane is next in and she has this to say:
"Hi Jane, here’s my day 1. It’s just an itty bitty thing at this stage!"

Mary follows Jane into my inbox which I take in strict order. Her comment is:
"This is Lizbeth #20 thread. Color? Paper disappeared. Waiting for day 2Mjb from Jasper Indiana USA 🇺🇸"

Next to arrive is Laurence who says:
"Good morning Jane.
This is my day 1 with Lizbeth 20 col. 136
See you soon."

Just had this message from Carrollyn which I've GOT to share. She asks this question.
"HEY, I'm confussed was that 2 beads on 4 and 1/2 yards?"  The answer is 'yes'.

Patricia has arrived next and she's back to guessing the same thing as last year. Here's her comment.
"Using Lizbeth size 20, color #184.From Muskogee, OK USA--where it is a very cold, 4*F !!
If last year, you didn't succeed...
Try, try again! 
I think it is a _______"

Next to arrive is Alicja from Poland who says:

"Hallo Jane,Thank you for your work at TIAS 2018! I think it is an earthworm 😉🐛
Alicja from Gdańsk, Poland"

Barbara is also from Poland and she's sent in her day 1 too. She says:
"This is my work - Day 1
It seems to me that it could be a lizard.
Greetings from Poland"

Next to arrive is Jaycee who says:
"Hi Jane,Here's my 1st segment of the Tias 2018. Thanks so much for this fun-filled annual event again.  It is done in size 20, Lizbeth 134 Mountain Breeze.

Carol is the next person in my inbox and she's in Canada. I guessed that from her comment!!
"Hi Jane, Looking forward to this year’s adventure. Carole …On, Canada"

Another arrival is Melanie who says:
"Here's mine in Lizbeth's Coral Splash"

One of our French friends is next in. Hi, Nathalie. She says simply
"Jour 1"

Now I have another of our Polish tatters. Welcome to Ania. This is her comment and her picture too:
My name is Ania Krause. I'm from Świdnica, Poland.
Ania Krause"

Next in is my friend from last year who has returned again. Joli Mama makes me smile a lot. She's from Hungary and says:
"Kedves Jane! Nagyon örülök, hogy ismét elindult a TIAS. Szívesen csinálom, és élvezem, hogy fog kialakulni a kész munka. Köszönöm a munkádat.
Barátsággal: Jolimama
Dear Jane! I am very pleased to once again set off the TIAS. I do it gladly, and I enjoy that will emerge in the finished work. Thank you for your work.
Friendship Joli Mama"

Another new arrival has just popped into my inbox. This time it's Joni who says:
"Hello from frigid Iowa, USA! It’s just a tiny caterpillar so far, wonder what it will become? I
Joni W."

Cindy has returned for her second year with us. She says:
"Hi Jane,
I am so excited to join again this year. It was almost exactly a year ago that I picked up a shuttle for the first time, and partially due to your encouragement, I have been enjoying myself ever since! This morning it was -12 degrees Celsius, or 4 Degrees Fahrenheit, and our garden hose was frozen solid, as well as quite a few other things. And I had to go our to bring 3 of my kids to school… But now I am sitting at the fire place, which has a merry little fire in it, and starting off on another tatting adventure with you. Thank you so much for making my very cold morning so much warmer!
I am using size 20 Lizbeth, in the color way 127 - Butterfly Breeze. It sure looks like a caterpillar at this stage, but then it almost always does. I am personally thinking it might also look like the leg of a giraffe? LOL"

Polish tatters are really coming into my inbox today I'm delighted to say. This time it's Joanna who says:
"Hi Jane,thank you for TIAS 2018. I’m using Lizbeth thread 185 - my favorite color. Maybe it’s a ladybug 🐞I can’t wait till day 2.
See you soon,
Joanna from Warsaw, Poland"

Next to arrive is another of our lovely Hungarian tatters. It's Zsuzsa who says:
"Köszönöm a lehetőséget, kezdőként jó kis gyakorlás. Így sikerült az első nap
Thank you for the opportunity to start a good exercise. We managed the first day"

Zsuzsa is followed by Jutka who is also from Hungary!!! I think the Hungarian tatters are all going to enjoy the TIAS. 
"Kedves Jane!
Gömöri Ferencné, Jutka vagyok Magyarországról.
Egy éve tanulom a hajócsipke készítését.
Nagyon nagy szerelmem.
Örömmel veszek részt ebben a játékban. Az első napi feladat megoldása.
Dear Jane!
Ferenc Gömöri, I am from Hungary.
I've been studying the design of a ship's lace for a year.
I have a great love.
I'm happy to play this game. Solving the first day job.

Agi is next in my inbox and she's also from Hungary. Welcome, Agi.
"Hi Jane
This is my work.

Denise has now arrived in my inbox. Here's her comment followed by her picture.
"Here is my day one. I did not receive any email for day one. Just wanted to let you know.
A caterpillar is my guess."
Oh, Denise, I don't send out emails as I never know who's going to take part. I just ask people to visit this blog from time to time to get the links. Sorry.

After a year's break Maria is back for the 2018 TIAS. She says:
"Hi Jane! Marla from Idaho here 
I’ve been looking forward to this years adventure as I missed last years. 
Here is my day 1, and I am sure no matter what I guess it will be something entirely different. 
I am using Lisbeth ‘Herbal Garden’ size 20 for this part so I am sincerely hoping it doesn’t turn out to be something like ‘Strawberry Shortcake’ .... 
or mine will look terribly moldy!!!!"

The next offering is from Mackenzie who has cleverly worked out what the TIAS will be! She says:
"Well another 96 and we might have a cute centipede"

Just arrived from Poland is Lucyna. She's sent her picture and her comment which is:
"If two small beads are planned, they will definitely be eyes. So an animal ... maybe a cat."
Thank you to Barbara for helping Lucyna.

Celine is back for a second year and has sent in her day 1 with a comment too. She says:
"Hello Jane, so happy to be back for my second TIAS. My day One, I use color 162 of Lizbeth. Greetings from Normandy 🐄"

Maria (another Polish tatter) has just popped into my inbox and she says:
""Hallo Jane, greetings from Poland, thank you for working in TIAS 2018. It will be important :) I'm sorry my English is weak."
Your English is EXCELLENT, Maria and I'm ashamed I don't know any Polish.

The next person into my inbox is Alexander who is also from Poland and who says:
"Hello Jane! 
My name is Alexander. I'm from Poland. This is my work one day. Maybe it's a dragon flying?"

The next two pictures are from Erzsébet who days:
"I'm from Deutschland."
Thank you, Erzsébet and welcome to the TIAS.

Anne-Marie is next to arrive and she says:
"What a pleasure tatting for you this day ! Write you soon !
Anne-Marie (France)"

Another returning player is next. Hi, AnSo. I remember our conversations from last year. 
"Hi Jane !!
First of all, i wish you a happy new year.
I’m looking forward for this new TIAS (day 0). My day 1, I have no idea what it is. I am also sad that this is the last. 
Thank you for this new adventure and Julie for the French translation
Best regards,
AnSo Alia"

Back to Poland for the next person on the TIAS blog. A warm welcome to you, Izabela.
"Hello Jane

Anne from France is next with her picture and comment which are as follows:

The final arrival of the day (I'm off to bed) is from Alutka who says:

Up early as usual and at it already.

Liyarra said...

Think I agree with Fiona...a butterfly

Charlyce Davis said...

This is my first challenge. Thank you so much for creating this! His is also my first attempt at split rings. Few errors, but I'm going to try to keep going.

The shuttles are both Moonlites...the decorated one with the cardinals are one of Rita Richmond's...she's on Facebook.

Marjorie said...

I don't remember how to post photos, so this is an attempt at drag-and-drop. Hopefully it works.
Delighted I can participate this year but am very sad it won't continue. Love your designs!
The only shuttles I have with me have laceweight yarn on them, hence the fuzzy effect here.
