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!!!

Caroline is next to send in her final mermaid and she says:
74. Well, at first I had a hard time deciding what thread to use for her hair then the computer decided to give me problems. Finally called them and they said the system was having problems. Wish they could have told me that somehow to prevent all of the frustration on my end.

I used Lizbeth Rainbow Taffy for my gal Lizbeth Bright Blue Lt for her hair with Metalilic Embroidery Thread Color No. Stac 7 for the high lights.
Thank you for taking part, Caroline.
Rainbow Taffy is my favourite Lizbeth variegated so it's no wonder I LOVE your mermaid.
Melanie is next in my inbox and she says:
75. "Hi Jane-
I finished the little swimmer. It was a fun game once again. I will enjoy putting this beauty in my display for demo box.
I used Lizbeth Carribean for most oc the thread. The hair is miscellaneous thread I found in a grab bag from an embroidery workshop.

Thanks, Melanie - love your colours - specially the hair.
The final overnighter in my inbox is Bernice who says:
76. "I first tatted a few rings to make a bra but it just didn’t look right, then I found the perfect sized star bead but I only had the one. Searched my stash and found these rose beads; brought back from the Philippines. I tatted with a size 20 Lizbeth Grape Pomegranate, and the fluke with Lizbeth Turquoise Lt. The hair is a mix of the turquoise and some lilac and lt green DMC Cebelia.
Such a pleasure to see all the mermaids/men filling up the TIAS blog.

I did giggle when I saw your bra on your mermaid. Splendid idea. Thanks for taking part.
Sorry for the delay in getting more mermaids uploaded but this has been 'one of those days'!!!
So, next in my inbox is Magdalena who says:
77. "Dzień piętnasty i ostatni.Niteczka Kaja 15.

Now I have Beata with her days 14 and her finished mermaid. She says:
78. "Droga Jane.Zabawa się skończyła i jest syrenka. Nie jest tak piękna jak inne ale jest. Nici Lizbeth 20 i Limol 20. Pozdrawiam serdecznie i do zobaczenia w 2019 roku. Beata z Polski
