Today I'm pleased to welcome Claire's mermaid along with this comment from her:
113. "Hello Jane and fellow tatters,
I am sad to see the end of this TIAS, and I tried to make it last as long as possible but here is my finished mermaid.
I forgot to take a picture of my day 14, so here is only one picture of the finished TIAS, and the corresponding blog post: https://oclairedelune.wordpress.com/2018/04/01/tias-2018-jours-days-14-15-la-fin-the-end/
My mermaid was made using Lizbeth thread in size 20, in the colorway « Autumn Apple Pie » (#169).
A big thank you to Jane for creating another great pattern, and sharing it as a fun game every year. It was great to see tatters from all over the world participating to the game, and creating so many beautiful little mermaids.
Happy International Tatting Day to all."
Well here's another lovely surprise. This mermaid has come from Sandra who has this to say:
114. "Dear Jane, after many things hitting the fan here, I have finally been able to spend some time tatting and finish on April Fool’s Day (in the US, at least) – go figure! I’m so happy to have your precious mermaid, even though I thought for sure it might be a centipede, a pin the tail on the donkey game, or an ant eater, or a fox sawing logs –whew!! I do believe she is on her way to a party."
