Another lovely surprise arrived today from Adrian who says:-
111. Hi Jane
At long last, I've been able to get the last two parts of TIAS done. (Work has been intruding too much on life just lately, but I've got a break now, so I can spend some time catching up on everything I've been putting off.)
Thank you so much for running this again. As usual it was great fun both guessing what it was and seeing other people's guesses. Plus I got lots of practice with my Catherine Wheel Joins! :)

March 24th

Today I have another pram from Sonja's pram so I thought you'd all like to see it.  She said:-
"Hello Jane
I was busy with painting some thread, because I wanted rainbowcolours. I needed a test for my thread and I made my third pram. You see: I like colours.
Sonja from Holland."

Next in today are two prams from Gea who says:-
110.  "Hello Jane,
Hereby finally my tias of 2013. Sorry it took so long. I had a lot of work but the worst thing I ever did was to choose black for the last parts of the cradle. The light in our house as terrible in the times I could do some tatting. Today bright day, just zero degrees outside, but the wind so strong it feels like minus 15 so i had enough reason ti stay inside and finish it. Thanks a lot for your work this year. 
Greetings Gea"

Another pram has arrived today. Thank you, Terese. This is what she says:-
108.  "Hi Jane,

Tuesday 5th March

After a few days of quiet I can now show you Mary Jo's final days of the TIAS 2013. I must admit when she sent in day 1 and said what she did I nearly threw in the towel. Here's a link to Day 1 where you'll find her remark.

107. "Here it is! Finally found time to wind contrasting thread and work the two final clues. I can't believe I guessed it after the first clue. Mary Jo in Mission Viejo, California."

Another Friday has come round

Yes another Friday and another pram. Today I have Winnie's finished pram. 
106. "Hi Jane,
I finally finished my TIAS! 
Bye, Winnie."
