Saturday 25th January

Today I have two ladies from Tim to show you. Here's what he says:

101. "Jane, the first one, then one I made with my new Pop-a-Bobbin shuttles, but in size 80. Did not remember the bead, so I just added it “outside”. Makes her bug-eyed. Haha.

We're there. Numbers 99 and 100. I'm also DELIGHTED to say that the number 100 is my dear friend Joanie's. Here's what she says:

99. "Dear Jane, 
Linda is a new tatter and decided to tat your TIAS 2017. I think she did a great job! She says that your directions were very good and left nothing out! : ) She used Cebelia #10, red. Linda may make a zig zag stitch going from her lady's hand, down to a tatted dog! 

100. "Mine is Lizbeth #20, in color 104, Summer Fun. We live in Sebring, Florida. 
You should have told Cindy from Dallas what to do with her leftover thread on her shuttles! Just don't throw it away!!!
Thanks for sending those in, Joanie.

Number 98 - nearly there!!!

I got muddled with the numbers yesterday but not surprised as I was feeling really 'odd' and spent the afternoon/evening in bed. Today I have Barbara's completed lady and she says:

98. "Dear Jane, 
Here’s my completed 2017 TIAS Lady. She is shown encircled by an image of the gold necklace she is wearing to her evening event. (The necklace is housed in one of the museums of the Smithsonian Institute in Washington, D.C.) She was tatted using Vineyard Harvest, #131, size 20 and a 11/0 gold seed bead. 
Thanks for hosting yet another enjoyable TIAS. Will be on the look out for our next one in 2018! 
All the best, 
California, USA"

Numbers 93, 94, 95 and 96 have arrived!!

Well I think we're going to make my 'target' of 100 this year which is very cheering as it means I'll be bringing in BC3 for a TIAS 2018.

This morning I woke to find Lyn's lady in my inbox and she says:
93.  "Hi Jane, 
Better late than never! And she's not 100%. 
I got a bit sidetracked as Ian's dad passed away suddenly and we have been busy arranging a funeral ect. 
Anyway thanks again for the TIAS 
Lyn, Busselton WA"
So sorry to hear the sad news, Lyn.  Hope things improve for you from now on.

Next in today is Phyllis who says:
94. "Sorry for the delay. Got side tracked but her she is. 
My little gal seems to be going down a ramp. She just has to be different! Thread is size 20 hand dyed by me. Look forward to next year. 
Phyllis in Georgia USA"
Oooooh, I love your HDT. You kindly gave me a skein once. It's lovely.

Gea has also sent in her final lady. She says:
"95. Finally I finished the lady today. 
It was busy last week with work outside the country and I had to do a lot of stuff..and all the time I was thinking: what would the TIAS be..the butterfly? No could not be...but only at the end I realised it was the lady with the skirt. 
Thank you so much for this years TIAS.. 
Greetings Gea"

Finally today I have Catherine's days 10 and 11.
96 "Bonjour Jane,
Et voici enfin mes jours 10 et 11 !
Merci pour ce tias que j'ai pris plaisir à faire comme l'an dernier.

Hello Jane,
And finally here are my 10 and 11 days!
