Another new TIAS!

Well, here we are at the end of August and another new TIAS has arrived. 

This one is from Claire with her days 9. 10 and 11 and I'm wondering if I'll meet her in a few weeks when I'm in Canada at the Fringe Element.

106. "Hello Jane, 
After a few delays, I finally finished my Crinoline Lady. Here is the corresponding blog post:
I used Lizbeth thread size 20, in colorway "Autumn Apple Pie" to make this 2017 TIAS. 
Thank you very much Jane for sharing your wonderfully creative patterns in such a fun way. 
Cheers from Canada. "

July 2nd 2017

A day to remember for myself and BC3 as a new arrival dropped into my inbox yesterday. This is from Christine who had a few hiccups with her TIAS 2017 but managed to overcome them and has produced a truly lovely lady with an owl. Here's what she has to say.

105. "Attached is a photo of my finished TIAS 2017 -- my lady The Duchess, as I like to think of her because of her hair-do, and her Owl companion. 

I apologize for taking so long to send this to you!

Finishing the Duchess was delayed somewhat as she needed surgery... She complained of her eye being cloudy and having difficulty seeing (the first eye was a pearl bead). So I took out some stitches and gave her a pretty blue eye. Then it took awhile for her companion to arrive. :)

Threads used: Lizbeth #20-690 (mocha brown lt.) and Star Tatting Crochet thread, probably size 80 (grey).

Thanks for another fun challenge! I hope you and BC3 will challenge us again next year.

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.
