Jane's TIAS has started. This is mine up to day 3. It actually looked better but it curled a little and I tried to flatten it out which deformed the SCMR a little bit. I can live with it. I have no guesses as to what it might be. Last year she had us flying in an airplane and the year before crowing with a rooster, so this could be anything! If you haven't started the TIAS it's never to late to start. She is going to post day four tomorrow (January 19).
If you don't want to participate you might still go over and check out all the different shuttles people are using on this. A lot of participants have taken this opportunity to show off some pretty nice looking shuttles. I haven't shown mine - I chose to do this in Lizbeth Victorian Red #670 in size 20 using Clover shuttles in green and orange. The green doesn't look too bad but the orange clashes badly. Hey, they were the two shuttles that I found that didn't have any thread on them. Most of my other shuttles either have projects on them or little bits of thread that I would have to do something with before I could start. None I found had enough for this project - Jane said you will need two shuttles filled with thread.
Anyone remember this post? Trayna asked for that pattern awhile back and posted about it on her blog recently. As I have been working on updated and sharing some of my older patterns I thought this one would be the next one up. My previous post showed it with the arms joined at the picots and with beads but the pattern doesn't reflect that. I don't think it will be hard to figure out how that was done, but if you have questions please feel free to contact me. My contact information is on my profile page. The pattern is up on the sidebar.
Has anyone noticed that I missed Tatting Tea Tuesday? I've been working some different and very long hours this last week so was just too pooped to post. But it's only late by a day - not too bad. Back to normal today, so I have a bit more enthusiasm.
