TIAS 2013 & Hucklebears

Here is day 6 of Jane's TIAS.  I think I have changed my way of thinking from an Easter basket to a basket of some sort or an ark.  We will see as the mystery continues.

In the meantime, I have dyed some light lilac last week.  I finally was able to do some Hucklebears.  It is a pattern from Gina Butler.  I have been wanting to do this pattern since I saw it last year.  I will probably do a few more and keep them in my tatting bag.  They will be used as give away to kids when we go to the sporting events and there are little kids nearby.  If not, they will go to the Palmetto Tatting Guild for their booth at the South Carolina Fair in September.

TIAS 2013 - Day 3

Day 3 is complete.  I am using Yarnplayer's Size 20 Summer Trail.  My guess of an Easter basket is not correct.  Will wait some more and take another guess.

TIAS 2013

Today is the first day of Tat It and See (TIAS) 2013.  If you haven't participated before, I would urge you to try it.  The link is http://tatitandsee. blogspot.  I did my first last year and it was amazing.  She publishes pieces of the pattern every few days.  The exciting thing of the whole project is that you are welcome to give a guess as to what the tatted piece will be as we go along.    Each piece of the pattern builds on the previous until the finished piece is tatted.  Last year there were over 100 participants from all over the world.  It was great to look at all the postings of the finished piece (goats).

The TIAS is for every level of tatter.  If there is a technique that needs explaining, she explains it very easily. I actually learned about SSMR's last year for the first time.

I have mailed in my Phase I of Tatters Across Time Proficiency Course.  It has been received and is now in the evaluation phase.

Pacifier Keeper

Finished a pacifier keeper for our grand daughter.   Modified Jane Eborall's  bookmark pattern and a lock chain.  Used Yarnplayer's HDT size 20 in peaches n' onions and olde rose. Clips were purchased through Ebay. I will definately be making more of these.
