Iris's TIAS finished....Whoo hoo!
Here it is finished...finally. TIAS stands for Tat it and See; which is a fun tatting challenge created by the very talented Jane Eborall. Several other designers have also taken a turn at hosting a TIAS ....including little ol' me.
This is Iris Niebach's pattern, (if you are a tatter, I'm sure you knew that the minute you saw the design.) Iris is a wonderful designer and I particularly like this design.
It took me 55 yards of "Rose Petals" HDT and about 40 yards of the black thread. So if you did this pattern and reversed the colors it would only take one skein of HDT.
Also, CelticDreamWeaver also did this pattern in a similar way with HDT and she said she did it with only one skein of HDT...which leads me to believe that I probably tat a little loosely.
Also, since this is a scan of "Rose Petals" it show the true colors of the thread, where as I mentioned before, the camera gets overwhelmed by the reds.
I have been working hard and doing some renovations in our home since our renters moved out. I've been getting up very early, working all day, and going to bed really late...absolutely tuckered. That is how excited I am to move back into my own home. Just doing some painting and installing bamboo flooring. It's all very fun for me...even though I could certainly use some help, so I am definitely missing hubby. I am taking pictures so you all can see the before and after. At the slow rate I am going...that may be awhile...LOL!
