Apparently, one of the tatters has always longed for a rabbit from Jane’s TIAS. The more I work on this, the more I see a rabbit! I hope she gets her wish!
My tension has improved since starting this project. I’ve learned at least three new techniques, too!

I’m not sure about starfish anymore because this last “row” of rings and chains don’t look like the previous ones. It could be the side of a rabbit. If it is a rabbit I can’t wait to tat a little fuzzy tail!

P.S. I’m thinking of making my own TIAS later this year…hmm…Jane offered it out there that someone else could do one, and it got me thinking, I even thought of a subject! But, of course, I’d have to write my own pattern…should be fun!! More on that later!

I finished this on Friday, when it came out. Boy it really looks like a rabbit doesn’t it? I think the best guesses so far are: starfish, rabbit, dragonfly.
What do you think?

It's hard to get used to it being so dark outside at 5:00pm.

Another fun day! I still think it’s a starfish, maybe a regular fish. I’m very happy with the colors I chose. :-) There are a lot of guesses that it’s a rabbit, which I could see, too.
More soon!!

hmmm….still thinking a starfish but other guesses of “rabbit” might be right too! A thinks it’s a dolphin. ;-)

I’m just having so much fun with tatting. x-D

I think a weekly WIP update would be fun. :-) I hope I can keep it up throughout the year, then I’ll have a nice narrative to reflect on later. Plus, you know, progress pictures are awesome!
Here’s my first addition, the Dreaming of Tuscany project. I’ve been taking it to my son’s exercise class twice a week, and I get to work on it uninterrupted for 45 minutes (at least!) each time. I’m getting a lot done! I only have the vineyard, both sides of the wall, and then finally, backstitching. That’s my favorite part, honestly. It brings the whole piece to life! These pics are from the last two weeks, one night at a time, from my most recent pic backwards in time to the first one of the year.

Here is Bruce’s Tatted Doily, I’m almost done with the second Round. The third and fourth should go much faster.
(I hope!)

I’m trying to update my Ravelry page more often too for my knit and crochet stuff.
