What do you think?

I've got several things to give you but just been having a bit of a busy time in my 'other' life lately that they're not quite ready to go - the funny face and a.n.other!!!!

So, I've been thinking (yes, I can, you know!).

Do you remember - I did the first ever TIAS two years ago?  It seems such a long time ago but when I looked it up I found that it was only two years!!!

Well I was wondering if there's anybody out there in tat land who'd like to do another?  I've got a suitable pattern ready (well, almost!) so I'd like to play!!!  I'm thinking of starting it in early January when life needs cheering up for those of us who live in the Northern Hemisphere!!!!

This time I think that anybody who can do rings, chains and split rings will be able to tackle this TIAS.  I will be adding a few suggestions, tips and tricks as it goes along.  They'll be my personal tips and tricks but it would be good to have other people's input too.

What do you all think?

Oh, sweet Jane, how lovely to look forward to a TIAS in January! The thought of it helps so much to get through the chaos of this month.
Yes, I'd LOVE to join in the fun.

I love watching everyone's progress with a TIAS! I'm terrible about participating, though. I'll try to keep up this time!

I was beginning to think when you will be starting the next one. That is absolutely a wonderful idea. What creature of Tatland are you thinking of creating this time? You can tell me....I will keep it a secret.

January is the perfect time for a TIAS!

Marty said...

Oh, yes, please! What a wonderful idea. :) I always learn something new doing one of your TIAS patterns, Jane.

Jane Eborall said...

Oh, Sunela, if I tell you then I'd be telling everybody!!! NO WAY, lass, no way!!!!!!
Katie - a TIAS is a 'tat it and see'. A daft idea from brain cell number 3!!!! I release part of a pattern every few days and everybody makes it - the catch is that you don't know what you're making!!!! When it gets a short way into it people start to guess what they're making. If you go to the TIAS blog here you'll see what it's all about!!!!
