Past TIAS games

One of the things I enjoy most is meeting up with old friends from previous games and I’m always pleased when they turn up again each year.  It’s also good to meet new people too.

One of the past participants is Patricia who always came up with some great suggestions and comments.

Red earrings

After the white teeny tiny snowflake earrings I decided to make myself a pair.  I do like dangly earrings so this time I added another snowflake beneath the first one.  As you can see I also added a large bead between the two parts.  

This took BC3 a few minutes to work out!!!  On the fifth ring of the upper flake I had to add a bead to the ring and hold it in place with a safety pin/paperclip and also remember when I finished that ring not to close it until I'd joined to the bead on ring 2.  Not rocket science but enough to stop BC3 from his afternoon nap!!!

The new clear PVA glue was used on these and I'm really pleased with them.

TIAS announcement

Yes it's that time of the year again! Well it will be shortly. Time to announce another TIAS (Tat It And See).

All details are on the introduction which can be found here. Also in the document are links to the TIAS blog etc. Hope you can join the fun.

If anybody wants this in another format to translate into their own language then please contact me. I hope to see my Hungarian and Polish friends back and will happily help any others with getting the TIAS to as many people as possible.

Below are some of the past TIAS patterns.  I wonder what it will be in January 2022?
