Start of the TIAS

This blog may be quiet on and off if I’ve got nothing to say.  When the TIAS is operating my time is taken up with not only updating the TIAS blog but also with helping a few people.  I will be here and I do have a new heart to launch during the next week or so.

Tomorrow's the DAY

This is a card that Janet made from a previous TIAS.  It's the medium sized mermaid which can be found on the TIAS blog in 2018.

Moaning Monday - it IS about tatting!

Tatting can be so useful as well as decorative.  Yesterday, here in the middle of England, it was a windy day - just right for getting the washing dry.  I filled the line up then went out for a while and when I came back glanced out at the back garden to discover that the washing was partly tangled up in the shrubbery.  The line had broken right at the shed.  

So out came some pliers (or something like that) and the offending ‘end bit’ that had broken was cut off.  I still had the chain part so joined the line to that.  Two tatted double stitches and (after a bit more cussing) I managed to get the line back up!!!  The story in pictures below!!
