Returned to Italy

As you see, Im on my computer in the middle of the night. I arrived yesterday morning, and the whole day I had low bloog pressure and was cold, because in Canada I would have been sleeping. Then I tried to sleep a little in the afternoon and went to bed very early, so now I'm awake at 3 o'clock in the night. I looked at all the TIAS pieces in progress and already finished and I'm very happy about the result.
Now, if you like, I'm prepairing a second version, which would be shorter to complete and which would have also a design challenge for you. What do you think about this?
I also will prepaire the diagrams, but before having time to do this, I have to clean the house, because my family did not clean a lot during my absence.
Now I return to bed and next day I will scan you some of my pieces done in Canada.

Wonderful! Anything you design, I want to tat.

Vinnie said...

That would be very nice!
Though I'm not finished with the previous one, I'd love to do another version.

Hey Iris, welcome back. The TIAS is very well designed. It's pretty. Thanks for sharing it. Can't wait to see what you'd tatted.

Glad you are back home.
Please do show your pieces.

Iris, I'm glad you made it home safely! We're supposed to clean our homes? Oh, dear! No one told me! : )

I am determined to learn the SCMR so that I can participate in your T.I.A.S. I just won't be able to get to it for a little while. In the meantime, I'm tatting Beatrice again. I believe this will be my fourth one!

I love your designs, and can't wait to see more!

Thank you all for your interest in my TIAS, I'm so happy you liked it.
Diane, the SMCR is nothing else then a chain, on which starting point you leave out a loop of corethread which you hold on your ringfinger, where you pass through the corethread shuttle at the end of this chain to form a ring. The SCMR gives us not only a lot of more design possibilities. it is often useful, when we have forgotten to make a ring on the opposite side!
