I'm sure that everyone knows that Mrs. Jane Eborall has announced the next Tat it and See.  I have a tendency to sit out, usually terrified of a technique shared before it starts.  Well, I'm sick of missing out!  Once again, Mrs. Eborall put up a technique to practice prior to TIAS starting and, once again, I felt sad because she only gives instructions for shuttles (I understand that completely and I don't mean that in a negative way. LOL).  

I looked at it, though, and thought, If I'm not afraid to try older shuttle techniques and figure them out for the needle, why should this be any different?  So, I grabbed a needle.  

I'm not incredibly sure that it's done right, but this is what I ended up with.  It's done in LizBeth 20, color 144.  So, here's what I did:

My brain already translates shuttle thread as needle thread and ball thread as ball thread (see how smart I can be? LOL), so I brought the ball thread UP through the picot and then simply ran the needle through.  Repeat for the other picots and you're done.  

Here's a closer look:
 Again, I'm not sure if this is right.  It appears to be right to me so I'm sharing it.  If it's wrong or Mrs. Eborall would like me to take this down for any reason, just let me know.  :-)  If it is right, I'm hoping it will encourage at least one needle tatter to tackle a shuttle trick today!  (Or tackle a shuttle!).  ;-)

Other than that, I haven't anything to show.  I don't know where my day went yesterday and, since I have nothing to show for it, I'm pretty sure it never happened. ;-)

That looks TOTALLY and UTTERLY fine to me. That's nearly the hardest bit of the whole TIAS. The hardest bit is? Heee, heeeee, - guessing the answer to 'what it is'!!! SO pleased you've decided to join us. Great stuff.
