TIAS means "Tat It And See". Iris Niebach has this tatting design on her blog and she is a very creative tatting artist. I started after seeing what other tatters had done and finally got mine finished the other day. It took me quite a while to do this, especially since I didn't know how to make a SCMR which stands for Self Closing Mock Ring. With the help of tatting bloggers, I was able to figure this out and now my tatting skills aren't so rusty.
I plan on getting a nice frame for this and putting it up in my quilt studio. I love the way it turned out, even though it took me several weeks to complete.
