"But, really, why does anyone create? You feel a... a restlessness inside, a need to make something new, something no one has ever seen before. You want to add to the beauty and the richness of the world with a gift, an offering that is uniquely yours. It's an act of selfishness and generosity, all rolled into one."

TIAS Day 5

Have you read the Golden Compass series? In the third book, The Amber Spyglass, there's a world where, instead of having a central spine like we do, all the large animals have a diamond-shaped body with a limb at each of three corners and a head at the fourth. I've decided that must be what the TIAS is.

I have been doing other tatting as well, but it's going a bit slowly.


  1. I guess your place is not as green as what is depicted in the blog, uh?

    Your guess is the only one that makes sense so far. The double picot at one of the corner if for the head but then Jane has always have the upper hand.

  2. A very interesting guess. I read the series, but was a bit disappointed in it overall. It didn't make my re-read list. Did you enjoy it?
