TIAS 2013, Ruffled Heart & Dalek Update

2013 TIAS Intrepid Day 2
It warms my heart to see so many tatters enjoying Jane Eborall's 2013 Tat It And See. The guesses are starting to take shape just like the tatting. It is not too late to join in the fun!

My Day 2 entries are pictured above.  Whatsit #1 in Lizbeth® 20 #168 Latte Foam is on the left, directly underneath the diagram.  Whatsit #2 in Lizbeth® 20 # 125 Sea Scape is the second one on the right. Jane gave us the choice of climbing out to round 2 (the Intrepid path) or cutting and tying to avoid a split chain/split ring combo (the Cautious path).  I chose the Intrepid path. 

This silly cartoon camel was intended to represent my Day 2 guess, but my computer refused to cooperate. I thought perhaps we might be tatting his hump?  Seeing the poor, dreamy-eyed duffer up a tree makes me laugh!

Last but not least is a snapshot of my sick Sprout's progress on his Dalek ornament. He was pushing brads through the felt (a fine motor skill exercise) to help stave off boredom while home with strep throat and an ear infection.

Poor Sprout!  His first-ever case of strep throat quickly turned ugly.  Thirty-six hours after diagnosis he developed a scarletina rash over the lower half of his body.  Scarletina rash is also known by another name:  Scarlet Fever.  Antibiotics are doing their work, but it has been a draining few days.

I will begin embroidering details once the brads are all set.
