Tat-it-and-See and Choose-your-own-pattern by Danni. There were three versions, but I did only two of them. This first one is version A. Completed, it turns out to be "A" for "Aigg" -- well, okay, egg. Too bad the "Desert Bloom" isn't very good Easter Egg color.

I was working on version A and C at the same time. I thought the pink and purple might be a better choice, but when I got version C done I just sat and looked at it in bewildered confusion. "What is this?." I asked my sister, holding it up. "I can't figure out what this little point is. I thought it might be two eggs, a big one and a little one, but not with that bump." She gave me the most disgusted look, reached out, and rotated it 90 degrees. "It's a chick, Marty...duh." Oh, yes, so it is. Darn -- I should have used the yellow!

Dani's TIAS are so cute! Hey you beat us again, Marty. I want to see what version B is... Any chance you'll tat that?

I was trying to figure what it was from the photos put up by the tatters in their blog, and couldn't get it either. Sometimes a new eye on things helps to change the perspective.

And yes, yellow would be lovely. But how would you know it was going to be a chick. ;-)

Very cute, Marty! Those are darling. I do like the TIAS's that end up with some sort of figurative tatting. Ironically, I don't really like a lot of figurative tatting...maybe that's why I like the TIAS's that utilize the figurative pattern...because I end up tatting something I wouldn't have done otherwise, LOL!
