What is in the Tree?

It is a wild hornbill. 
I have only seen this bird in the zoo.
What a rare encounter.
We were visiting mom's hometown.
We also visited the house we stayed in when my sister and I were kids.
How strange that everything seems smaller than I remember.

Pattern #22 Completed

Strawberries added, but they look dehydrated, not plump and juicy.

It could end up as a choker or a bracelet.

One can decide.
 I will add a ribbon long enough to wear either as 
a choker or bracelet.

Freezer To Table

Caramel mille crepe cake.
It was not as good as a fresh one but it was fast.
From freezer to plate to satisfy my sweet tooth.
One more box in the freezer for another time.

Flowers for Pattern #22

White flowers with yellow beaded centres and 3D flower buds tatted in Venus Size 40 white thread and Lizbeth Size 40 Col. 180 Honey Drizzle. I am sure you know which pattern on the cover of Tatting Lace - Flower Accessories that I am tatting now. Lots of ends to sew in but I did the lazy thing and just knotted and glued. That is how I hide my ends, anyway . . . . .  horrors!!

All that is left to complete are little 3D berries.

Pampering Day Out

It was a lovely Mexican lunch for me and a girlfriend after an hour of pampering at the spa.

We have known each other since we came to Singapore but along the way, we got busy with our lives. Now it is time to catch up in between our still busy lives.

Pattern #22 WIP

I tatted one of the patterns shown on the cover of my new book by Emiko Kitao titled Tatting Lace - Flower Accessories.

It is not complete yet. These days, my tatting is slow. Will show you more in the next post. On its own, it would make a lovely bookmark, or an insertion.

Looking at it now, a chain to join the top and bottom row would make it look more complete. This was tatted in Lizbeth Size 40 in Seacrest Green Col. 714.

Birthday Gift

I am sure you recognize the tatting.

I attached it to this little batik fabric pouch which I bought from Melissa. 

The jade necklace I made was placed inside the pouch.

That was the gift for a friend's birthday.
I also added a little lipstick.

I hope she liked it.
