Six done, six to go. Still a long while before this gets done. I am getting a little restless and wanting to start on a new project. I am worried about having enough threads. To solve that I have to add more colours.
We booked a table thinking it was a buffet lunch but realised when we got there it was a totally new restaurant. It was a large place but we were the only other table there for Sunday lunch at 12 noon. Perhaps it will get busy later in the day or for dinner, supper or late night drinks. There are still places in Singapore that are not crowded.
Well, food was good and we had excellent service from a fine young waiter from Spain.
I was wrong. The next round was not joining to the centrepiece yet. Since the last post, I have added 2 rounds. I still have 11 more motifs to add to. It is time consuming but it does look quite pretty.
This is finally done. Tatted in Lizbeth Size 40, this measures about 19 inches across. Thank you Fox for pointing me to this challenge. I had fun matching the thread colours. The last round was a little tedious because I kept making silly mistakes.
They are flowering and some trees have more flowers than leaves. A popular tree along this expressway. It would be nice to see mass planting of this tree in a park. Imagine all the trees flowering at the same time. Experience the golden shower of yellow petals.
The last round of this spring doily was revealed but after two false starts it is not done yet. In the first, I tatted 6 repeats before realizing that there should be 6 rings. So I started again but the chains in the first and second motif were different. Yes, all silly mistakes. Where did my mind go?
These motifs are not joined yet. The next round will do that but I had to block it first before I could continue as the chains were just out of control. A little too fiddly for my liking but I am anxious to see the end result.
I tried to duplicate what I ate but it just was not the same without the right herbs. However it was not too bad and it tasted quite good, not as sweet. Wood ear fungi was added for the crunch. I was tempted to add raw bean sprouts too but decided against it later.
