Also at this craft shop I found some patterns for the nyonya kasut manek (beaded shoes). I bought 3 patterns and mom asked when I was going to start on that. Hmmmm . . . , I don't know, when I finish my tatting, stained glass, patchwork and quilting? So far I have made 2 pairs of kasut manek - a red one here and a blue one here. The 3rd one on the frame is ruined by mildew. Now where did I put those new patterns . . . . ?

One more large cross
I did not pack my shuttle and thread to Penang but on the second day there, I found a craft shop and they had threads and shuttles. I bought myself a pink Clover shuttle and a ball of thread. Perle cotton size 8 by Cosmo (from Japan) in the colour below. As I just finished a number of large crosses (pattern by Mary Konior), I could remember the pattern and started this cross in Penang and finished it in Singapore. The thread was very weak and it broke a number of times when I was closing the rings, but I like the colour.
