Thank you to your suggestions for keeping the chains uniform. I was stubborn and refused to measure the chains. This is the result. After tatting, I need to push the stitches back. This is when the chains get uneven. It will have to do.
So far I have used Lizbeth Size 20 in Col. 620 Azalea Medium, 702 Coral Orange Medium and 184 Rainbow Splash. It sure is very colourful.
This was the qualifying rounds on Saturday night - Vettel, Verstappen and Ricciardo.
We did not watch the finals but congrats to Hamilton, Ricciardo and Bottas.
This year, we had a great view of the pit and watched Ariana Grande and Chainsmokers in air con comfort on a screen with free flow of food and drinks. We are not F1 fans but attend previous F1s for the concerts. This year, it was a different experience. It was an enjoyable night, thanks to J.
It is a young coconut fruit with its coconut water made into a jelly with coconut fruit pieces. After scrapping the rest of the fruit, the shell makes a lovely pot for plants. I will show you when its done.
I took this photo from the train as we passed Khatib towards Yio Chu Kang station. It has been a while since I took this train to the city. When you are not in a hurry to get somewhere and the train is not too crowded, it is quite a relaxing ride.
This is a pattern from Tatting with Anne Orr. I recently got this book from the Book Depository.
It is missing some rings along the chains but I decided to carry on without them because I realized the mistake too late. Tatted in LIzbeth Size 40 Green Ice Col 187. The colours do not show up true in this photo.
It is finally done. It did not take too long and I really enjoyed tatting this. Tatted in Lizbeth Size 40 in Col. 633 Purple Dark, Col. 641 Lilac Dark, Col. 162 Purple Iris Fusion and Col. 646 Purple Iris Light (from centre out).
Margaret tatted the onion ring snowflake here and I really liked how she used a darker thread for the inner ring. I decided to try it myself. Tatted in Lizbeth Size 40 River Blue Medium Col. 708 and Ocean Turquoise Dark Col. 657 (top); Sea Island Citrus Col. 161 and Ocean Turquoise Dark Col. 657 (bottom). The pattern can be found on Georgia Seitz's online tatting class website here.
I used the same variegated thread Lizbeth Size 40 Purple Iris Fusion Col. 162 for Round 10. Now measuring about 14 inches across. One more round in this variegated thread before I switch colours again.
These jade earrings were set by a jeweller friend. I bought these jade pieces thinking I could wire them myself using the 14K gold filled findings but decided to get them done by the professional instead. I am glad I did. These are set in 22K gold and tiny green garnets. The carved jade pieces measure about 1.5 inches and drop about 2 inches with the ear hooks. These earrings can be worn on either sides depending on your mood or outfit.
