Serenity



The colours remind me of lotus flowers
but it is actually a Calathea
So calming and serene.

Pandora Bracelet of the Week 21



This should teach me a lesson in patience. I recently got the Poetic Blooms Moments bracelet, Poetic Blooms clips, Cherry Blossom pendant and Wild Hearts murano before the winter sale which is now on at Pandora.




But I did get the above bracelet as a gift with purchase. You win some and you lose some. The 2019 Valentine's Day collection is out. What are you getting from there?

I know Christmas decorations have been replaced by the Chinese New Year decorations but I just wanted to show you this black and gold themed decorations at Westgate shopping mall. I was there to visit the newly opened Spotlight store just after Christmas last year.

Charlotte Doily 1 WIP



I started a new doily from Lee Hye-oon's Lovely Tatting Doilies for Spring and Summer. I used Lady Shuttle Maker's HDT Hosta Leaf in Size 20. I wound whatever's left of the skein onto 2 shuttles so I may not have enough to finish the pattern. We will have to decide where to stop tatting or change threads.

Christmas Cards



I cannot remember if I showed you the card I received from Margaret in 2017 (left) and the one on the right which I received for 2018. Both are handmade by Margaret. I just love these cards.



With this card, came gifts from her travels to Croatia, Belgium and Turkey. Thank you so much, Margaret. It is so very thoughtful of you.

Sashka Bangles





Have you seen these beaded bangles from Sashka Co.? I ordered them in early December and the post took its time delivering it. It took nearly a month to reach me. Usually it takes 7-10 days. It must have been the holiday season with many packages to deliver. 


I am very pleased with these bangles. So happy that I just ordered more. The bangles are crocheted with glass beads by women artisans in Nepal. It is a fair trade enterprise to empower women to rise above poverty. There are two sizes: the usual size fits 6-7 inch wrists or get the larger 8 inch one. Just roll them onto your wrist. 

You can use this link for a limited time discount or just visit their website to see what discounts are available.

Faith (MK #72 )



If at first you don't succeed,





try


and try again.

Can you spot the mistakes?

A pattern from page 90 of Mary Konior's book 
titled Tatting with Visual Patterns. 
A very elegant pattern tatted in one round, 
all rings, using one shuttle.
Just need to watch where you join to.
But the third try was a success, after some unpicking.
