Mawar Hijau is going home to Lana. Tsuru made the choice. Thank you to all who visited and left me comments. It is really uplifting to hear from all of you. Do come back soon.
Lana, please send me your details.
This necklace is a custom order. Photos show the necklace worn short and long. And if you are careful enough you could also wear it as a bracelet. Two Delica bead roses with Swarovski crystals (faceted round) and crystal pearls (cream; 3, 4 & 5mm), rhinestone beads and antique silver metal-base findings, chain and flower clasp.

The Pink Artist Project initiated by Monica Magness is collecting 2 inch art squares from all who wish to contribute. The squares will be used to make a doll's dress which will then be auctioned off at EBay. All proceeds will go to the Susan G Komen for the Cure charity for breast cancer. If you wish to contribute please make sure your square arrives by March 1st 2008.
I just finished my square and will post it off on Monday.
Going home for reunion dinner tommorrow. My mother usually cooks for this dinner but this year my sister and I decided to cook a dish or two. It is traditional to cook lots of food so that you can fill your refrigerator with leftovers. This will ensure that you will always have sufficient to eat for the rest of the year. An old tradition.
So this is my dish for tommorrow. Pork with white radish and scallop. We have it with steamed rice so all the other dishes would go with rice.
I tried out two tatting patterns last weekend. This is what it looks like. The easter eggs is a pattern I found online by Emma Crew. The yellow and green egg is tatted with Cebelia thread size 30 and the mauve and purple egg is tatted with Flora thread size 20. The button flower pattern is by Lisa Trumble and it is done with Flora size 20. I'm going to make more of these in different colours.
This button fairy is from Cindy in US. Pretty buttons with a striking butterfly wing. It is my third and last button fairy in this particular exchange. My next exchange is a Easter dotee doll swap which is due in early March. I'll start on that after the Chinese New Year. I also sent off some dolls. I will post photos maybe next week.
