Pandan cake with palm sugar, coconut sprinklings, a sliced canned peach and a pansy flower. I was fascinated with the pick because it looked like glass but it was actually a plastic pick. I collected the pick after having the cake. It did look prettier than it tasted.
Mango pudding with diced mango. Sorry for the poor quality photos. It was indoors in a restaurant with dim lighting and I did not want to use the camera flash. People might think I was silly to take photos of everything I put in my mouth. No, I was just silly enough to take photos of these desserts.

- the right thread;
- the perfect colour;
- the most appropriate pattern;
- everything you hoped and wished it could be;
You actually smiled throughout even when you put it down for a few days and picked it up later and you kept on smiling and tatting and smiling. It just felt good.
This is Mary Konior's pattern called Drunkard's Path. The thread is Krystle's HDT 'Vineyard at Dusk' Size 20. I added Delica beads at the joins. The tatting is part of a necklace. I hope to post the necklace soon.

Side B - After

Tatted in Lizbeth Size 20 in Summer Fun (#104). This thread is from the Thread Exchange with Miranda. Two mistakes were made here but it still looks okay with the pretty colours; if you do not look too closely.

Aren't these gorgeous?

The 5th Day of December pattern from Lene Bjorn's book '24 Snowflakes in Tatting' (page 13). This one is done in Lizbeth 20 in #152 (Christmas Green Mix) and #670 (Victorian Red). This shade of red was not what I had expected but I do like the Christmas Green Mix.
This is the 6th Day of December pattern (page 14). I tatted this in Milford #40 white. Seldom do I use white but I guess snowflakes should be white . . . or not!

. . . . . . This is home truly, where I know I must be,
Where my dreams wait for me, where the river always flow,
This is home surely, as my senses tell me,
This is where I won't be alone, for this is where I know it's home . . . . .
Every year a song is composed for this occasion. This one called 'HOME' was first heard in 1998 sung by Kit Chan and composed by Dick Lee. Catch the video here.

Pattern is called Elise on page 10 of the book. Tatted in Altin Basak thread Size 50 Col. 2328 (red with gold metallic strand). Butterfly measures approx. 2.5 inches across.
This is called Linda found on page 20. Tatted in Coats Floretta Size 20 Col. 4428. It measures about 5.5 inches across. I joined the bottom chain at the wrong location. I cut and tatted that chain again so that it looks more like a butterfly.
I love the green of this thread. It is included in the thread exchange if you are interested.
This one is called Mia on page 31 done in Lizbeth 20 Col. 620 (Medium Azalea). I think it will have a totally different look in white and with crystals incorporated.
