Happy Halloween 2018

It is not a holiday that is celebrated here but some do dress up in costumes for this occasion. These pumpkins were on sale at our local supermarket. Hope you have some good fun this Halloween.

Pandora Bracelet of the Week 14

You have seen this bangle before. It is the Pandora Moments Silver Padlock Flourishing Hearts Bangle. It is a limited edition Mother's Day 2018 piece. If you love it, try and get it soon before it is sold out. It comes in a special lovely box too.

I used the Autumn 2018 collection Grains of Energy Safety Chain as a design element. From left Explosion of love charm, Flourishing hearts charm, Pink enamel flower charm (retired), Paw silver charm and Lock your promise clip.

This is Scheme A Country Kitchen. I started Rounds 1-3 with Lizbeth Size 40 Col. 682 Country Grape Dark. Rounds 4-6 are tatted in Lizbeth Size 40 Col. 160 Country Kitchen. The next round will also be a colour change. Come back soon to see which colour.

Pandora Bracelet of the Week 13

More items from the Pandora Autumn 2018 collection. 

When I went to the Pandora store, I had no intention of getting any Pandora shine items but I just loved that limited edition Pandora Shine Circle of seeds ring so much. I could not bring myself to get the matching items like the pendant, bracelet and earrings though I may regret it one day. 

Instead I picked up the Pandora Shine Floating grains charm dangle and two Pandora Shine Seeds of elegance clips. They are on the Moments two tone clasp bracelet with Celebration of love spacers, Pandora Shine Honeycomb lace charm and the Locked hearts openwork charm.

Flower Bed

I went a bit closer to have a look to see what those pretty flowers were.

No flowers, just lovely leaves in a mix of greens and reds. This is the landscaping outside Paragon Orchard.

Lavender Doily 2 Complete (LHO 10)

This is done. The last round seems a little short and looks pulled. It reminds me of a dinner plate because of the colour change. Picotsnkeys asked if I was going to do another colour change - but I did not. Kathy, the centre is not difficult as long as you have a picot gauge.

Tatted in Lizbeth Size 40 in Col. 641 Lilac dark and Col. 646 Purple iris light. The pattern is from page 71 of Lee Hye-oon's book Lovely Tatting Doilies for Spring and Summer.

Now I can concentrate on tatting Renulek's WIOSNA 2018.

Pandora Rings Spring 2018 Collection

I recently got these rings using the Pandora Get more for less promotion. They launched earlier this year but I did not get them then. 

On the index finger is Heart Swirls sterling silver and cubic zirconia. 
On the ring finger is the Glorious Blooms sterling silver with aqua blue, royal purple and vivid green crystals. 

I could not find the other seasonal ring called Multi-colour arc of love ring in store. If I do find it, I might get it during the next Pandora promotion.

Thank you for your vote contribution to help me pick colours for this WIOSNA 2018 pattern by Renulek.

Please see my blog post for picking the colour scheme. I have also added all the Lizbeth colour codes for the schemes as suggested by Michelle. Thank you Michelle.

Below is what I have tatted so far in Lizbeth Size 40 thread in Col. 682 Country Grape Dark for Rounds 1-3.

Pandora Bracelet of the Week 12

I recently purchased many items from the Pandora Autumn 2018 collection. In the photo above, the rings and muranos are from that collection. 

I love the Pandora Rose Enchanted crown ring with the black crystals so I got the two rings a few days after the launch. I had to visit two different stores as each store only had one piece in each size.

On the Moments Pandora Rose bangle are the pink mix archs of love clip, iridescent white glass murano followed by the Pandora crown O in the centre.

The other small black crystals bracelet is not Pandora but I thought it made a nice combination with the rings
