This round is tatted in Lizbeth Size 40 Col. 637 Country Grape Medium. In this photo it looks like the same colour as the centre but it is in fact slightly lighter than the centre which was tatted in Col. 682 Country Grape Dark. I think the next round should be back to the variegated thread Col.160 Country Kitchen.

Pandora Autumn 2018 Charms

These three Pandora charms are not sold here. They were released as part of the Autumn 2018 collection. A friend visited Europe and she kindly got these for me. Love all 3 pieces. I think they look good together.

From left: Regal heart charm, Lock and heart charm and Regal beauty charm.

Chicken Stew

Cabbage, potatoes, carrot, french beans and bell peppers went into this stew with some frozen mid joint chicken wings. We ate this with steamed rice. Also had it with stir fried spinach in garlic and oyster sauce and my favourite bitter gourd omelette. That took care of dinner. What did you have for dinner last night?

Pandora Bracelets of the Week 17

This week I am pairing the Pandora Rose Modern Lovepods bracelet with the Pandora Essence. Charms on the Essence are the Pandora Rose Love makes a family charm on either sides of the Affection charm with the 14K gold heart.

Pandora Modern Lovepods items are not sold here but this bracelet was a promotional gift with purchase. I love it. I would love to add the Pandora Rose Modern Lovepods ring and spacers to my collection too.

Goldfish Glass Bead Silver Ring

Remember this painted glass bead which I posted here?
I recently got this fish hook ring which you can add and change the beads? Yes, I will be adding my Pandora charms on this ring too.

I continued this round with the same colour thread - Lizbeth Size 40 Col. 661 Country Turquoise Medium. This particular round felt like the tatting was never ending. But it did. All it took was lots of patience and perseverance.

Cherry Blossom Motif 3 (LHO 12)

The distraction tatting is done. I did not have any more of the cream thread so I used the pink which is a different size and brand. I think it works although it still makes me uneasy.

Pandora Bracelet of the Week 16

This bracelet is the oxidized silver bracelet with silver clasp. 
From left is the winter wonderland clip (14K), luminous hearts charm (14K), fluttering butterflies charm,  luminous florals pendant, moss charm (14K), luminous florals charm and another winter wonderland clip (14K).

I wanted to combine the mother of pearl charms and the oxidized charms and bracelet. I love the combination. I stacked it with the freshwater pearl and black spinel stretchy bracelet.

Vietnamese Rolls

Sometimes I get a craving for these rolls. Found these at a coffee shop in Teck Whye. Also had the grilled pork in a baguette. It was a satisfying lunch last Saturday.

The roadside plants were topped up with fresh compost and mushrooms sprouted. Love that texture on the caps. It has been raining a lot with plenty of thunder and lightning.

Cherry Blossom Motif 1 (LHO 11)

I needed a distraction from WIOSNA 2018. A fast to tat motif. This is a pattern from Lee Hye-oon's Lovely Tatting Doilies for Spring and Summer on page 25. What will it evolve to?

Pandora Bracelet of the Week 15

The Pandora Essence Silver Bracelet with Pandora Rose Essence Love makes a family, Pandora Rose Cute Bunny, Pandora Essence Affection and the Pandora Rose Regal Key. If you like a lightweight bracelet with few charms, I would recommend the Essence bracelet. The Essence charms comes fitted with silicone so once you slide them into position on the bracelet, it should not move around too much. I love it because you forget you have a bracelet on. I prefer the round charms to the button/medallion shaped ones (for Essence) because the latter sometimes flip/roll. I also like to place small charms or dangles from the regular collection in between Essence charms.

This is the Pandora Rose Cute Bunny. It is a small charm and it looked dwarfed among my other charms but on the Essence bracelet, the size is just right. The same goes with the Pandora Rose Regal Key.

Pretty Cakes

Yesterday was Deepavali. This cake at the supermarket counter was decorated just for this occasion. That is a simple oil lamp on the top of the cake.

Another is this rangoli inspired cake. We saw a few rangoli at the shopping mall last weekend.

The previous round in Lizbeth Size 40 Col. 700 English Rose Medium, looked like little butterflies. Just started this current round in Lizbeth Size 40 Col.160 Country Kitchen.

Sparkling Pandora Floating Heart Locket Ring

I put the captured heart petite inside the heart locket ring. Heart within a heart. You can only fit one petite in the ring. I was a little late in getting the heart petite and it was no longer on sale at the store but I eventually found it at the online store.

Growing Bittergourd

The service balcony faces South and it may not get enough sun as it is partially blocked, but I am trying anyway. I love this vegetable. Bought one to cook and collected the ripened seeds. Dried them on a paper napkin and planted them in a pot. They germinated in no time. Leaves are yellowing but flowering too. A little baby has grown. Will it become an edible fruit?

My progress so far.
A little slow but it is moving along.
Have you seen Fox's completed WIOSNA 2018?
