You would never know what I found at one of the shops here. This particular shop sells tidbits from Myanmar and it also serves at a maid agency. Saw this tatted shawl hanging at the entrance of the shop and have to buy it. I learnt from the shop owner later that it is common to see burmese ladies using these tatted shawls in their country. Anyway, I ended up buying 2 pieces, one black and one cream coloured shawl.

Heart's desire

This heart was tatted using Mercer Crochet size 20 thread. I think I must have gotten this pattern from www.georgrasertz.com several years ago. Not sure if this site still exists. The background is a folkart painting of carousel painted on a stool during one of my folkart classes. I love the vibrant colours after it was completed.

colorful cross

well, have I been tatting lately? Yes and no..... wish I have the time to tat, paint, study my notes, exercise and read my books. In the midst of tatting a little dolly and will post it soon. Here's a colourful cross which I have tatted some time ago.


My first painting on orchids was a disaster. However my 2nd piece turned out looking just fine and was even put on the wall on display by the teacher! "Not bad" for someone who has just started to paint flowers, she said.
