finished Singapore River

It have always been telling myself that I will paint the Singpore River one day and bravo ! I finally get down to painting it at the water colour painting class.
Started sketching it in October, painted it mid way but had to stop painting in Nov and Dec as teacher took a month break in Nov and I was too occupied with lots of activities in Dec. Eventually commenced my class in Jan and finished it in 2 lessons but struggled with brush strokes due to lack of practice. I did some touch up on the painting a little here and there but am too lazy to take another shot of it. So here it is:

Spent the quiet new year looking through my notes on tatting and came across this tatted medallion pattern by Lisa C Trumble. I turned the pattern upside down and tatted a pair of earrings instead. These earrings were tatted with Heather's (www.hajdesigns31.etsy.com) hand dyed thread in Mulberry cream size 20. Added some beads to bring out the purple. Can anyone spot a mistake in the earrings?

blue ring

Thanks to Marilee Rockley's ring pattern, I came up with this blue ring and added in beads to enhance it. The ring eventually turned out too big for my finger. It is indeed a charming accessory!
