A Place We Call Home

Wow!I am really becoming a big fan of CCN & LHN. But have to stop purchasing, not bcos of having too many, but to save enuf to purchase the Threadpack sets. hehehe...

I have completed tis chart, a week ago. Its called - A Place We Called Home. I only did some changes in the colour, cos the colour did not blend well with the fabric colour that i have used.

Now i started with another piece, also from CCN. Its called The Flower Shop. Will post the picture, once completed. Anyway,hope to complete it soon. My aim is to complete one CCN/LHN chart, per month (boleh ke). Must be the guilt in me, cos of late i have been purchasing CCN/LHN charts. Also, since they are rather small charts, so mayb can achieve. Wish me Luck.

Tis is another piece of WIP that i am doing during my weekends. Its has got speciality stitches. And I'm loving it. This one is called Secret Garden by Patrica Ann Designs.

xs update - Porcelain Plates

A beautiful piece of blackwork. We can stitched it as a whole set of 10 pieces of plates or just choose any that we like and stitch as single or double plates. I got tis pattern from the magazine New Stitches.

I wanted to complete the whole set, but due to bad time management i only managed to complete 4 pieces of the plate. It is a gift for my eldest sister's birthday. I was really hoping to finish all but, well.......excuses, excuses. hehehe.... I had it framed just 3 days before Hari Raya, so that i wud bring it up during Raya. Maybe will complete the balance for next year birthday or better still just pass the mag to her to complete it herself kan.. hehehe.... boleh kan my sister.

So tis piece is done by me.

Sorry for the unclear pictures.

Ni bukan copy and paste from blog ain, tau.

Yes, Big Apple have recently open a branch in Johore Barhu. It located at the new Tesco Extra in Plentong JB.

My children were excited when they saw the outlet (mama nye pun excited tp pandai coverline hehe....).

According to Ain, the duren duren flovour is sedap, so we tried it. Agree la ngan Ain, it is sedap, not so sweet. Since it was a big crowd and some of our favourite flavours da abis and tak nak queue up again, we just take saja apa yg ada.

So, apa lagi, mari enjoy.

Ripple - A Baby Blanket

Have finally completed the baby blanket.(baby pun da a few months old. hehehe.) Cantik tak. I used DMC Petra thread as i can't think of any other brand that is cotton. The blanket is bout 32"x36". A small piece je. I used 8 different pastel colours.

At the initial stage, i wanted to do Granny's squares for the blanket but change my mind after going thru some of the members blog in the ripples group. I came across JMK's blog and immediately fell for the piece that she have completed.

As i am not gud in reading crochet instruction, I wrote to JMK to ask for her help. She was so kind to chart out the diagram for me. Thanks JMK.

Also i like to thank Ain, for purchasing the threads for me.

Split Rings

Never like the idea of cut & tie off, when i need to do the next round. Ooopss! me story bout tatting, ok.

So Dania & Ain taught me how to do Split ring. At 1st, i really had a problem, more like getting a split headache but after a few times of tutoring and explanation, on blog, on the phone, i manage to do the Split ring. Happy.....

So i practise to do the Snowflakes that need to do Split rings.

Tadaaaaaaaaaa....... 11th & 17th Day of December. Not that neat la. Ain's 17th December is so so much nicer then mine (jealoue tau. HeHeHe...) But the main thing is i manage to learn to do the Split Ring.

Update - Tatting & XS.

Phew! was quite a relief when i completed the 4th round of the Moms pink doily. Its becoming 'prettier & prettier'.(what a decription)hehehe....

Will not be starting the 5th round yet, as i have to complete some other w.i.p. Cos once if i start the next round, i can't stop.

After completing the tatting piece, i have also finished tis little piece of my wip xs. Tis piece is called 'Spot of Coffee' by LHN.

There is a mistake (jgn pandang dekat2). I only realise it when i have nearly completed the round but i didn't frog cos the mistake is at the starting point. Have to be more careful in the coming rounds.

Phew! not sure when it will be completed.

WIP in Tatting - Moms Pink Doily

Ooops! Wip in Tatting.(like i don't have enough of xs wips. hehehe....)

I really like tis pattern so much. I have told myself that i will do it ONE day when i am a bit pandai in tatting. But it seems that i can't wait for that ONE day. I have to launch it.

This pattern u can get it from here.

So here it is, My Moms Pink Doily (Round 1 & 2 completed)

I have just started with Round 3. At tis round, i will be abit slow cos of the space in between the rings. Still having problem to make sure the space is even throughout (many times frogging da).

Will update again when i have completed Round 3.

Psst: sorry for the unclear picture.

Mission Possible - Tatting

Phew! at last i finished tis little piece. (with a few mistakes) hehehe...

Not happy with the finishing results, but happy la finally i can tat. I think my tensions are a bit tight, mana tak nye, my fingers were like all over. Lucky the fingers didn't get entangled with each other, only the thread.

Addicted? Hmmmmmmm.....not going to continue with it yet. Just for fun, create a WIP 1st. Hoping to tat a doily someday.(high hopes, huh!)

So now, i have to reverse gear and back to my Project X.
