Summer Garden by CCN

Another CCN??? Hehehe....I'm loving it....Just completed another piece. Its called Summer Garden. I have stitched on a 28ct linen(hand-dyed but not by me la).

As usual, i have made some changes (not much la) in some colours so as to match with the fabric colour. Also, i have never like to stitch animals motifs on my xs. In the chart there is a cat & rabbit. So i stitched an extra plant to replace the rabbit and for the cat, i sew a charm. Just nice that i have a piece of charm called My Garden.

Thanks to all for dropping by. Happy Stitching to all my friends.

Tatting - SCMR

Yes!Yes!Yes! Mission accomplished. I can do/tat SCMR.

Last nite, with printed copies of How to make a Mock Ring (tutorial from Jon's blog. Thanks Jon, its really helpful), i finally succeeded. So for a start, i did tis pattern since it look simple. Its called Floret from Jon's Snowflakes Collection book.

The outcome is not that nice, i mean my tatting work, but I'm happy with it. I can now tat patterns that have SCMR.

But i have to further do 'autopsy' la. Cos i used 2 different colours, but the turn out was just 1 colour. Why eh? Is it bcos' no switching of shuttles? hehehe.....

Tis is the next piece that i have started. Beautiful. Will talk about it further when i have finished the whole set.
