Indonesia has suffered from some bombing around Bali and Jakarta. I can't talk a lot about it, but it has created fear for everybody, not only local, but tourists as well. Terroris has a powerful weapon to spread fear and it might lead to degradation of a country.

The last bombing was happened on July 17th at Marriot Hotel Jakarta and Ritz Carlton, which only appart few minutes. It was shocking because we just had a Presidential Election just 2 weeks before. Even Manchester United cancelled their visit to Indonesia! What a shame...

Recently, a group of young people make a campaign, a movement called IndonesiaUnite . Like it's written on their website "Indonesia Unite is a movement. A stand point that Indonesia is united and have no fear". In a spirit of nationality and to celebrate our Independence Day on August 17th, this is what I came out with :

It's absolutely not the best ^_^ This is my first block tatting. Please forgive me for the mess. But hey...I'm not afraid...(to show it) LOL

I also made some phone dangle. I was very sleppy on one of my tax class, so I start to draw sketches, nothing original, I must saw the design somewhere. But I think it's quite easy to figure the DS count, so here they are

I try hard to create a "Happy ending" : something that doesn't need end-hiding. Do you have idea to make a better ending?

And of course more phone dangles from familiar pattern :

Pretty pretty design from Jon Yussof. Thank you Mak Cik Jon ^_^

Valerie square from Eliz Davis. Here's the lovely pattern.

That's all for now. Thank you for dropping by. Have a nice day to all.

Things You Won't Leave Without

Wednesday, August 5, 2009

There's an application PICK 5 at Facebook, you pick 5 things you won't leave your house without it.

Here's my top 5 :
1. My tatting bag
2. Wallet
3. Handphone
4. House Key
5. Hand Sanitizer

And what will happen if I don't bring one of those?
When I miss the last 3 things, it simply : "Uuups...forgot them..ah well...I'm gonna be fine"
Wallet is indeed important thing in my days. I got my money, and ID, driving license. Should bring them all the time. But if I left it, just cross my fingers, hope that there won't be any inspection whatsoever LOL

But when it come to forget about tatting bag : MISERABLE it is.
That's what happen today. A chaotic morning, running late to office, and no tat session during lunch break. Ouch!! What a gloomy day!

Few weeks ago I finished another cross, pattern by TeriDusenbury . Thanks for sharing the pattern Teri. She's such a talented person isn't she? I hope she's getting better soon.

It's going to be my new Biblemark ^_^

And a pattern from Japanesse book (sorry again to the author..I can't remember your name). Originally created to make a vest. But I can't manage big project, so I repeat the inside square patterns 4 times to make is as a coaster.

Made with olympus No. 40

Well, that's that for today. Back to work and hope that today is not so gloomy as I thought ^_^ And good day for all of you.
