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.

I am so sorry to hear about the political unrest and dangers your area is experiencing right now. My prayers are with you. You have a lovely spirit of courage and resilience about you (that shows in your words).

Your tatting is lovely. :)

Wah! Pandai sekali!

I love your tatted phone charms...

It is such a shame that so very few can spoil so much. If terrorists counted the real costs, they would think twice! Stay strong - Indonesians have been so for a long time!

Your tatting is lovely. I really like your phone dangles. Your much better on the block tatting than I, because I haven't even tried it yet! Good job.
I pray that you and your loved ones stay safe.

I'm sorry to hear of the trouble in your country. I really had no sense for the horror of terrorism before Sept. 11, 2001. That sickening sense of horror comes back to me whenever I think of that day or when I see news reports of terrorist attacks in other countries. I pray daily for world wide peace.

Your tatting is beautiful! I love Jon's patterns, and I can't wait to receive her new book! Thanks for visiting my blog. Now I know where yours is!

Fox said...

I hope the political situation is improving for your country....

Your block tatting is amazing! I just tried this as well and the results...... hmmmm.......

The phone dangles are terrific. I have a lot of trouble with Jon's covered rings, so I have ordered her book! Hope it works! Yours are lovely.
Fox : ))
