It's happen to me almost all the time. As soon as I finish one piece, the question is "what would I make next?" Although I have a lot pattern and a list of 'to make' pattern, I just can't decide what would I make next.
My husband oftenly caught me staring at my laptop or my tatting box wondering what colour I used to make what piece. It's really a difficult decision ^_^
I even has committed to make series of same pattern with different color, or different pattern with same theme, but it just too hard to commit for. Really! It's happen all the time; and I only tat for a year.
Is it called a moment of bore? Or just a lack of creativity? ^_^

Left picture : In Indonesia, we called it Suji Leaves. It's used to give green color to cake.
Right picture : I crush the leaves, take out the green color of it, and boil it with the thread for about 45 min.
So...How it's turn out you ask? Here it is...taaaa daaaaa.....drum roll please...
I compare the dyed thread with the with one on the ball. Can you see the green color? No? Me neither...hahaha...I totally fail it!!! ^_^
Something is missing...For my first try, I didn't use any (any...) chemical. Simply put salt in it. At last I think salt it's not enough, but I still carry on though...and so that's what happen to my poor steam thread
I have to gather more information about this natural HDT, and meanwhile I think I like to take a shortcut by using fabric coloring which is much simpler.

after a fun blowing candle thing, another surprise is coming : A birthday Gift!! ^_^ This is what he gave me
A shuttle and a tatting book of course...Too bad I forgot to see the author name. I'll put it tomorrow.
It's quite a surprise that he bought me this book. It's expensive and few months ago I decided not to buy this book. But he remembered and buy it for me. And a shuttle? It's officially become my tenth shuttle ^_^
The rest of the day is simply the day...But not till the night. A family dinner on sea food stall and finally....well, I can call it a birthday gift from my father in law : FISH SPA TICKET hahaha...
For you who's never heard about it, well...here's some photos to sum up all the story :
Yup...I take a scary leap on a small tub full of Nibble Fish who will eat the dead skin cell of my feet. The picture in the left is my picture...while on the right was taken from internet for you to have a closer look. It's not hurt at all but surely tickle a lot and the feeling that something is biting and eating from your body...well..not really fun ^_^
another "bitting" picture from internet ^_^
Fun isn't it...That's my birthday...and now surely back to work...
See ya ^_^
