packages and new friends

Saturday, August 28, 2010

I received two packages this week. First package was a special handmade blanket made by my grandma who passed away 6 months ago. Mah we called her. The colors don’t match perfectly, the material came from any scrap cloth she could use. But still it’s very meaningful for me and the whole family. Mah made about 6 blankets, and I’m very honored to have the chance to keep one.

The first package, has moved me somehow. I feel like I to make something like that. No, not a blanket, something smaller maybe, combine with a little tatting here and there. At the same time, I found an online store selling a manual sewing machine. I NEVER use a real sewing machine, but yeaaah…whatever I bought it anyway. 2 days later taaadaaa the second package has arrived.

Still manage to make a straight line though. To make something real, still waaaay ahead LOL

Ow and this week also a great week. It’s always a pleasure to meet new tatter friend. Especially if they are near. I found, online, 2 Indonesian who like tatting too. Wooohoo. Never met them personally, but we talk sometime by email or Facebook message. Wish I can see more and more tatter in Indonesia.

Next week is a long holiday in Indonesia celebrating Idul Fitri. Can't wait to tat a whole week ^_^

here they are

I work on the scented bag, as I planned, and here they are

Annes Nuperellenett's beautiful pattern , filled with potpourri

the famous Heart's Desire, filled with coloured styrofoam and scented material

I make two pieces of each pattern, so when it hanged, we can see both side.
Last night, I showed my pieces to my family. When everyone make compliments on it, my dear mom came up with one practical question :
"How would it be if you want to change the potpourri? Would it be difficult?"
I said, "I think so Ma, I have to open some stitches, replace the potpourri, and stichted them back. "
Then she replied again "Mmmm....So I guess you should keep them on a vaccum plastic bag, to preserve the scent...."
Me : : eeeerrrr *speechless*
OK Ma I'll make another one for you, a scented bag, with no scent at all

I'm back...and wish never leave EVER again

Six months in my "small world of tatting", without cheering sqaud, I finally realized,

Tatting alone was not fun!! It never been fun!

So now I'm back, back to my lovely "Big World of tatting", quite surprise that nothing change, including my 26 followers who doesn't 'unfollow' me **grup hug**

Nothing change in my daily life. I try my best to fit in to my 6 month old-job, tight schedule, overtime, housework and so on, and so on. Yet, I still have quite some time to tat...Yiiippiiie.

Lately, I'm working on small tat and stiched them on baby t-shirt. After long time hiding ends, stiching, cutting, tearing eye, here they are, specially made for my nephew

sorry for blurry pictures ^_^

saw these cute turtles somewhere, sometime in the past while browsing on the net, also stiched on baby t-shirt. With a bit close up, I count the stiches. So sorry, can't mention the owner, lost it's track.

sure you know, these are tatbit's alphabet

love it the most, cute little feet from heather's pattern

It was quite an experience, whole process was fun, but I think I need a break before start to think to make the sequel ^_^

Next project might be some scented bag. Already made 1 bag, move on to second one. Might finish 'em next week. Till then, Happy tat my tat buddies.
