(Round 2 of the 25 Motif Challenge) Motif No. 2 - Clips for Fathers' Day, and Tsai Chin in Concert


This is the hardest for me so far, it took me three attempts before I could get it right, and a lot of pondering on how to go on with the design in-between. Phew! Just barely made it for the online tatting class for this month. This pattern may not be as versatile as the others, but it is specially dedicated to all dads out there.

It has been a while since I last attended a concert. Last Saturday, my mother and I were there, at the Singapore Indoor Stadium, for Taiwanese evergreen diva - Tsai Chin 蔡琴 - in her “Tsai Chin 2009 The New Endless Love” tour. I may not know more than a few of her oldies, but I remembered listening to her classics such as “恰似你的温柔” (Just Like Your Tenderness) and “读你” (Reading You) during my school days.
Tsai Chin's own rendition of hits by Jacky Cheung, Angus Tong, Wang Jie has her own unique ways with the songs with her naturally magnetic rich vocals. And a surprise at the concert - saw our Senior Minister, Mr Goh Chok Tong, up front and close entering the hall and sitting at the first row. Must be a great fan of Tsai Chin to attend the concert right after his recent bout of chicken pox!

Hi Clyde, the pattern is already on the Online Tatting Class. You can also access by clicking on the word "pattern" as I have linked it.

Thanks, TattingChic and Gina. Well, if you like tatted words, there is at least one more but that will be later this year. This other one will be a great little gift suitable for everyone.
