Hand-stitiched Books, Motif No. 13 - Snowflake Paperclip and ATCs

Last Thu was the release of the PSLE results and the whole family went to the school together to root for my boy. His results - a score of 272 (highest score this year was 290), 4 A* and Distinction for Higher Chinese! We are so proud of you, Ivan!

Then on Sat, we attended Betsy's KBCC session to make these hand-stitched matchbook notebooks. Thank you Betsy for hosting the session, Moses for sharing with us how to make the books, and Suzanne for the home-made keuh patti!

Time really flies, we are less than a month from Christmas. Have you done all your Christmas tatting? I haven't :( But here's a quick pattern for you, a snowflake paperclip, available on Georgia's Online Tatting Class. This will be my Motif No. 13 for the 25 Motifs Challenge.

These 2 ATCs and a tatted butterfly paperclip went to Lynette for a Oct Fabric ATC swap,
while these 2 ATCs I sewed up and a tatted "Joy" paperclip went to Carol D for a Nov Christmas swap. Can't wait to receive mine!And the extras I stitched up. As at now, the blue X'mas ornament on the top right corner is still available for trade.

And to show you 2 more photos of the bazaar on 19 Nov.

A BIG Thank You to Sally for helping to man the stall throughout! I couldn't have managed without you!

Look at all your fabulous tatting interspersed in there with other art mediums! So cute! Your work has a clean and whimsical look to it! You've definitely put your own signature on your tatting and it's very cool!

Hi TattingChic, Claudia, Moses, Sherry, thank you for dropping by and all your lovely comments.

I was so busy preparing for the bazaar, I didn't have time to come up with more new tatting designs. Hope I will be able to come up with some new creations soon.
