I'm showing all these complete sets of fabric ATCs first. This is the set of alphabet "E" - we have 3 elephants (my tatted one, Ann's one in outline and Mari's African one), emu from Sherry and Eames chair from Norma. In case you are wondering, the word "elefant" on Ann's ATC wasn't a mistake, but the German word for elephant. And if you have missed my earlier post about the Eames chair, you can click on the word to go back to the post to find out what makes this chair so special.
Next is "F" - my tatted from piece, Mari's (on the left) and Sherry's (right) fish.
Then comes "G" - my tatted goose, Mari's giraffe, Sherry's gray goose and Norma's grapes.
Lisa Cottrell (USA) has caught up on her swaps, and these 3 pieces came together - snowman for the X'mas swap, "U" is for Unicorn and "W" is for Wolf.
With the snowman piece in, here's all the X'mas ATCs - my tatted "JOY", Vicky Baker's wreath, Eileen Carkott's snow scene, Sue Cox's snow globe, Sharon Scothern's reindeer and Lisa's snowman.
Lovely collections, right!?!
Now, back to my creations. Another pair of paper dolls "Queen for A Day". I know they weren't too creative, but that's my dream for a Queen - wearing designer's clothes and jewellery, and walking a poodle.
This is my boy's school project - constructing a lantern for the Chinese New Year with recycled materials. Can you spot them ? Toilet rows, egg crate, and in fact, the pink tissue papers which were used to wrap things that came in a box from USA some time back. I didn't throw them as the pink is so sweet, came in useful now. We are calling it the "Pavilion of Fortune"!
I just finished a beginner tatting class last weekend with Christine, Gina, Hazel and Shireen. I was inspired to design a simple floral pattern for them to try. It started off as a simple flower on the left, then the flower got bigger, and became 2 with leaves and vine. Finally, I have Floral Bliss done, dedicated to the girls, in celebration of Spring, and a gift for everyone.
