August and September ATCs

My birthday ATC for Sharon McGrath (Australia) is slightly late. I made use of a part of a bigger tatted square motif for the background.

This is the corresponding August ATC.

And the full square motif I tatted as a model for Georgia Seitz.

I had to tat and sew up the September 2012 ATC too, so that I have 9 pieces for our current ATC exhibition in the Bishan Library.
Here is my fabric ATC calendar I did so far, dedicated to the birthday gals in the StitchinFingers Birthday ATC swap.  A blogsite has been set up for the exhibition (18 Aug - 12 Sep 2012).

August Green Paper Collage Challenge and Tatted Bookmarks

Remember The Green Paper Collage Challenge I did every month from Jan to Apr this year? The dear lady, Mary Green, has been sick, but she is feeling better and is now back to issuing the monthly challenge.  I almost missed it and just saw it today.  I did my ATC in the last moment and I just made up the crown as I tat and did it in one attempt without any blocking.  Certainly could have been better, but well, nothing is perfect.  So, here's my August entry for the challenge - "Royal Tour" ATC, with a yellow tatted crown. 

What have I been doing?  Tatting away!  For 3 colleagues who resigned in August, ...

and for Ivan's teacher, Mrs Jenny Wong, who accompanied my boy and 4 other boys to the University of California, Berkerly, for 6 long weeks.

And a musical comedy with bedazzling cabaret dances by the glamorous diva, Zaza (Ivan Heng)!
