Bits and pieces

I'm feeling a bit scatter-brained today, so it's time for a scatter-brained post.

First, 8 little clovers for Jon's Lace Mat Tat-along.  The amazing Jon is updating and charting a series of vintage tatting patterns. I'm doing mine backwards, clovers first.

Next, the hair clip plan in progress. The pansies are from 100 Flowers to knit and crochet by Lesley Stanfield.  The clips are wrapped in ribbon and the decorations are stitched on.  No glue.

Next, my new favourite skirt.  See the pretty colours!  It flares too, just enough to twirl.  Big girls like to twirl too.

Lastly, two baju raya, one baju melayu for my big guy and one kebarung for the little lady.


  1. Great clovers and hairclips!! :)
    Love the skirt and my 22 yr.old daughter and I totally agree that big girls love to twirl too!!!

  2. Lovely clovers, and hair clips,
    What a lovely colourful skirt, I think it would be my favourite too.

  3. Clovers look nice! I just might tat my clovers instead of the Split Rings. Will have to experiment..

  4. Bravo (applause, applause) for deciding to tat your Norma Benporath Lace mat from the outside in. It definitely will make for a unique spin on the Tat-Along experience.

    When I get to that point with my Tat-Along project (the end for me) I hope to tat it all in one pass with split rings. But if that doesn't go well, I will surely be making clovers like you.

    Your hair clips are so sweet too. And count THIS big girl among the twirlers too.
