It's Windy Outside - Let's Fly Kites

Ruth said it is usually windy in the month of March, and asked for some kites for the calendar.

I have made mine. The pattern is in the Tatting Pattern Calendar for March 16th.

Besides that I am still working on the edging and the blue doily. The edging (for a tablecloth) turned out to be not so smooth-sailing as I had hoped. Like I said earlier, I only wanted the corners so I modified the pattern a bit (taken from the Priscilla Tatting Book 2). I had to undo one of the rows a couple of times because of some miscalculation at the start of the row. I think it is going to work now, I only have one more row to finish the first of the corners.


  1. Ah...that's lovely...our very own wau bulan :)

  2. Jon, I absolutely love your kite and the story behind it for your homeland. I hope to make it as soon as I finish this round on the doily. Thank you so much for all you have shared with me and taught me.

  3. I loved getting the background on the kite too in the calendar blog. Good job!
    :-) Gina

  4. Your kite is so beautiful...colors,shape,and all!

  5. Wah...cantiknya wau bulan...very creative!

    What's next...wayang kulit pulak?
