Just a quick one that I just have to share.
I received this lovely shawl from Radha, a crafting buddy from Alor Setar, a city in the north of Malaysia. I have only met Radha once before when she came down to Kuala Lumpur to meet with a group of us for a stitching bee. During that meeting, Radha gave a demo of hairpin lace. Hairpin lace is something that I have always wanted to try, especially with tatting thread, but never got round to really making the effort of learning how to. I was very, very surprised to received this a few weeks back. Thank you Radha.
This piece was also made by someone from Alor Setar. Jacee and I got to know each other through the internet but we have never met. I asked her if I can view some of her work but she does not have a blog. Instead she sent me a picture of this 'Patchwork' mat made from a pattern by Mary Koinor. It is too pretty not to show it to the rest of the tatting world, so I asked her if I can post the picture in my blog. Lucky me and you, that she agreed.
