Wednesday 29 May 2013


Two anniversaries are being commemorated today by people throughout the world. 
60 years ago New Zealander Edmund Hillary and Nepalese Tenzing Norgay reached the top of Mount Everest, the highest mountain in the world, at 11:30 a.m. on May 29, 1953. They were the first people to ever reach the summit of Mount Everest.  Apparently there are some wonderful species of butterflies in Nepal but these are some that are flying to Singapore very soon.

I am absolutely thrilled that tatting is going to be on the wedding banquet tables and even more pleased that there isn't a colour code! Or if there is, well no one has told me!

And 100 years ago today Stravinky's ballet 'Rite of Spring' was performed in Paris and caused a riot.  Up until then ballet was beautiful, elegant, and charming. However this performance was extremely different both in music and dance. Many would say it was a performance 'before its time', today we would think nothing of such modern interpretations of music or dance.

 I am planning on taking these music notes with me to the banquet to put on another table but need to make a few more to make the display worth it!

A close up of the earrings I shall be wearing, certainly people will be very aware that tatting is going to be around on that day!

No I have not gone yet, and might even get another blog post in before I leave. 


  1. Lovely butterflies, I hope you have a lovely time and enjoy the wedding.

  2. I love the colour of those earrings! - you must be getting very excited about the big trip, don't forget to take a picture of all the butterflies scattered on the tables.

  3. Love your earrings! I'm sure everyone in tatland knows by now that that butterfly pattern is my very favourite pattern, so I'm happy to see such a lot of them fly off to Singapore.

  4. Beautiful bouquet of butterflies!! :)
    Wonderful music notes and symbols!! :)
    Lovely earrings!!! :)

  5. Hi Sally

    Many thanks for the close up of your lovely earrings. What thread did you use, it's such a vibrant colour?

    Enjoy your holiday/wedding.

    1. Thanks Anne. I purchase the thread from Tatting and Design which you can see here and wound the two colours together as seen in my 'Pendant' post. The picture does not do them or the pendant justice as they shine more in real life.
