Deepavali and it's a holiday here. I walked to the Forest Reserve Institute near my home. It was bustling with activities of joggers, walkers and cyclists. I think I'll walk there on Saturdays next time instead of public holidays ... less people and vehicles. I stayed on the main roads but when I get stronger with my walking I'll take on some trekking.

|And here's where I trashed out all my aggression on the squash courts! :)|

Aneela Hoey's Little Apples (freebie). Love Aneela's illustrations, I may just get some of her other designs from her Etsy shop. With stitching all 6 strands of floss, it sure is a different experience and I quite like the beady looking effect of it. Now the filling of her jacket will be a task, with 6 strands my threads run out FAST!
Faizon's blog is my go to blog for free tatting patterns. A generous soul indeed. The pattern is Merriment doily. I am tatting this with Zarina's hand dyed Hakelgarn tatting thread sized 20 Aubrielle. Faizon will know that I'm not into 2 shuttle tatting so I am employing her tip of using the SLT (shoe lace trick) instead.
