Finishing Basket and Spring Doily cautch up! Gift from Sinapore

I got the handle on the basket, and some wonderful flowers made from the lovely and talented Ninetta click below

I am trying to give the basket a size reference by using the 
"Catch of the Day"

I will be adding green leaves but haven't made them yet!

And the wonderful "Spring Doily 2019" my progress :)
to purchase or tatalong free!
Not sure if I want to add any more colors or just keep these two?

Last but not least from Wendy a lovely Ice Drop

Pear Blossoms Beauties...

 Our rain let up,(and flooding) and got to go for a walk and collect pine needles.  I need a handle for the little basket.  Hard to believe Pear blossoms makes everyone so ill this time of year.
They remind me of strawberry blossoms, I have an idea!
Now someone I know has a pattern for strawberry blossoms?
Help me think :)
This gives you an idea of the size  of basket.  The threads are wet because pine needles need to be kept moist while working with them, I keep every thing in plastic bag with water while I am making the basket!
More to come on the development of basket!
Have a great day!

Hina Matsuri, Empress is ready🎎

She is ready for the all girls festival in Japan
With fan and crown!

The sleaves took even more thought

And getting the crown around the ears and to be able to remove them.

Her robe ties under the are and in the back.  Above the bunny tail.

The robe is done in one swoop the sleaves are tatted separately and last pass on each sleeve is when I add it to the robe.

The pattern was made for the girl and boy children of this family above in picture. The thread size is 20, I am going to try larger thread size for parents or do another custom fitted one for parents next year😊
I have started the emperor, out fit in different colors hopefully will be done by March 3rd

March 3rd Girls Day In Japan

Been working on  tatting fitted clothes for Hina Matsuri a holiday in Japan that is intriguing to me. 

I have enjoyed attempting to make a little empress and emperor's robes for a tribute to a holiday.

I decided to use little rabbits children from Calico Critters, there "Hopscotch Rabbit Family".

I am writing this down.
