Beadit Kit *Alice* - Japan

Bracelet kit from Beadit, Japan.

A lovely bracelet with a white rose, pearls and size 15 seed beads.

The center flower.

This bracelet use a flower part as clasp and it's very difficult to handle. Will add in
something to make it easier to wear.

Quite a difficult beading kit as mostly petite seed beads are used. Take a long time to
adjust the green leaves, rectangular beads and the seed beads around the flowers to
sit in neatly round the rose.

Mid Autumn Festival

Cherrie's Malaysian lanterns from grandpa

                              Hong Kong Mooncakes from Sum and Cindy

Mid Autumn Festival, a traditional Chinese festival which  is
held annually on the 15th day of the eighth month in the
Chinese calendar. This year it falls on  22 Sept 2010. It is
a date that parallels the  autumnal equinox of the solar
calendar, when the moon  is supposedly at its fullest and
roundest.  In my childhood time, my sisters and brothers
and I joined other children in the neighbourhood and
we carried lanterns lighted up with candles and walked
around our housing estate eating mini mooncakes for kids. 
In this mordern time  children carry lanterns with battery
operated lights.
