Margaret had asked her to bring it along as she wanted to take a closer look at the lovely piece. It is indeed a lovely piece!
Janet , Margaret and Jackie too had arrived.
She (Faizon) even brought along a great book on tatting which she had authored specially for those beginners wanting to learn tatting.
I just love this piece by LHN and had actually put up my name for the Sisterhood Stitching but I had to back out when the stitching started as at that time I was going through a big crisis at the office and could not concentrate enough to spend time stitching. I hope to one day stitch this piece.
Seen here is Faizon making her choices. I bet if I were buying any, I’ll end up buying the whole box as the colours were all so yummy! LOL!
I just gotta have (like as if I don't have enough books on bags already! LOL!) this book of bags by Amy Butler which Jackie brought to show us!
I was impressed with Jackie’s mini quilt piece and if I was not so crazy on making bags, I would have wanted to do one mini quilt just like that one! LOL!
Mel arrived too at about the same time, but she could not stay long enough to work on anything as she had to go back to take care of Nigel who had sprained his ankle. Poor boy. I do hope Nigel recovers from the sprained ankle quickly so that he can go about doing all the things and activities that he loves to do.
Alynn arrived at about the same time too but did not stay long either when her son suddenly came down with fever and threw up just as they arrived. It was a pity. I hope her son is feeling better today.
Soon after I picked up Aiman from his Art Class, everyone decided to adjourn for lunch. Initially I, Anna, Veronica and Jo wanted to just wait at Starbucks until Margaret, Jackie, Paul, June, Zarina and Janet came back from lunch as we wanted to discuss our activities for next year. But when Faizon left, all four of us decided to join the 5 of them for lunch at Chawan.
Thanks to Faizon for the tatting lessons and to June for the knitting lessons.
