Malaysia's Independence Day Today



Alynn's RR

I am in the midst of stitching my square of the round robin for Alynn.

Quartet Round Robin

There were to be 4 members participating in this round robin - hence the name 'Quartet RR" - but now Jan has opted out of it, so there are just the 3 of us to carry on (that's Margaret, Alynn and I).

Margaret - teacups
Alynn - Cottage
Myself - Sampler

This is Margaret's RR which I received from Jan Koenig of the USA. I have stitched my teacup for Margaret. Next I will be sending it to Alynn to stitch the next square.
Round Robinn in the NNC Group.

Mel's jar went to Alynn
Mine went to Paul
Alynn's went to Janet
Janet's went me
Paul's went to Mel

Mel will send to Paul his jar as he was not able to attend the bee.

The photos below are purses and bag for August babes at the stitching bee today. The maroon purse for Anna, cream purse for Sabariah, yellow/blue purse for Alynn and the bag (which is actually a colour combo of blues and pinks and yellows which didn't show up well by the scanner)is for Margaret.

Much Ado About Nothing

Well! It's been along time since I did any posting. I haven't had the time to do so and also I wanted to take some photos of some finished crochet bags but sadly two of them have have been given away as gifts. Now I really regret for not taking a photo of the bags.

I am looking forward to the stitching bee that will be held on 15 Aug.'09 at BVII - usual time and place. This time around, Nik cannot make it to the bee as she has some departmental exams to sit on that day. Paul will be absent too but he is going to pass over some gifts that he has made for some lucky people.......well I don't know for whom either! We will have to wait and see won't we?.....

See you all at the bee!.
