Saying Hi and GoodBye to Jon

Tuesday, April 28, 2009

Wooow...time flies. And it's already a month since I wrote my last blog. I 've been busy this month. Many things should be done, and too bad, I also don't have many time left to tat and to blog. I've made some of tatted animals from my new book. I think I can upload their picture this week.

Anyway, last weekend I finally had a chance to meet Jon. She's come all the way from Malaysia to Bandung with her big big family to do a lot shopping. Well, I can't describe how many it really is...but she said she was so I guess it's quite a lot hahaha...

I'm trully sorry that I can't join her during the weekend. But I have a little time to see her at hotel, ad at the airport just before she flew back to Malaysia. It's only a short time, but I enjoy the meeting. At that chance, we exchanged gifts. And Jon was generous to me. Look what she gave me

Beads, shuttle, and a yellow thread.

Plastic ring to practice on new technique, a measuring tape, and a...uuuh...ehmm...eeeh...I don't know the name for bobbin-like thing LOL

And also a beautiful snowflake with a plastic ring. When I took them out to get them pictured, my niece spot the snowflake instantly. And she asked me to give it to her. But sorry my lovely niece, it's selfish aunting speaking : NOOO IT'S MINE, LOL.

It's been a nice weekend. Thank you so much Jon. You're a nice person. I hope we can meet again.

HA HA!! I don't blame you one bit for keeping that snowflake! As well you should, Jon tatted it for YOU... not your niece! LOL!

Those white plastic things look like thread winders to me!
What lovely gifts! How lucky that you got to meet a fellow tatting blogger! How cool! :)

Sounds like you had a lovely visit! The white things are known as floss holders. They were originally made to wind separated strands of embroidery floss on, but they are handy for any kind of thread or ribbon.

Hi Feli, it was wonderful to meet you too. I am sorry that it was a rush visit. Let's hope that there will be another opportunity, and we will plan it better this time.
