Hi Everyone —
What a great day we had in Debbie’s Asian Collage class! We finished our last three sections before lunch — including the infamous double alternating nobuko (dark aqua on the left side) which I have been eagerly awaiting. Very nice textured stitch! So, after lunch, we stayed in our classroom and continued stitching whatever we needed/wanted to. Debbie walked around and helped us and entertained us thoroughly! I feel pretty good about the progress I made stitching today.
Our class presented Debbie with a bouquet of flowers to thank her for an absolutely fun class and beautiful design. We all want to do the companion piece next year — I even heard a few folks considering making a bid on a guaranteed first choice for Anaheim prize at the auction tonight! They say that it typically goes for as much as $1000.
After class I managed about a thirty minute swim before meeting with the NJNA chapter attendees for a fun dinner at Copabanana and great margaritas and burgers! Sue and Susan cabbed back early because Susan had a teacher’s meeting. I forgot to get a picture with everyone, but here are Carol, Heidi, Robin, and me. (You might have guessed that we were the four who ordered double margaritas!)
Now I’m off to beddy because I have an early morning wake-up for a tour of Winterthur.
Cheers to all! Rosie
