NNC 3rd Anniversary Meet

It was time again to celebrate NNC's third anniversary! This year, Sabariah hosted the gathering at her brand new house located at Setia Alam, Selangor. I as usual had to travel down to KL and Margaret and Jackie came to fetch me at the bus stop and we (including Mel who also got a lift from the sisters) made our way to Sabariah's house. When we reached there, Alynn and her family, Rose, Paul and Anna have already arrived. Some of yummy food were already laid out on the dinning table and more food were brought by MW and Mel! I brought Ipoh Old Town white coffee for the members to have a cuppa! :)


Mel's chocolate strawberry cheesecake

When most of the members have arrived, we tucked in to the sumptuous food - I couldn't decide which to start with first as every dish looked so yummy! lol. We chatted while we ate and also to catch up with some members who had not been active on the board, namely Jo Yap who has been MiA for a while and Valarie Goh who has been jetting about. We were glad to see Faizon, our tatting guru who had a bout of dengue fever recently.

After feasting, it was show and tell time - Nik showed us some of the bags she made. We ooh and aah over the bag she specially made for Diane from USA. I did a applique demo for some of the members who wanted to learn the needleturn method, button-hole stitch and using the bias tape.
I also saw Faizon teaching Valerie how to tat! Mel also showed us how to do a fabric button with the gadget she gave each of us in the goody bag.

Then came the exciting part....the lucky draw and Gift exchange. Diane from USA contributed a book entitled Felt Flowers. (We had to make a felt flower as part of the gift exchange this year and below are the members' creation! Pretty aren't they?) Nik was the lucky winner of the book!

After everyone has ooh and aah over the gifts they received, we had another round of eating, chatting and laughter. It was such a fun-filled day with such good company! Once again.......

Oh Janet, the food looks scrumptious and that strawberry cheesecake? Wow! It was nice looking at your pictures! I wish I lived closer and then i could have partaken and learned from your applique lesson (I have just started to learn this technique and I am totally loving it).
