Happy Sunday, everyone! ^o^
Yesterday, when I was home, after I went to craft shop to bought some craft stuff, my friend sent a LINE chat to me. She asked me to accompany her to craft shop to buy yarn. She want make something with Broomstick pattern. She very excited after I sent her some photos about how I learn to crochet, learn broomstick, a book of crochet, etc. Yeah, I bought a hakken or hakpen (crochet needle) some weeks ago without knowing how to crochet. That friend of mine, her name is Martha, is know how to do crochet. She interested with cotton yarn that I used. I use three colours cotton yarn. So she also wants buy same kind of yarn. So, we went to a craft shop at Banjarbaru. There are lots of cute colours of cotton yarn, like warm ivory and yellow, soft orange and orange, deep green and olive, baby pink and pink, white and brown. I like those colours combination, but Martha doesn’t want it. She looking for a three colours cotton yarn. Fortunately, she got one, the last one actually. It’s colours are very similar to mine (the yarn that I used when I learn how to do crochet). She also bought other yarn and a new needle. But, she didn’t satisfied. Then we went to another craft shop at Martapura. She bought felts, beads, pins, etc. The last destination was my home. She want to read my crochet book and make something (actually she also wants to make a necklace from beads and glass). After we’re in my home, she sent messages via BBM to my other friend who’re pregnant for 4 months, Erika, to invited her to join us doing craft.
I think Erika has baby boy because she doesn’t want to put make up on her face. Usually, she will not go out without manage her eyebrow (because she is already married). Unfortunately, Erika go home earlier because she was pick up by her husband.
But before that, I show them my needle book (I wrote about this weeks ago). They want it too. I said I will help them to make it, just choose which colours of felt that they want. Of course Martha choose yellow (her favorite colour), and olive (my suggestion). Erika choose red and dark green almost black felt. I help them to sew the needle book, Martha makes flowers and leaves, and Erika take a rest because of her pregnancy. Unfortunately, Erika’s husband came before we finish the needle book. So, Martha is the one who bring it to her home last night, of course after we finished it.
This is Martha with her creation.
It was so fun! Crafting with friends is really fun! ^o^
