It was quite a challenge meeting Val whilst we were in Singapore, due mainly to an over possessive family! It was even more of a challenge to meet up with Ellen (Singtatter) mainly because she was away for most of the time that I was in Asia, but I did manage to catch up with her before returning home. We met outside the MTR very near to where my son lives, we had a very quick chat and went on our separate ways. It was long enough to hand over the shuttles Ellen had bought, this is the first time that I have done a personal delivery service! Here is a picture of us.
Ellen kindly handed to me her latest sunflower paperclip design which she has not published yet. My youngest son was taken with this (he never usually comments on my tatting!) and said he wouldn't mind having such a paperclip in his office. Since then I have downloaded some of Ellen's patterns and now I am on the look out for slightly larger paper clips as the ones I have (in abundance) are too small.
Ellen also included this flower and again my son commented on it,
as you can see it is so pretty.
Although of course it is a rose, it did remind me of this orchid which we saw in Singapore's orchid garden
