Surprising, it was an interesting gathering, an eye-opener, with representatives from 13 countries, among them were people from Malaysia, Indonesia, Vietnam, Thailand, Brunei, China, Singapore, Taiwan, Hong Kong, etc.; all dressed up in their cultural national costumes and head gears, all so colourful, glittering and sparkling! After all the speeches, success stories (so inspirational!), awards and oh, the launch of World Learner Cultural Immersion Program - the company started the World Learner Student Exchange Scholarship with a 1 million yuan (S$205,300) donation, and next month, the first batch of 23 Sichuan children, affected by the devastating earthquake in Sichuan in 2008, will be visiting Singapore on a two-week trip. This was in the newspapers earlier, and my boy's school will be one of the hosting schools they will be visiting.
These are the 2 latest ATCs I traded with Kristine. She needle-felted the hearts and the background while I sewed up the edges for her.
I just have a soft spot for all kitties! Kristine drew this with marker pens.
These elephants were folded by Rita, and the photo (Singapore Lights) taken by Pei Ling
I was delighted to receive Mary Strong's fabric ATCs - Butterfly Girl and Forest Bird - love the colour combinations, and the peacock and butterfly are my other favourite subjects.
Finally, here's a giveaway I won a little while ago, but received these lovely items recently - Lime Time and Peachy Keen Soapy Pop from Kiss My Style, and also an eye pillow filled with my favourite dried lavender buds. Love the scents! A little too pretty to use though, especially the soaps!
When I reached home today, a box was sitting right there waiting for me! Here are the goodies from the bag in the box! This is one of the three generous giveaways from Gina, the Tatting Goddess! Wow! Thank you, Gina!
