Last February, Aunt Marly came to attend our grand alumni homecoming. (It was a very exciting event as we had that very rare opportunity of enjoying the company of nursing colleagues we haven't seen for a long time. I personally enjoyed the event despite the very hectic schedule it gave me during the preparations.)
Well, did I say Aunt Marly came? Oh yes, she did! Just look at our faces in the photos, a proof of how we enjoyed the 2-day event.

I enjoyed the reunion very much, too! Short-lived, it may have been, yet the memories are there to linger until now. Here's why. See these?
A bagful of yarn!
|Gifts from Aunt Marly|
All these were given to me by Aunt Marly--- yarn, crochet needle of different sizes, weaving needle and stitch markers. Oh, she may not know it because I still haven't had the chance to tell her how, for the first time in my life, I ever had such treasure in my possession! Thank you so much, Aunt Marly, for bringing along all these! I'm so sorry that you had to carry them along in your baggage :( I promise not a single strand of the yarn will be put to waste.
Here's project no. 1--- my first ever Starbella Ruffled Scarf. Tadah!!!!!

I really had no idea how to do this as it was my first time to see and work using this kind of yarn. Thanks to these YouTube tutorials. Learning and doing the craft became very easy!

Oh, I just loved every single step in doing the scarf! I would love to have more of this kind so I can try other variations! Does that sound like having more precious gifts to give away? Well, that remains to be seen. Have a happy weekend!
