So whats up with everyone?

Hence bye February….bye KL, for now.

Have a great weekend!

Its 22nd Feb and i am typing this while listening to speeches at Pullman Hotel. We are having Chinese New Year celebration during the last day of the festival and my SOCOM team is the backbone.

So i was very busy last week, leaving office late due to the meetings for our event.

Anyhow, i had two days off last weekend to recharge and to look at what i have for my MBC.

Still remember the Maybelle flowers? I made four of them, crochet their squares and toy around with what to do with them.

And i also thought of making a small bag with these four flowers but i decided not to as i dont need more bags (as if).

As to not to run away from my project, finally i made a decision to try to size the flowers so they could go along with my blanket.

So i crochet the border and here is how ill position the squares roughly

Hope it will turn out okay once completed.

So thats my update so far. I already have 21 squares as at yesterday for feb (pheww i’m up to date albeit the crazy week).

Right, one picture of the small garden. My pot of plumed cockscomb bloomed (yeay). Here’s a picture 🙂

See you all next update. Stay healthy!

i think i need to put in another rule for my MBC. that is, if its a month end closing week, i can have a lapse in updating the blog. having said that, it was indeed a busy week during the end of Jan. sorry for not updating my progress, and thank you for reminders!

anyhow i was also not feeling well last week, my eczema was bad, but alhamdulillah i went to see my doctor last Monday, gave me a jab and some pills and i am doing better now.

so here is the update so far. January ended and i have 31 squares wrapped in a bag and stored away.
