The garland is coming along well. At first, it seemed there were a lot of circles to blanket-stitch, but once I banished that thought and began to appreciate just stitching, before I knew it there were only a few left: 18 to go!
This is my friend Shiao Ning. Ning is married to Tien's best friend, Tat Heng (friends since grade school), and she's a corporate lawyer in Singapore. My first trip to Singapore in 2000 was for their wedding.
Ning's son T-Rey had such fun running after seagulls. The seagulls were attracted to the pizza and gyros we brought for our picnic. I cracked up watching T-Ray chase them into flight.
