Sue, the lovely leader of the 3000 Brown Owls was ill yesterday, so Shannon (of Miss Jackson and the Southside Brown Owls chapter) and I took the helm of the Madame Brussels posse, offering ourselves up as slightly less fabulous Sue-replacements.
There were a heap of ladies in attendance. There was a lot of crochet and Pippy Slippering going on. And there were tons of other crafty activities on various laps as well.
I drank a Bloody Mary which kept scattering chili about the place and somehow lost its celery stick in a pot plant. Shannon drank a Martini and snacked on parfait of the non-sweet variety. There were many other snack and sippers, including Tess McCabe, Sarah, Jen, Linda, Kitty and MORE! I do not know all their names, but their faces were lovely.
I showed off a bit and taught a few beginners how to get going with their hooks. Shannon was a lovely hostess, and chatted beguilingly to the crafters on the middle table. And we thought a lot about the missing Sue, tucked up in her sick bed. Get well Sue-n!
Thanks to everyone who came along and a big thanks to Sue for continuing to run this group (and indeed for inventing the Mme Brussels chapter!)
