:: Brown Owls 3000 :: About Last Night...

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!)

xx Pip
