I was in Spotlight on Sunday and was pleasantly surprised when someone I have not seen for over 40 years dropped by at the craft room. She drove from over 80km away just to have a look at what Spotlight is all about because almost everybody was talking about it.
This is Nurima (or Kak Nuri) who attended the same school as I did over 40 years ago. She walked into the Craft Room where I was at, and called me by my online name, Jon Yusoff. She had been a follower of my blog ( and I am not even aware of it). She sat at the table and we started chatting about tatting, at first, and went on to other things. That was when I found out that we attended the same school, where she was a senior there.
She was looking for shuttles in Spotlight - but did not find any, not surprising - and I told her that I have some with me. The conversation proceeded to learning how to tat. It was a short lesson, just over an hour, but I am happy to say that Kak Nuri got the flip at the first attempt. She is one smart lady, otherwise, why would she be appointed a prefect in school.
A few days later she sent me a picture of her first finished project, a butterfly, shown in the inset. Looking forward to seeing more tatting from her.
