The Budapest International Craft Club

We had a meeting again, and though every time I say this it is always such a balm to my soul, and keeps getting better. Originally it started as a meeting with an American girl who knits. By the time we organized the first meeting there was the three of us, and then we found Dinara, and Genia, and now Suad, who is actually the boss of Dinara. So the club started with knitting, but since Dinara and I crochet too, and now we found that Suad is doing jewelry and beads, and now thinking to take knitting up again, i thought why couldn't we embrace all crafts? The main thing will be always knitting, but still...
For today's meeting Suad invited us to her place. The whole evening was wonderful. I met up Dinara a bit early, so we decided to drop in one of the markets to get us some fruit, then we caught up with Kriszta, and the we went to Suad's place. Which is one of the best location of the city, the apartment (and even the house) is very, very nice. She has this wonderful balcony that looks out to the Duna, right next to the house's courtyard there is a church, it's tower is a vital part of the view.Lovely, just lovely. Suad spoiled us with wonderful snacks, bruchetta with pesto, and tomatoes, cheese, and every kind of drink one can think of. I ate so much...
The meeting of course was lovely, I knitted an inch or so of the ribbing of the cardi I am working on.
And finally Dinara shot a few picture of the blue butterfly dress:


Here are some details too. If you look closely you can see beads on the straps and at the edge, but those beads are all around the dress. Such a sucker they don't show more.
