Friday the 13th! Today I learned how to make a wool felt hat. Pulling and shaping that hat is the most difficult part, but it was the most fun part about making the style come to life. Literally right in front of your eyes, it was taking shape. We also learned to cut on bias and make the sisal hats. It was really up to your imagination. Some people kept it simple, some people went all out. I really enjoyed the different colors that people incorporated into their sisal hat. As for me, I used a black base, with pops of pink and blue.
My friends and I settled down for Korean Barbeque tonight at my apartment. It is very delicious. I haven’t had Hmong rice in a while, so cooking and eating the Hmong rice that my great aunt gave us was very satisfying. My friend made a killer pickled cucumber salad to go with the Korean BBQ.
I bought and made escargot for my friends and I to try. I ended up only eating 3 snails. It was not that bad, but not great either. I think next time I'll go eat out when debating to get escargot. I got one of my friends to try ONE. She said it wasn’t that bad either. I bought us a cheap bottle of Rose Apricot Wine from Carrefour. Everyone liked it a bit.
We played some card games to relax and then finally time to sleep!
