After the teacher's explanation, we were left to do the piercing work. Ms Wakayama approached me and spoke to me in very simple English if I needed help. After knowing that I was totally new to patchwork, she focused more attention on me, pin-pointing some steps that required more attention.
Two hours workshop seems very short to me, I was not able to finish it. No choice, I needed to finish it at home, and by myself to figure out the step later.
Before going home, I bought Ms Wakayama's pattern book, even got her autograph ! ^^

After few days of struggling to figure out how to do the pouch, I finally got it done ! YES !!!
