This Friday was one of those days and I got to spend the afternoon with two dear friends that I made as a result of blogging, Linda and Carol. So, so much fun. Lunch, wonderful conversation and stitching made for a perfect afternoon.
Here's a quick aside and then I'll get back to telling you about my Friday. If you read here, or any blog for that matter, and you don't have a blog but you're on the fence about starting one...just do it! I've met so many nice people through blogging and made so many wonderful friends - I know you'll have the same experience. Don't be shy. And you don't have to be a genius or a world class writer. (Clearly. Have you gone thru my archives? There's some very non-genius stuff in there. Even anti-genius) Writing may feel odd to you at first, but after a while it'll start to flow and you'll find it's very easy. Like I said, just do it.
OK, back to Friday. Linda had some great projects to show us, including a Hardanger snowman she received as a Fair and Square exchange. (it's on her blog, if you click on her name up there). She had started a neat project for an upcoming retreat, too (lucky girl... wish I was going!). And Carol? Well, she's a master-finisher when it comes to smalls. If you've clicked on her name and browsed through her blog, you'll see her fine, fine work. She let me take a picture...and there are more that she's recently posted over at Stitching Dreams.
|Photo is a bit blurry, but her finishing is exquisite.|
Then, oh my....look what tried to sneak its way into her stitching bag! My poor deformed egg!
|Please, please take me with you and adopt me and fix me! I can't take this woman's ineptitude any more!|
Sadly, the afternoon had to end and I said goodbye to these dear ladies. But I was reasonably close to Michael's, where I had left off some framing a couple weeks ago, so I thought I'd call and see if by chance it was complete. Not quite yet, but they told me it would probably be ready before 9PM. Now, I knew that my Friday night group was meeting nearby, so I decided to hang out with them till 9.
AND I picked up my framing at 9:00 - but I'm saving that for my next post! Catch you then!
