Internet groups, boards, and blogs can literally open up the world to us as stitchers and otherwise. But we don't often get to meet some of our online friends face to face. However, I was privileged to meet Kathy (and Rory) when she came down to NC for vacation at the beach. We met at the house where they were staying and enjoyed a wonderful visit talking about everything. She's every bit as interesting and nice as I'd thought she was online. Her Irish setter, Rory, was beautiful and so well-behaved (must be nice.....lol).
When I left, there was no one to take our picture together, so we did the best we could. It was so bright you couldn't even tell what picture you were taking, but we tried.
Kathy gave me this really wonderful stitching bag with a gorgeous fob and scissors inside. I will truly treasure these.
I have something in the making for her, but had no chance to finish it before I got there. I'll be sending it to you, Kathy. Note the name on the bag - she got it at her LNS, which happens to have the same name as my LNS. Nice coincidence from NY to NC. Thanks so much for the visit and gifts, Kathy. We need to make this a yearly event.....:)
