Meeting up new friends...
Good afternoon dear readers!
I am still around and still stitching away on various projects.
That will be for another post.
Last weekend I was really lucky to meet up with
2 lovely blogging ladies!!
They travelled all the way to Shropshire just so that we could spend a weekend together
of stitching, chatting & stashing
I met Justine from Justine's Cross Stitch and
Rachel from Ten Hour Stitcher
I was quite nervous but now wonder why.
We just got on so well together, it felt like we already knew each other
We spent the day in Wales at the Nimble Thimble.
We swapped goodies, talked, eat, talked more, stashed a bit and talked a bit more
This is what I got from Rachel
Some beads, buttons, needle minder, key ring and a jar bursting with masses of colourful ribbons!
Also been gifted with the lovely friendship chart from My Big Toe
This is what I have received from Justine
A beautiful handmade zipped pouch with thread catcher
(I haven't stopped using these since I got them!)
and some bits and pieces: hand cream, tissues, scissor, needles and a very appropriate drink coaster :)
Thank you again ladies for these wonderful gifts, they will sure be treasured!
I also gifted them with some goodies but have no pictures,
so you'll have to hop on to their blogs to find out more!
There was honestly more chatting than stitching during the weekend
but it didn't matter, we truly had a great time.
Next thing we know it was time to go back our separate ways...
Here is to look forward to another meet up with my new friends :)
