Yesterday morning I headed into the city to meet Fiona from Bubz rugz who is in Melbourne for a visit.
Neither of us knew what the other looked like so it was quite funny meeting up at Flinders St station. DH and I watched intently to see who would answer a phone call and try to guess which person was Fiona. I had only ever seen a pic of her with her face blocked by a camera so I was looking out for a familiar top of her head lol. There is photographic evidence of us catching up, as there was with Teresa, a photo of the two of us with a twist. I will have to wait for Fiona to get home and send me a copy. It will definitely be worth a giggle and will show the lovely bag she gave me that she used my 'free to good home' pumpkin fabric for.
We went and got a coffee and brunch and just sat and chatted away for a few hours that went way too fast before I had to meet DH again for the trip home. I just can't get over how wonderful it is to meet blog friends in the 'flesh'. She is a really lovely person and we had lots in common. I must say I have been lucky to have met 3 blogiverse friends and it has been a joy each time.
Before Fiona left to come to Melb. she had asked if I would like some of her home felted wools, I of course said I would love some, I was overwhelmed with the huge bag that Fiona brought for me. I have a superb stash of wools now and I can make lots of goodies with felted wools! It was just wonderful to meet with Fiona. So heaps of hugs and thanks for meeting me in Melbourne Fiona!!
Meeting up with Fiona meant that I could also hand deliver the two stitcheries done by mum and myself for Helen Stubings quilts to raise money for flood victims. It was lovely to hand them over in person as Fiona was our delegated person who would be sewing the blocks into a top. They were quite enjoyable and quick to do.
Boys can be so devilish can't they! I love it .
See you soon for the Christmas item for February...Has everyone managed to get one done?
