How many of you have had the pleasure of meeting a fellow blogger in person? Well after a year of blogging I can raise my hand and say: "I have and boy was it fun!".
Juls http://afairyprincessdreams.blogspot.com/ and I discovered this past February that we live in the same city, both love to cross-stitch and even frequent the same LNS - yet we had never met. Since that time we've kept in touch via our blogs knowing that the opportunity to meet in person would certainly come.
Last week I read she planned to go to Stitchers Paradise on Thursday to choose some fabric for a new project. Since I attend the stitching get-together there on Wednesday I asked if perhaps she could come then instead. And she could!! What fun it was to finally meet one another. Let me tell you a little secret - our fairy princess doesn't just dream of stitching - she creates masterpieces. If you visit her blog and scroll down to February 21, 2007 you will see her 'Cinderella' which graces the wall of SP. It is stunning!!
Juls, it was great meeting you and I look forward to seeing you again soon.
Just a little piece of my own stitching to show. Thank you Isabelle for telling us about Maryse's patterns. So much love & care has gone into the designing of these gems and Avril was a joy to stitch. The stitching is 1/1 on 25 ct cream evenweave creating a sweet 2 1/2" square picture. Although I haven't quite decided how to finish this I do know I'll be stitching some of the other months in the near future.
Hope everyone had a good week and wish you all a wonderful weekend.
