What a fun day with Kathy A.

Several years ago Kathy A. and I met through our blogs. We knew immediately that we had a lot in common since we are both from Canada & both love to cross stitch. Then one day we discovered that we had something else in common - NUTCRACKERS. Kathy and my DH are both fervent nutcracker collectors. She and I became blogging/email friends and hoped that one day we would meet in person.

Yesterday that day finally dawned. Now you may think that anyone who comes to Las Vegas comes to gamble. I'll let you in on a secret. Las Vegas has one of the most wonderful stitching communities in the US and when Kathy planned her trip here it was to stitch and meet stitching friends.

At noon Kathy, Juls, Michelle, Brenda (a non-blogger but fabulous stitcher) and I met for lunch at Sammy's. Well you would think we had all known one another for ever. Lunch was delicious and the conversation relaxed and full of fun and laughter.

Kathy gave me this beautiful gift. I received a pouch for a stitching project with matching needle book, scissors & fob and a sweet bag to store the scissors in. Kathy, you are one talented lady. I love it all and my 'Bethlehem' project has a new home.


After lunch we went to Stitchers Paradise where met up with more of our local stitchers and talked and stitched to our hearts content.

It was such a fun day with wonderful friends.
