If you ever have the chance to meet an online friend in person – please don’t pass it up. Today I met Cecile (and her husband and son) at a local coffee shop and had the best time. I got to see one of her quilts and a knitted scarf and sweater she’d made for her son. She even gave me some knitting pointers so if I can manage to retrain myself – I might actually knit a bit faster.
Tomorrow, I’m going to meet Suzanne for lunch at the Mall of America too. Keith is amazed that I actually have 2 social events planned in two days.
I had a great walk this afternoon to and from the coffee shop and when I got home, I had postcards in the mailbox from our family exchange. Usually we just exchange one card per month but for December we made it optional to make and send cards to everyone. This first one is from my Aunt and the second one is from my sister, Deb.
I also decided to remake the two postcards I wasn’t happy with, using the split background and the embroidery stitches in the snow since I was so pleased with how the snowflake card turned out.
