I met up with another blogger!
It was a little daunting meeting someone you don't actually know, but at the same time you do know quite a bit about them and they know just as much about you!
But there was no need to have been nervous as it was all good fun and she was just completely lovely.
Clare and I live relatively near each other and arranged to meet up so she could share her new crochet talents with me. Clare has recently learnt this fabulous craft and very kindly said she would show me the basics.
And Clare very generously bought me along a handmade gift.
Isn't it wonderful? My very own snowflake. I love it!
Thank you again Clare. I have been practising my chain stitch you'll be pleased to know.
Yesterday I went across the Solent to visit my oldest friend.
We've been friends since 1980, which seems a very long time ago in some respects and in others it's just like it was yesterday.
We had a brief wander around Cowes before heading back to her home for tea, cake and chat.
If anyone is going over to the Isle of Wight I can highly recommend Grace's bakery which you see as soon as you leave the high speed terminal and also this shop is a must. Lots of scrummy things for sale. And yes I did buy something. 2 birthday gifts and a little something for me but the photos of that were awful so it'll have to wait for another day.
New ones and old ones alike.
