On Saturday Kath and I headed up to Taradale, Napier for a meet up with some stitching buddies. Anne, who is on holiday in New Zealand, and her Mum had travelled down to Hawkes Bay for the weekend, and Nicki now lives locally so it was about time we met her!
Kath, Anne, Nicki and I have been internet stitching friends for many years now and how wonderful it was to get together at Nicki's home and to meet her DH as well.
Anne gave each of us a little parcel containing some lovely fabrics and threads, each depicting our favourite colours, and one of her gorgeous fobs, thanks again Anne for your lovely gift.
Of course because we were in Taradale Kath and I popped by JJ's, a quilting, wool and stitching shop for a quick shop. I spotted lots of lovely fabrics but will wait until I visit their stall at the quilt show next month.
The afternoon just flew by, sharing stitching and crafting stories - chatting about our projects and other up and coming stitching plans, and chatting, and lots of laughing, about life in general! So much fun!
