You know...when I started a blog, it was on a whim. I had been reading them for awhile, I had never left a comment on another person's blog, I didn't really understand the whole blogging world. I just sat down one day and opened a blog. I remember watching the Martha show one time when she did a whole segment on blogging and everyone in the audience was blogging. I just didn't get it. But I opened my blog because I wasn't scrap booking anymore and I thought this would be a way of scrap booking on the computer. I never gave any thought to making new friends. Well, the first person to comment on my blog was Brenda, from Ladybug Dreams. She found me because I actually had commented on Rebekah the City Farm Girl's blog and she followed the trail, as bloggers do. Brenda and I have been keeping in touch since.
Well, Thursday she was coming through town and she stopped for a visit. The only bad thing was there wasn't enough time. Brenda...if you have time on your way back home, call me!
We went out to eat at a new place in town that serves really good sandwiches at reasonable prices. I had never been there before, but I'll go back! The name of it is Pepperwhistles. Here she is in the cabin with the Granny Bee.
I wanted her to see where we have our stitchery events. I also took her by the mansion where we have the Winter Woolen Workshop.
Then we went by Groovy Girl Yarn store and some of the Ripple Tuesday girls were there. There's Barb, and Kathy, and Groovy Girl, and "K".
Brenda was a little overwhelmed with all of the yarn choices and so little time. I sort of over planned for the amount of time we had.
Oh and I have to show you the gifts she gave me. She made this tea pot cozy out of the bee material and she gave me this cute notepad with a beeskep on it. Sweet! When she gave it to me my mind was going 100 mph and I didn't even notice it had a beeskep on it. I'm crazy sometimes.
Anyway, thank you Brenda for stopping by and for the gifts. I hope you enjoyed your visit and please do come back.
