I had a lovely day today...I met a fellow blogger, Swooze, at a local quiltshop. I had met her one other time long ago (before I came to know Blogland) at the quilt shop. I had been reading her blog and I made a post about tatting at the Senior Center. She contacted me and we got to talking. We met up today officially as fellow bloggers and went to visit three different quilt shops. I did some Christmas shopping, we had a lovely lunch at a new tea room together and shared some laughs. Lots of fun and I hope we meet up again soon and get to play together again. I had a great time.
I did do a little Christmas shopping for myself after we parted. I had been looking at the ads and did some price comparisons. I went to Wolfe Camera and bought me a new digital camera. I've been wanting and needing one for quite a while and with my new grandchild coming in December, I decided now was a good time. I am letting it charge right now and will play with it tomorrow. I'll take pictures of all the goodies I bought at the quilt shops and share my finds with you. Now, I just have to make some of those cute fabric baskets from the Pink Penguins blogsite and fill them with the goodies I bought for my quilting friend's Christmas gifts. I'll try to do those tomorrow too. Vera over at Seams to Sew and Quilt made some and used a solid fabric instead of the 2-2 1/2" squares. I think I'll do some this way and get them done a little quicker. Until next time....
