Quite a few months ago I met Dawn online via a few of the BB's and we found out we live quite close to eachother, about 20 mins drive away. We seemed to like a lot of the same stitching designs and mentioned meeting up sometime. Well with one thing and another we didn't arrange anything until this week, when I found out I was having the day to myself today. So we arranged to meet at a coffee shop in town and bring our wips to show and tell lol.
I was excited but also really nervous about meeting her, as I was worried we wouldn't have anything in common other than stitching. ROTFPML I needn't have worried! We didn't even discuss cross stitch for the first hour and a half, and we have loads in common. She is a lovely girl, nice and down to earth like me and we laughed loads.
We eventually did our show and tell of wips and her stitching is perfect! HAED Mystic Woods that she is stitching is gorgeous, the colours are just stunning. She also has an older wip of HAED Winter Moon and this is just beautiful (come on Dawn, don't let Mr Stick have to come find you lol). And there were also some other lovely smaller projects she's finished which I got to drool over.
So all in all I had a wonderful afternoon meeting a new friend, thanks Dawn ((hugs)), and I hope we can get together again very soon.
