|Beautiful drive to my special meeting.|
|We met at the Boulangerie-Patisserie in Morgins to the left behind the cheerful chalet wit red shutters.|
|Happy crochet girls: Me and Heike!|
|Heike's project for the day. Love the pattern she gets using this "magic" sock yarn. I could do that!|
|Girls just want to have fun! Julie, me and Heike.|
|My project of the day - circles. I'll tell you more later.|
It is funny how it feels like you have known each other forever although you meet for the first time. That is the magic with blogs I guess. You get to know each other through stories and pictures online and when you finally meet you just feel like you are meeting an old friend. With that experience in mind I now have a better understanding of online dating...
It was exactly the same that time I met with Maaike from CreJJtion during her Create & Date event in Amsterdam a couple of years ago. Meeting with people who shares your passion for crochet is truly something special. A new friendship has now been deepened and I am sure Heike and I will meet many more times in the future. An invitation to her home in Wales is now topping my list on mini trips I would like to do in the future. Maybe even attending one of her fabulous knitting workshops. That would be fantastic.
Yes, we truly had a wonderful day with sunshine and all. Just look at the beautiful surroundings and the cute mountain cabins. I try not to think of the terrible airplane crash that happened just a few mountain passes away... But it is hard not to do so. I'll express my thoughts about that in another blog post I think, to avoid taking away to much of the shine in this very special meeting.
Thank you for coming to see me Heike and Julie. Give me a shout next time you are in the chalet. :)
