Sweet Encounter

Today I met with a friend for lunch. Lots of us meet with friends I know, but this meeting was extra special for me as I met face to face, for the first time, an online friend. We met through a doll group first then started emailing and eventually phone calls. We both have 4 children around similar ages, we are around the same age, we love crafts and a whole lot of other things in common. Coryn used to live in Melbourne but is now living in Hobart. We met today in Campbell Town, half way point for us both, had lunch and a short stroll around some antique stores until I had to head home to pick up the children. I had the best time. The conversation flowed so easily but the time went soooo quickly. It was decided that we will definitely be meeting again.

And we both had the same idea of giving a gift. Coryn bought me some fabric and A Janelle Wind pattern. The fabric is beautiful and I love the bag pattern. I even like the wrapping paper. I will find a use for that too I am sure.
Thanks for a lovely day Coryn. Looking forward to the next one.
Bye for now
Jules
