I just got back from another trip to my visit my parents on Cape Cod. While there I got the chance to meet with two friends...one old, and one new.
First off, I met Melissa Averinos of Yummy Goods blog fame. I say fame because to me she's already a celebrity in the crafty little world I love, even though her first fabric line hasn't been released yet. I mean she did go to Quilt Market after all... and really I'm fairly certain that you've been reading her blog much longer than mine. As you would imagine, she is just as lovely in person as I knew she would be. So sweet and genuine and seriously easy to talk to. And she even brought me a birthday present!
Gorgeous fabric, no?
Thank you so much, Melissa.
We chatted for a while and then went fabric shopping at Tumbleweeds. While we were there I learned to use a fun new gadget
a yo-yo maker.
I've never made yo-yos before, nor had any real desire to do so, but after seeing how easy it was and how cute it came out, I can see they may be addicting. Can you see how teeny tiny the smallest one is?
I also got to see one of my best all time friends...we've been friends since kindergarten. And, as always, Jesslyn was charismatic and really "gets me". Since we forged our friendship (egads could it be) 28 years ago on the swings...it was cute to have our little ones doing the same.
I love you, Jess.
