Friends from Across the Pond

My internet friend Mary arrived the other night to stay with me three nights before heading out to Sisters.  We've swapped blocks for several years now, but this is the first time we've met.

And she's just wonderful.  As anticipated.

She came with our other internet friend, Judi, who has come to the US before, and stayed with my sister several times.  She's a lot of fun.

Both women are so generous.  Judi has some project/technique that she's going to teach to our hand-sewing group  that is having a special meeting on Thursday.  And Mary brought me these wonderful African indigo fabrics and a copy of a British quilting magazine that features an article that she wrote!  Isn't that block terrific?  Can't you just see it made in batiks?  I certainly can.  And probably will.  Very soon.

Ooooohhh... I have several bundles of Indigo fabrics and have been hoarding them away for years, I still don't know what they will become.

I do love that block pictured.

What fun... getting to meet imaginary Internet buddies IRL...

Will we ever know? Sigh.
