We have finally arrived in Delaware! We actually arrived the middle of last week and we're in sort of limbo for a couple more weeks until the house on base will be vacated and ready for us to move in. So we're "temp-ing" for just a bit longer. I sure will be glad to have a house again and make it our home for the next two years. In the meantime, I don't have a lot of responsiblity (like housework!), so I'm working on some embroidery projects and taking advantage of some relaxation time!
One exciting thing I was able to do just today...I met a blogging friend!! Pat and I have been corresponding for over two years through our blogs. We moved our son out to northern Delaware two years ago for school, and she was so kind to us then, offering whatever help we needed. I thought that was thoughtful and very generous! When I found out I would be moving close to her, we knew we just had to meet!! We arranged to meet for lunch and hit it off right away! She is a sweet lady and instant friend. Quilters are the best, aren't they? We spent a couple hours just chatting and getting to know each other better...even though it felt like we already knew each other, didn't it, Pat? I'm looking forward to many more fun times with her during our time in Delaware!
Pat was so kind and brought me a "Welcome to Delaware" gift...she was even concerned that I wouldn't have anything to keep me occupied during this time of "limbo," she brought me a cross-stitch project, complete with a hoop. The saying on that cross-stitch is very appropriate..."It's all about the Journey." Thanks so much Pat! Do you see that paper on the left? It's a list of all the quilt shops in the area, typed with descriptions and directions!! How cool is that?? Now I can just hop in the car, program the TomTom and go fabric shopping! :) She knows me so well too...look at that charm pack of my very fave fabric!! LOL
Thanks for a great afternoon Pat!
