day 76 (Blog Crush)

So as I mentioned in a past post we had a fantastic day on Wednesday in Peterborough at the blogger meet up and tea at Michele Karch-Ackerman's show "Foundling" at the Peterborough Art Gallery.

A couple of pics from that day.

  You might recognize these ladies as they have all been been stitched these past week Me, Mel, Caren, Elycia, Astrid ,  my daughter Claire, Desiree and Carly

Well almost all have been stitched.

See the girl posed perfectly in the middle of the group? With the lovely hair that she told my daughter Claire was courtesy of pink lemonade?

I have been crushing on this girl and her blog for a long time. And then I found out that she was coming to the tea!!! I must admit I was very nervous meeting her, I fumbled words, stuttered a bit and got a bit giddy. She was so sweet and nice and funny.... just making me more of a babbling idiot. I managed to get out the words. "Do you mind if I stitch your portrait?"

and she said yes!

Thanks so much Elycia! I swear next time we meet I will be less a fool!

This is my first visit to your blog, via Elycia's. Your works are absolutely amazing, and your dedication to 365 is something I admire greatly.
I'm so excited to discover so many new blogs to follow because of this tea party!
Have a wonderful Monday, looking forward to reading more,

You are a creative rockstar. I REALLY look forward to your posts. You're inspiring me to think of a way to pass 365 days in 2012 in some other way than to 'clean something' :-) I'm really happy that you were able to hang out with other like minds irl. That is so super cool and important!
