Busy, Busier, Busiest!

We had a jam-packed weekend with two events on Saturday and three on Sunday. But yesterday was the best day of all!

Yesterday I finally got to meet my friend, Andrea, in person!  Here we are at the tip of Navy Pier:


Andrea and I have been "pen pals" for about a year.  We have a lot in common besides our love of sewing and knitting.  So I was pleased as punch when she and her husband decided to take a mini-vacation in Chicago before their big move out west.

We had a great time yesterday walking down the Pier, going up to the top of the Hancock building (OK, that was scary) and even getting in a little fabric shopping. Her husband was quite a trooper, waiting for us while we pawed through the silks at Vogue.

Today I'm catching up on some laundry while they take in a couple museums, then this evening the four of us will be getting together for dinner.

Have you ever finally met a person you've been corresponding with?  I was so happy to finally meet Andrea in the flesh, but because we've been writing regularly for the last year, it feels like I've known her forever!

  1. Oh my gosh, I'm so excited/jealous that you got to meet Andrea! She seems like the coolest person! I think I would burst if I met the two of you at the same time! :)

  2. Sounds like great fun! I've met a fair number of my "internet friends" in the flesh but so many more I hope to see in person one day.
