Chance meeting of strangers.................

Shopping is not one of my most favourite activities. Today we had a number of mundane chores to see to, and as a highlight I popped into a famous bookstore (beginning with B) at our local shopping centre.
So am pleased to say Sara ... I have the bought the book we were discussing on Skype yesterday. Shall start reading it tonight... have you had yours delivered yet?

I also wanted to peruse the textiley magazines... had a look at Fibre Arts, and Surface Design... but put them back after a lot of soul searching....... went in search of Quilting Arts .... just in case.... but will probably have to subscribe to get my mitts on that magazine..... then ...... I noticed that another customer was looking at the same mags as I was, so that was how I met Jackie...... hi Jackie....

We had a really good chat, lovely to meet a fellow stitcher and dabbler in fibre. I ended up buying Stitch, a magazine I usually subscribe to ..... but which I had allowed to lapse.

Have been pasting muslin onto the back of my drawings today, so that I can stitch into them.... nothing to photograph yet, they are still drying. May take a little while, it is so damp today..... and you will never guess..... yes its pouring with rain. Weather man was wrong ..... again!
