I met Lillie for the first time for lunch yesterday. It was an experience for me as I've never met anyone from my board before. It was kinda like a 'blind date' really. Somehow I could recognize her from the car she drove, it was on her blog ;) and her daughter, she was featured on her blog too.
Lillie showed me some exchanges she's participated in, it's supposed to be an appetiser to our thosai and teh tarik lunch! Needle rolls, biscornus, needle books, mail arts...lovely pieces of work from all over the world and locally. Since I was coming from an appointment. I had nothing to show :( Maybe next time.
Lillie even suprised me with a box of goodies, buttons, ribbons, flosses, and a wonderful piece of stitched Christmas ornament. Thank you so much Lillie!
We chatted about crafts and some local LNS nearby and Lillie was giving me some beading tips. We had a nice simple lunch and Lillie and her daughter Dianne's company made it real special.
