The virtual becomes real...
Not that Vicki and Cindy were actually ever virtual, but until today, I had never met either of them in person - though I feel as though I have known them both for a while, through the wonders of blogland and swapping... We met up today at Potomac Mills mall, which is a reasonable distance between where they both live and where my mother lives, and of course, it's a big outlet mall, which is kind of fun. We had lunch together, then walked around browsing a few shops before I took my girls shopping for some clothes and they headed out to Ikea. It was fun (as if you'd doubt it)!
And look what I got :) Vicki gave me some lovely hand-dyed fabric (the three pieces on the left are all from the same dye batch) and a piece of sunprinted fabric with funky buttons on it; Cindy gave me a bunch of goodies, including some earrings made of inchies, a bag of bits and my favourite thing, which is a charm made from altered Rummikub tile - I should take a more detailed photo of it - or wait - I don't have to as she has blogged about these lovelies over here. My next trip to a Michael's or JoAnn's will have to involve getting ahold of something to hang the charm on to make a necklace!
Thanks again for the goodies, ladies, and for a nice afternoon.
