Firstly thank you for all your comment on Beths card, she will be so made up with them when I show her tomorrow.
Tonight I am just going to show you photographs of Patricia and I meeting with Jess Watson and Norah McPhee, they don't have blogs but both comment on Sue Wilsons and I think a few others including Patricia and mine.  We have met once before which was as long as today's - over 4 hours, again we all said we should have brought cushions with us. We met at Stirling Mills store resturant.  Oh the staff and customers must have wondered what was going on with all the laughing and chattering that's was going on.

Jess, Patricia, Norah and myself

Patricia with Norah, in the foreground next to the cup is the box Patricia had made and filled with goodies 

Now this is the stunning card made by Norah, whom we had to tell off as she kept saying she wasn't as good as the rest of us.  Believe you me its is far better than I can make. It was so beautifully made. 
She has written a beautiful message inside, but Norah's writing is so small that it wouldn't show up if I photographed it. 

I was going to wait to show these photographs but I just wanted to let it be seen that, if you get asked to meet up with another crafter that you chat to on there or yours blogs, go for it as I have to say Patricia and I have met up and made so many lovely friends by just saying " yes let's do it" 

Well that's it for just now, I have made a few cards over the last few days but until they are sent and received I can't show them.

    Norah said she made them in "yellow" that's the colour of "friendship" how sweet is that.
