I was so excited! I got to meet my friend Kim for real at last! And did we had fun 😉
I took the plane (3 in that case) and flew all the way to Idaho… and spent 4 amazing days with her and her way too cute daughter.
When I think about it, I feel like it was a dream. You see I found out she wasn’t just kind, funny, witty, and delightful to be with but also a devoted mother, a thoughtful and open minded -free-spirited kind of gal…
Have you seen all the cool media buttons just below my picture at your right?? Yep, that’s her too! I mean that woman can code! (and I can’t, boo!) She even took time to show how to make the blogroll list to the wannabe me.
I was rotten spoiled while staying there (hello vietnamese food! and girl scouts cookies! and burt’s bee skin care!), she even bought some delish gluten free breads (oh I so wish they were selling them here…)
I spent quite some time playing with that cute 2 years old girlie (I mean, the mom is vietnamese and the dad is irish… can you imagine the beautiful mix?!) and I had fun!
We went to 4 fabric stores (i’ll show you my finds later 😉 and a yarn shop….
man, why can’t we have that here?!
stuff is so expensive in Québec…
We had a blast going through every row and patting every yarn balls lol! Sure, I had to take some home!
Here’s my new 2 babies…
My heart just swoon when I saw this one! Schoppel Wolle Zauberball Lace… in rich jewels. I’ve been drooling over it on Ravelry for a long time and I was more than eager to bring one home 😉
And some Cascade Yarns Alpaca lace… love me some lace ha!
I’ll make another post for my fabric purchases… yes, plural…
We talked a lot too. The kind of conversations I love! Deep and meaningful. Open and true.
I miss her a lot…. And taking the plane (2 this time) back home was real hard.
Thanks Kim for having me over and taking such a great care of me!
