Sister Stitcher

 One of the pluses of traveling is that I have seen friends that I have not seen in many years and I have met others in person from the blog community.
  My work event was Friday afternoon so I was unable to schedule a flight home until Saturday. This gave me a chance to catch up with Catherine from I Love To Stitch Blog. Catherine and I have been friends for many years through our blogs and I was thrilled to meet her.
  We had a wonderful dinner at Star of India in St. Cloud.
Good food and wonderful company!
We talked and talked. It was amazing how much we have in common.
Catherine gifted me with these sweet Shepherds Bush pieces. Thank you my friend! I hope we have another chance to get together.
 I made it home Saturday evening and got to spend a little time with Rich. I am supposed to fly out of Raliegh Durham early Tuesday morning but there is supposed to be a weather event so I will go spend the night by the airport since it is 76 miles from my home. That means I have to get packing!

Have a wonderful week!
Be safe!

Safe travels, Chris! Seems that almost everywhere it is not fit for man nor beast these days. So great you got to meet up with a blogging buddy.

Travel can't be easy during these winter months, Chris, but meeting up with friends, both old and new, certainly makes it more enjoyable! So glad you and Catherine were able to get together :)

Oh, how wonderful you could meet a bloggy friend while on the road. I look forward to meeting some of my friends I've made over the past few years - on my Bucket List.
