That day was today. She and I met for a late breakfast at Bob Evans ... eating and drinking coffee and chatting for a couple of hours, until the lunch rush began and we felt a little weird continuing to sit there and hog the table.
Our next stop was across the street at Home Goods, to do some Christmas damage. Both of us did a lot more looking than buying, but we each came away with some gifts for others and treasures for ourselves.
(I didn't buy any of the stuff in these photos ... it's just filler.)
I did love this vase, though!
When we finished at Home Goods, we said goodbye, promising to keep in touch. It was a really great time!
My next stop was Ikea. I had a list to kill, and little time to do it. (Ikea on a time constraint is torture!) First stop, the fabric department. I wanted to find fabric to make pillow covers, and Ikea has some great designs. This one was my favorite, but they were out of it ... grrrr.
By the time I checked everything off my list, my cart was full of fabric and feather pillow forms ... towels and storage baskets ... and a shelf clock.
Filler photo again ... I liked this, but didn't buy it.
The baskets are for my sewing room. The towels will look great in our downstairs bathroom. The fabric and pillow forms will be assembled and will end up as merchandise in my booth.
"Hey, Connie", you say, "Aren't you nervous that some day one of these bloggy blind dates of yours will turn out to be an axe murderer?" Not at all. Everyone I have met so far has been just as lovely in person as they seem online.
Deborah, today was a lot of fun. Let's DEFINITELY plan to do it again.
