Cathy and I are both members of several yahoo charity stitching groups. When I learned she lived in southern California, I contacted her about meeting in person. I had to go to Orange County in August, but she had to be in Las Vegas at that time, so we missed an opportunity. She's visited my blog several times, and saw last week that I was coming to the OC again for a conference, and planned to stop at Needlepoints Ltd. She got off work early, and we spent almost 2 hours shopping together and chatting. Here we are showing off our full bags of stash!
