Okay, it's not like I have tons of stuff to say at the moment except that one of 'the other Kristas' just called and she's safely over the border (apparently the truckload of fabric she's importing for retreat tomorrow didn't draw any undue attention). So, anyway, she just called and SHE'S GOING TO BE HERE IN ABOUT HALF AN HOUR!!!!.
Tomorrow I'm running a day retreat for the Vancouver Modern Quilt Guild. Krista (known to many of you on Flickr as lolablueocean) found out and asked if she could come. She drove up from Seattle on her own and is even going to crash here. I think it might even be her first visit to Canada!
I'm posting all this right now, because I'm actually so excited I don't know what else to do for the next 30 minutes.
I suppose I could make my kids some dinner. No wait, there's more to say.
This is the view from our retreat hall!! (just so this post isn't all talk, no photo)
This is extra exciting, because when I started blogging 18 months ago, I did really, really, want to make new international friends who shared my passion. I hoped they would live all over the world (and they do), but I didn't count on getting to meet people from not-so-far-away in person. This is so great. Plus, she has a longarm, so we need to be friends for reals.
Other, other Krista (Spotted Stones) we wish you were here!!!! One day we will figure out a way to be together (get me, I sound like a soap opera). And when that day comes, it will be Wonder Krista Powers Unite! Okay, now I'm Saturday morning cartoons. And guess what, there is a fourth Krista with a K just recently discovered on Flickr...she blogs here. We're going to do something fun together I think, a Special K swap, just the four of us.
AND... all of you are amazing. Well over 350 non-arm-twisted followers!!! A giveaway is in the works my pretties. Just for you.
