A Fun Friday

Hello friends!  Yesterday I had the pleasure of meeting up with Vera and her friend Leslie for some lunch and socializing.  Vera doesn't have a blog but I know many of you "know" her from her comments on your blogs.  Here she is preparing to enjoy lunch at David's Restaurant in Asheboro.

After lunch, we wandered around downtown Asheboro for a bit of shopping, chatting, and just having fun.
I introduced her to the mosquitos we have here in the South:

And warned her of the dangers of runaway trains.  :o)

Isn't this mural fabulous?!  The light is a real, working light on the side of the building.

I don't know what it is about us stitchers but we always have to come together bearing gifts.  Vera gifted me with one of her fabulous knitted and felted wool bowls and this beautiful bird hook. 

And I made for her this little pillow.

I have said it before and I will say it again, there is just nothing better than fun times with friends!

My thoughts and prayers are with those of you on the east coast who are in the hurricane's path.  I hope you are all prepared and will stay safe and sound.

What fun to meet Vera in person, Myra! And your gifts for each other are both very special.

Asheville looks like a great place--that giant mosquito is a hoot!! And, oh, how I wish, I could paint like the artist of that mural--so impressive!

Enjoy your week--looks like a solid seven days of rain and gray weather for us in PA :(
