Great Postie Day... Thank You Bette!

 I'm in the center and Bette is on the right

Bette and I have been reading and enjoying each other's blog for years now!  We do have some similar tastes when it comes to stitching.  Its funny when you read someone's blog for so long, you feel like you get to know them.  This past March I was lucky enough to get to meet Bette in person!  I had gone to Southwestern Arizona to visit with Kathy for March Break.  We planned a little trip up to Phoenix/Mesa to check out the Attic.  Bette got in touch with me and we made arrangements to meet at the Attic!  We had a wonderful afternoon!  Lots of shopping, eating and gabbing, its too bad it couldn't last any longer!

Wonderful stash and a lovely note from Bette!

A short while ago Bette e-mailed me asking for my mailing address, said she had a "little something" to send me.  Well what a wonderful surprise landed for me at the General Store (this is where I pick up my mail)!  Bette sent me a Michael Powell Kit... who we both adore!  A beaded needle threader/picker, and an adorable magnetic ruler with a kitty cat!  Thank you Bette for a more than generous gift!  I didn't expect Christmas to start so early!

Its not often you get a chance to meet a fellow blogger, so if you get a chance... don't let it pass by!  It was so nice to get to meet Bette and I hope our paths will cross again!
