My New Friend


Life is funny sometimes.

I am currently planning a trip to the Netherlands when I am in Europe for the European Patchwork Meeting in September.

Yesterday I was looking at my friend (and fellow SAQA Oceania Rep) Ali's blog and she mentioned Nienke in the Netherlands so I went (as you do) to her blog and after asking Google nicely to translate it for me I was entralled. We had so much in common so I wrote to her.

Well after many emails back and forth over the day we are now firm friends and it appears she has followed my blog for ages too. I was so pleased when she sent me a photo of my Aurora quilt that she had done a while ago after being inspired by mine. It's it gorgeous?

Here is her blog entry about it.

I now have a wonderful new friend in the Netherlands and we are already planning some interesting things for when I am there.

Isn't the internet a brilliant thing?
