International Crochet Day and a Thank You!

Last Saturday a friend and I joined other ladies at the Sadu House to celebrate International Crochet day!  


 I made my way around the room checking out what the others were up to.  
 The best part was meeting two ladies from Instagram whom I had not met in person before.
And a huge thank you to lovely blog friend, Meredith at Mereknits, who sent me two crochet books all the way from Florida.  It's always a blessing to receive mail on this side of the world.  And a miracle when it arrives safely.  Thank you so much Meredith.  Your package and card really made my day!
Have a wonderful weekend!

How did I miss International Crochet Day? LOL! It looks like a great group there in your picture and look at all those interesting projects and colors. What a fun get together.

This looks like such a fun day! And meeting new friends-the best. I personally think Meredith is an angel in disguise. With all she has going on she never fails to think of other people. I wish I could meet you two with "skin on" like I do Taci, Gracie and Teresa. We would have such fun!
Blessings,
Betsy
