Visiting Val

Val of Yarni Gras and I have been blog friends for a while and were able to meet 2 years ago when we took our oldest son to college.
This time we got to meet her new furbaby Osa, who was a little shy at first,

but after a few visits and a walk, we were the best of friends.
 Val is a fantastic cook
and all around crafter.
We met at Starbucks for a little charity crochet which resulted in several hats being donated to @hookinforacure.  Sydney is working on her Girl Scout Gold Award and would like to collect 2,000 hats by the end of the year (sizes 12 months, 18 months, toddler, child, teens).
Donations go to children with cancer in Minnesota hospitals, so if you crochet or knit and would like to donate, you can send the hats to:
Gold Award Sydney
1058 Roma Avenue
Roseville, MN 55113

Thanks Val for your friendship and hospitality.
Hugs and blessings,

Such a wonderful time spent with a friend and a wonderful project too. I'm glad you were able to meet up with bloggy friends on your visit too Tammy. I think it's so much fun when I see the girls in Oregon.

How nice to meet a blogging friend! The Gold Award project looks like a great one. I also have my Girl Scout Gold Award. My project was a collection drive to benefit a home for abused women and their children. I wish I'd known more about crochet then, I could have made something for them too. Hope you have a good week, Tammy.

I think it would be great to meet any of my bloggy friends. So glad you were able to meet up with Val again. I like the charity thing. I'll try to help. Depends on these silly hands of mine. :)

Getting together with good friends and food is always a joy. Does Sydney have a pattern for the charity hats? I could try to crochet a few. Blessings...

How perfectly lovely that you and Val were able to meet up like this. The hats you made are such pretty colors and my hats off to Sydney for organizing the project for such a wonderful cause.
Val's meal does indeed look scrumptious and the sentiment on the napkin made me smile.

Hi Tammy ~ Loved the shadow picture and all the rest of them two. And those little caps...adorable. I plan to use your Happy Hour quote in my Art Journal if you don't mind.

Sending love and hugs.

Sounds like a whirlwind trip you did. Were you in WA state or DC? If you were here in WA I hope the fires and smoke didn't get to you. I worry it will never end.

Hi Tammy - just read your last few blog posts. I saw lots of your photos on IG of your trip, but it was nice to see more of them here on your blog and read the stories about your friends and the places you got to visit. I would love to travel out west someday like you did...wow, what beautiful country.

So happy you got to meet Val, too. It must be such fun for you to come back stateside and meet friends, both online and off. Maybe some day we will meet, too! In the meantime, I love our blog friendship. Susan

What a wonderful meet-up!!! I love when that happens - SO much to catch up on here, since I've been gone. Saw your note - glad you got back to CO this summer...we will compare notes. I trekked through some spots I hadn't been in years. Looking forward to reading more here, in the next few days. Love to you, my friend - XOXO

Osa has the sweetest little face Tammy. It was nice that you could meet up again with Val and spend a little time crocheting for a great cause. The hats are darling.

Have a wonderful week and thanks so much for the Happy Hour quote---love it!
much love...

Thanks for the intro to your blogging friend, I'm so glad you had a good visit and enjoyed time crocheting for a good cause at Star Bucks :) I met a couple of times at a local Star Bucks with some ladies who are crocheting or knitting premie blankets for the babies at a local neonatal unit...a fun place to meet!
