Having met my first blogger, I really hope that I will meet lots more of you now. It was SO exciting. I was incredibly nervous and so was she. We had swapped pictures of our crochet brooches - there wasn't a crochet brooch convention going on thankfully!! - and so we knew who we were looking for. The waitress described us as being on a blind date! Goodness knows what she thought we were doing. Probably best not to think about it actually.
We sat and talked and talked and talked for literally hours. It was amazing. I don't think that I ever met anyone who can talk as much as me, and it was wonderful!!!! Those who I e-mail with though will know I can talk a lot in e-mails, and from your replies, I imagine that you can too - I hope that you do! So, who was this blogger, and how did I know that it was her you are asking.
It was Selma from Eclectic Home and Life! We decided not to photograph each other or ourselves - which I was more than a teensy big glad about as I was already wondering what the waitress thought of us as I said.... However, I knew it was her because she was wearing the cutest little Scottie Dog crochet brooch. It looks a bit like this one.
I had hoped to make something for Selma in red and white Scandinavian Style - because she is, as you will know from her a blog a lover of all things Scandinavian and Norwegian - but time had got away from me. However, I handed over, with great delight in my heart, my flower brooch that I had been wearing and asked Selma - expert crocheter that she is - not too look at the stitches too closely! I have never given anyone anything that I have crocheted before apart from a few Christmas trees two Christmasses ago.
So, if you are ever in doubt about meeting a blogger, provided you do it in a public place and tell someone where you are going and who you are meeting - just think about what you would tell your children!! - go for it I say! (you will understand what I mean here when you read Selma's post!). If you have half as much fun meeting a blogger as we did yesterday, you will not regret it for one moment! Thank you for a great time Selma!
Now I am looking forward to meeting some more people. Blogging is great fun, but it is great to talk in real life too! Any takers??
