It seems very weird to be living close enough to Branson that we can run over for a day trip.
She and I have been internet friends for years, she thinks over 20 years, but we had never met. They were going to be in Branson for a few days and she asked if Vince and I would like to come over and spend some time together. Of course!
This morning we drove over, met them at Cracker Barrel and had breakfast. Then we told our husbands to go find something to do because Marlene and I were going to Cecilia’s Samplers and Quilts & Quilts.
It was wonderful meeting Marlene after all these years. We could have talked for days! She’s been cross stitching longer than I have so I asked her a ton of questions and got great advice and links to several things I need!
I didn’t buy much at the quilt shop. I ended up with three wool applique kits, though two of them aren’t really applique. They’re a snowman and Christmas tree ornament kit that I thought Addie might enjoy making. The third kit has six or eight round snowman appliques and you string them together like garland for Christmas. I’m thinking I can make those and hang on the mantle. I bought a pattern for a tunic type top for myself and a unicorn and kitty tape measure for Addie. She always loves those kind of things. I think that’s all I bought there.
The cross stitch shop . . that deserves a post all its own! 🙂
