Meeting Friends


Yesterday I had the pleasure to meet one of my C-R-A-F-T Yahoo Group friends: Jenny Hall from New Zealand. What a lovely lady. One of her reason's to visit Long Beach was to go to the International Quilt Festival. Jenny stayed at the Hyatt next door to the convention center and I met up with her about 11:00 AM on Monday. Sadly, we only had a short two-hour visit. However, we had a great time. We met and had a cup of coffee and I drove her to the Los Angeles Airport where she was heading to meet her two oldest children who are currently living in London. The world has become such a small place especially with the advent of the Internet and all the on-line groups. I have been able to meet and visit with Yahoo Group friends from Switzerland, Australia, Washington, Virginia and now New Zealand. If I missed any, forgive me. I have mentalpause. I hope I get to meet many more of you.

Sounds like the two of you chatted up a storm in the two hours though! lol It was great that you could meet up with her. How small does the world seem now we have the internet and on line groups? Hugs Naomi

That is so neat that you got to meet Jenny from the other side of the world. She is talented too. She was my advent partner a couple years ago! Got some lovely handmade items!
