Meeting Myra in the middle....what a treat!

**a quick edit....I know you will all want to participate in Edgar's giveaway...so go take a look..
~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~

Yesterday I had the chance to meet our blogging friend ~Myra~....I was thrilled to get to meet her in person and honestly, it felt like we had known each other forever... I quickly saw that she is down to earth, funny and very knowledgeable about anything pertaining to sewing...  Meeting at Lynne's Fabric Shop in Siler City was a perfect location~ Not only is it about the half way point distance wise for both of us, but Lynn has tons of goodies to sift through! Myra has several photos on her blog that explain...

We even swapped a couple goodies after some shopping.... Myra totally showered me with these lovelies....

Myra gave me the prettiest fabric tote to use as my lunch bag at school....I absolutely love summery shades of green and blue...perfect~! And, she had waxed up a box for me to use with my BBD finishes...Need that! And, can I just say, Myra even makes home-made lotion! Sheer talent I tell you....


This lotion has the most wonderful fragrance and it is just as cremey as you could ask for! Her buddy Betty Dekat has the"recipe" on her blog...So, go check it out~~...here...

As I drove back home (about an hour or so) I ran across scenes of rural back roads of North Carolina...It really is quite a lovely this time of year..So here are a few shots off the country roads....

 a lake with a view..


a horse drawn buggy or two for sale...


a corner antique store that has long since gone...


just a lazy drive back home through the back roads....

Needless to say, I had the best getting to know an already good friend!! Thanks Myra~

It's so pretty over there. Enjoyed the pictures. I do miss it sometimes, but I love the mountains too. When my son lived in Raleigh we had an excuse to come visit, but now he is in California. Myra is a peach, have known her from the quilting sites, and now follow her cross stitch.

Catherine said...

I could tell from Myra's post that you all had a blast! What lovely goodies she had for you and what a beautiful drive home!

Jennifer said...

Oh Faye, you live in a beautiful area of the country!

So glad you got to meet up. My first meet up felt that way too, well for me, it did....LOL
Your goodies are awesome! What a treat! thank goodness for internet to help us network with the loveliest folks out in blogland.

For some reason, I kept thinking you lived in South Carolina and then I saw North Carolina.....maybe one day we can meet up too.

hope you have a great Sunday evening...

I'm glad to hear you had such a lovely time Faye. Thank you for sharing the pictures, they're very interesting to an outsider like me, I'm all the way over in the UK! Best wishes and happy stitching to you.

Andrea said...

Great photos. I saw the shop on Myra's blog, wow fab place.

Suzanne said...

Looks like you had a great time. After looking at pictures on Myra's blog, that place looks like heaven. I think I could probably spend many hours looking through trim and buttons and ribbon.

Lynn said...

It sure looks like the two of you had a wonderful time! Myra gifted you with some lovely goodies. I can't wait to see that box all finished up.
Thanks for sharing those gorgeous pics. You live in a very lovely area judging by that drive.

Susan said...

Sounds like a wonderful trip. Isn't it amazing how easily stitchers get to know each other?
