The Real Gift from Blogging

See these two good looking broads? You probably know them as PDiddly (P's Thrifty Sewing Blog) and Art Attack via their blogs and Pattern Review, but guess what? PDiddly lives in the UK and Art Attack is a Texas girl and yet here they are together. That is the gift of blogging!
Pauline's work occasionally brings her to Houston and we met last year and just clicked. (Go figure...) Tonight we had a wonderful Italian dinner and talked sewing non-stop. At one point, she was pulling down her sweater to show me the gorgeous detail on the bra she recently made. We probably raised some eyebrows but neither of us noticed as there was too much fun stuff to cram into too little time together.
What I wouldn't give to live closer so that I could help Pauline with her upcoming wedding trousseau!
We all enjoy ideas, inspiration and motivation from each other's blogs but...if you ever have the opportunity to actually meet one of your blogging whatever you can to make it happen. It is the true gift that blogging has to offer.


  1. I enjoyed hearing about your get-together. I feel as you do - blogger friends are special. Wish I could have been there!

  2. What fun! You both look great!

  3. Emm, no judgement here - but empty glasses? Well done girls, that's style! And no-one else would have been wearing what you were

  4. What fun! When are you both coming to Oz??

  5. What a lot of fun! A get-toguether! Both of you look fabulous and happy!

  6. Before I read the first word I thought - "What fun! Where are they? How did they get together!" ... and now I know! I totally agree with you in that the best part of blogging is in meeting kindred spirits.
    Now, when are you coming to South Carolina?
