Thanks for calling

We were spending the weekend at a caravan rally in Clareville, just north of Carterton, in the Wairarapa.  A car pulled up in the grounds and a young woman with a big beaming smile asked me “Are you Jenny?” It was fellow quilter and blog reader Helen from the Wairarapa who read that we were staying “over the hill” and called in to say hello.  What a lovely surprise!  Helen said that she felt she knew us, as she keeps up with both our caravan adventures and my quilting life through our blogs, and the pair of us had previously exchanged several e-mails.  She kindly brought some home baking, still warm from the oven, and smelling divine.  We spent a lovely time chatting, swapping stories, and getting to know each other.  Thanks so much for calling Helen.  It was so nice to finally meet you, and spend some time together.

Lovely story! Only missing is a picture of the two of you. Next time, we hope.

Thank you Linda. Helen didn't want her photo published but was quite happy for me to write about her visit.
