so a few months ago, I received a message from my friend Marlene who Ive known in blogland for probably 5 years or so. she asked if she could come visit and if I would teach her to needlefelt. so of course I said yes!
plans were made and the months passed by, and suddenly it was time for her to come. she took a bus all the way from New Jersey! Quite honestly, I feel honored that she would want to travel two whole days just to spend a few hours with me.
Her bus arrived Friday afternoon a little before 5:00, we whisked her off from the Rochester bus terminal for another hour of riding in a car to the big town of Medina for Pizza and wings. Main St Medina was totally packed with kids out for beggars night. Its sort of like a pre trick or treating night when the kids hit all the area businesses! way toooo busy! anyways, a quick dinner with Marlene, my friend Sandy and my daughter and torry pie, then off we went to see the musical Les Mis. what a great show!
we got home late, had coffee, tea and applecrisp then off to lalaland! On I taught Marlene how to needlefelt. she made acorns, a pumpkin, a candycorn doll and an owl! she caught on very quickly. In the afternoon we took a little break and went for a drive to a craft antigue co-op and to the lake. then home for lasagna and salad and another visit with bethany and torry pie. Torry pie just loved Marlene, which is interesting because he takes a long time to warm up to most people.
Getting her back to the bus terminal was a little hectic the next morning. we had to leave my house at 6:00 am, but my battery was dead in my car! had to wait for hubby to get up and jump it.. then once on the expressway, the route we needed to take was closed! but we got there with 15 minutes to spare. In fact the bus was sitting there, and she got right on it! such a long trip just to visit me! but we had a fun visit and she said it was worth it! lol!
sunday I laid low and played in my craft room I made this little kitty and painted the orange pumpkin. I think Im done with halloween creating now.. Christmas is really starting to creep into my head now! LOL!
speaking of christmas, stay tuned! Im going to host a challenge.. not a swap. but an elf challenge! I'll post more about it soon!
Thats all for now folks.. Ive got the itchies.. and Im tired and heading to the couch!
