Virtual friends materialized on my kitchen table

Today I went to the doctor and had an injection in my knee. It feels kind of awful and hurts half the day afterwards, and I am every time horrified to go there, but it really helps for the ache and pain for a long time. Today I just need to take it easy and not run up and down the stairs all the time. This scary and unpleasant day was rescued by this lovely mail I got from Ewa-Christine as a swap for the white silk spools I sent her last week. She really is challenging me out of my comfort zone to try something new, and now I have the material for it right here.


And last week the horrible weather day was rescued by this lovely mail from another blog friend, Karen. You can see better pictures in her blog.





It is wonderful to have found new friends at this age, friends who may live on the other side of the world, but still seem to be just a click away. It is very exciting to read and see pictures of the creative process of talented people. Very often I don't know how to comment, but I return to my favourite blogs almost daily. It is possible to find so many "kindred spirits" and writers who share the same interests. I learn a lot by seeing other people's work, and sometimes I just enjoy what I see.
Next time I try to show something new I have made, today I just wanted to share this with you.
