Meeting friends

One of the joys of participating in internet-based groups is getting to know like-minded friends from all over the world, and better still, meeting up with them in person from time to time.

Today, I met Nadine Fenton, artist, list-friend and author of the Knitting with a Poodle blog, between Ottawa and Montreal in what she described wonderfully as "the largest log cabin in the world"!

Nadine is a talented jewellery designer and makes the most exquisite rings, bracelets and necklaces using textile techniques in metal and semi precious stones. Her work is absolutely stunning - beautifully finished and about to be shown in some very prestigious places! I felt very privileged to see some of her newest pieces up close and can only say that however good her photographs on the website are, in reality the pieces are even better!


We enjoyed company for lunch in the form of our husbands, Mark and Todd, both of whom had chosen to wear their hand-knit socks today and modelled them with pride!

A really super day...pity we can't do it more often!
