Making new friends, 21st century style

Pay it Forward 2011 #1
Pillow from Sue S.
West Odessa, Texas. Jan 27 2011

For dinner a couple of evenings ago, I got to meet — live and in person — a Facebook friend, Sue from Austin. We had ourselves a hoot and probably had other diners wondering about all our hand movements and outrageous laughter.

Besides having an interesting job with the Texas Historical Commission, she is quite the crafter. She calls all the knitting, sewing, basket-making, and crocheting she does, "My Other Life." I squealed when she gave me this quilted pillow cover. It was her gift as part of the game a group of us are playing in Facebook, Pay it Forward 2011 where we give one another something we make ourselves.

Cool, huh?

If you haven't "friended" me yet on Facebook yet, I hope you will.

That's a very nice pillow cover. So nice that that you had a 'face to face.' It's great when these things work out well.
