This weekend was a whirlwind. Spent all of Saturday with my in-laws, convincing my mother-in-law that the hospital was a better place to be... thankfully she listened. Her situation is improving daily. On Sunday, we had the pleasure of meeting a friend from afar, Maaike from Crejjtion. I picked up a few things for her, that I thought she might enjoy.
Originally from The Netherlands, she and her husband are spending a few years in Canada. A business trip to the States brought them to Chicago, luckily. Maaike is amazingly crafty and a beautiful photographer.
What a pleasure to meet them both. The girls really enjoyed speaking with them and hearing all about their interesting lives. Newlyweds, they were both so charming.
Maaike generously presented me with the most beautiful pair of handknit wrist warmers from a pattern of her own design. Rosie was happy to try them on holding the book of stickers she received...
It was such a treat to spend an afternoon in the city. We decided we need to do it more often.
Can you believe February is almost here?
Let the Valentine 'making' commence!
