Last year I stumbled across the wonderful world of Girls Who Sew And Blog. (I think it’s wonderful enough that it deserves capitalisation, don’t you?) I found (and followed) a whole lot of blogs, joined in the Sew Weekly Sewing Circle community, learnt a heck of a lot, got re-inspired with my own sewing, and made a bunch of new friends. It was a bit of a life-changing discovery for me, when I think about it…..
One of the girls I got to be friends with through the Sew Weekly Sewing Circle is the lovely Trish, who blogs over at Quiet Vintage Sewing. Trish is a former Kiwi, now living in Aussie, and loves vintage styles. If you haven’t found her blog yet, you should go and have a look – she makes some gorgeous creations, and every so often treats us to some photos of her house and/or vintage treasures.
I was pretty excited late last year when I got an email from Trish – she was coming over to New Zealand over Christmas, and wondered if I’d like to meet up. Of course I would!! My first ever blogger meet-up, how exciting is that?!?
We caught up one early evening in mid January (yes, I’m a bit late with posting this) over tea, then went for a wander along the Wellington waterfront. It was one of the few real days of summer we’ve had in Wellington this year, with gorgeous blue skies and lovely sunshine, so we made the most of it and indulged in some gelato. Yum!
Completely unintentionally, we both wore pink, and red shoes. (Self-made pink outfits, naturally.) Isn’t Trish’s dress gorgeous? I love the asymmetric neckline and the different directions of the stripes.
Thanks for a lovely evening Trish, it was so lovely to meet you! 🙂
