Back in 2001 a group of us that were penpals did a x stitch round robin. We finished it in about October 2001 and we decided that rather than posting them back that we should use this as an opportunity to meet up.
We were from Essex, Lincoln, Birmingham, Bradford, Newcastle so York was considered a reasonable distance and it November 2001 we all met up to hand our round robins back to each other.
We had a lovely day together it was nice and Christmasy in York with the markets there too and we all got on well.
These photos were taken outside York Minster of us all together (and some of the children) and recently I found these photos and thought they would make a lovely scrapbook page. I was pleased with the results.
I am still in contact with a couple of the people we met up with but sadly as time goes by some people stop writing. 2 of those here are very good friends of mine and we try to meet up whenever we get an opportunity no doubt you will see more pictures of the three of us as thius blog continues!
