Hanging with Rochelle from Lucky Lucille
Miss Crayola Creepy 11:51 AM meet up
It's weird to say that I met my BFF in person nine days ago, but that's what I did. During the days of Sew Colette I became aware of Rochelle and her blog Lucky Lucille and just loved her super cool style and fun personality. We first started e-mailing each other and now, years later, a day rarely goes by without us texting. We talk about sewing, dogs, cats, problems, and triumphs, but had never met in person because she lives in New York. You can imagine how excited I was when she told me she was visiting California!

Luke, Frankie (my pup) and I made a really quick trip to Oakland and got to spend Sunday morning/afternoon with Rochelle and her boyfriend Wil. We met at Actual Cafe, shopped for pretty yarns and fabric at A Verb For Keeping Warm, and ended our adventure at Stonemountain and Daughter Fabrics.

Stonemountain had some good options for the Cat Lady Sewing Challenge!
Rochelle is just as amazing in person as you would think. And yes, the shirt she is wearing is flawlessly made. I think an East Coast trip is in order because now that we've hung out there is no way I'm not going to see her again! New York meetup anyone? :)
