Keeping Busy, Fun With Friends

The other days my friends and I got together. We're a facebook group and meet every few months. Yes, I know that facebook groups aren't known for meeting in person, but we meet. We've met in Jerusalem to eat, chat and bead. We've also gone to Netivot, Shiloh and Netanya. I haven't gotten to all the get-togethers, but I did go this week.

I noticed two friends knitting, and I thought it great.

We also ate, and we talked and we talked.

We met at the Cafe Cafe in Center 1, Jerusalem, because quite a few members of our group have come from afar, yes, much further than Shiloh. The service was good, much improved over previous visits. They let us use their special room, so we had privacy and didn't disturb the other diners.

The food was good, and the company even better.

I've followed your blog for a very long time. Wished I could join you one of these days. I'm a quilter living in Betar Illit. I don't have a car to go to Shilo to join you but I'm always thinking about you ladies. You are wonderful. I'd enjoy getting together with you in Jerusalem, next time.

Quilting Corner: A lot of us don't have cars. We just bus everywhere. Shilo is actually an easy bus ride from Jerusalem; so when I don't have a work conflict, I can go from Neve Daniel to Jerusalem to Shilo easily. Do you quilt with my amazing friend, Bryna White?

Ruti, yes, so true.
QC, Is there any chance you can organize a group from your community to come to Shiloh for Rosh Chodesh? Make a day of it! The group that met in Jerusalem is a small "secret" facebook group from all over the country. We did a day in Shiloh almost two years ago.

Hey there y'all. Great pics! what a nice feeling to be includedin not only the meeting of our "secret" group but to have pics of my hands staying busy while enjoying the visit. I hope I can make other get-togethers. It's very interesting that we are very different from other fb groups whosefriends are "virtual" friend. We want to be REAL friends! Wout meeting has had a huge impact onme and I am very grateful to all the ladies who shared their time, stories and themselves with all of us.I just wish I had more time to get to know each and every one of you!
Happy chanuka Sisters!!
