We came back from a mini-vacation in Wisconsin yesterday to find a package on our table addressed to Wally. Inside was this beautiful quilt:
The very cute card was inscribed, in part: “Commissioned by Paul Gibbs. Made by Andrea Rennick”. Paul and the Rennicks are a few of my friends from the WordPress and BuddyPress world, each of whom I’ve met in person exactly once. Lately there has been no shortage of reminders that online friends are the real deal; having some of that kindness directed toward me and my family brings it all home. It’s a nice reminder that our geographical distribution – Paul is in Old Blighty, and the Rennicks are in the frozen north – doesn’t change the fact that we’re real coworkers, and real friends.
As a bonus, you can check out a set of making-of photos.
Thanks, Paul, Andrea, and Ron!
