|Kindred spirits in Barbastro, Spain.|
This is Lidia. I met her in Barbastro recently while visiting the home of Saint Josemaria Escriva. She owns a shop that sells fabric and sewing and needlework materials. With my broken Spanish, and her broken English, and with the help of hand gestures, we were able to talk briefly about what we do, and made our seemingly broken conversation meaningful! She is into quilting and patchwork. She says she does not sew dresses because she's quite big. hihi. I love that while we do not speak the same language, we speak the same passion. I love that I am able to take home beautiful fabric from her shop. It was such a delight to meet her!
|Bought a yard of fabric (pink), and three quarter-sized fabric. Planning to use the three to make pouches, and the 1 yard for a beautiful skirt! It has to be a very pretty and special skirt for a 15-euro fabric! hehe|

Lidia's store is called Alfiletero de Yaya, which, in English, I believe is "Yaya's Pin Cushion." She has a Facebook page. :)
I hope to cross paths with her again someday. :)
Always thankful to meet kindred souls,
