Bloggers Meeting Bloggers

I'm still around!
It has been rainy, windy, and cold
since my return to Cape Breton.
But the sun was shining today as I traveled
with fellow quilter/blogger,
Lesley, from The Cuddle Quilter,
to the most delightful little quilt show.
belongs to this quilt guild
and she had some beautiful pieces on display.
I felt so blessed to finally meet her.
Sheila gifted us each with beautiful mug rugs!
Thanks, Sheila!!
Here are Sheila and Lesley, admiring one of Sheila's wallhangings.
But, wait!  It gets even better!
Linda, from Scrapmaster,
drove up from Halifax with her family to meet us there!
Here she is showing us a new bag she made
and brought with the intentions of filling it...
and fill it, she did! 
Linda also won one of the door prizes!
After a most delightful chat over tea and treats,
we said our goodbyes, with promises to meet up again one day.
Four bloggers in one day!
Can't beat that!
When I got home, I could not wait
to share.
A special thank you to the lovely Lesley
for encouraging me to join her,
and for driving a little bit out of her way
to bring me all the way home,
safe and sound.

Sounds like you had a great time and isn't it fun to meet up with fellow bloggers. I always love seeing what other people are making and am always amazed at the talent that is out there. So glad you share such a fun day. I was so glad to see your post. Was a little worried about you and hoping that things in your neck of the world was ok. Chat with you later. Nola

It sure was fun Karen. I enjoyed myself so much. What a treat to finally meet you and spend some time.

Karen - Quilts...etc. said...

how nice to meet up with quilters - are any of them near you or will it not be a very often visit? is the weather finally improving? how is the Patchwork of the Crosses going?

Barb said...

It is so fun meeting blogging friends....and I loved hearing of the ones you met because I know of few of them from blogging.

How fun for all of you! I know exactly the feelings you experienced. It's quite remarkable to meet-up with blogger-pre-friends, isn't it? That will be you and me someday too.

It was indeed a fun day and my delight to get to meet you in person ,I think meeting up with you , Lesley and Linda and her daughter made the quilt show that much more special for me . Thanks so much for traveling such a distance to attend.
