Arriving home last evening.....it was as though I had brought the arcade with me...There were smiles to be had in every corner of my home last night as I got to hug.....a very special someone and her family! Who?................In looking at the pic I think we may be sisters!....
a blog friend became a "REAL" friend and the night was amazing! Head over to Peasinapod.typepad.com and FEAST your eyes on our fun!
The connections were so amazing that very little quilting was discussed but the art of our grandmothers, tatting, knitting and the purrrrr of Janome's opposed to Vikings were conversatonal "pieces"....Of course I was in heaven having a sweet little girl in my home that I could be an "Auntie" too...I never pass up the oppurtunity!
The ironwork in the Trump dining area is such a mirror of a favorite quilting design of Green Fairy's and I could not help but take a pic and send to her and thought, "HOW FUN TO HAVE JUDI JOIN ME AND SEAN FOR BREAKFAST!"
Last year Judi and I happened to be at the Haunted Masion ride in Disneyland at the same time and I remember her telling me that she was getting quilting ideas from the ironwork on the mansion.....I love remembering details of exchanges I have had with friends! Makes life so interesing and a reminder of loved ones when you are not with them!!!
Mom and I had a lovely trip to Quiltique in Henderson. The store is amazing!!!!!! Above are some fabrics I fell in love with and used the hotel floor as a design board as I played around with a floral project....Just the beginning and I love the simplicity of it. I now choose fabrics with the quilting in mind....this outer border will be fabulous in pebbling the brown and having the butterflies POP!
Happy Monday and may you find a SMILE DISPENSER in your moments of your MONDAY!
