a VERY nifty visit to Seattle! My smile says it all!!!!!!!

There are so many emotions that I have been experiencing this morning as I arrived to work after spending 5 of the most wonderFULL days in my life in Seattle with my boys.

The smile below says it all!!!!!


Can u imagine my delight when I was blessed with a lovely evening of CELEBRATING with LeeAnn at http://NiftyQuilts.blogspot.com and her husband, and being showered with kisses by Malti. I was like a giddy schoolgirl all day counting the hours until dinner and we could punch in her address and go on a scavenger hunt with the end goal of a dear woman and her quilts! A night to remember and such a gift to cross into REAL life being with her. Visit her current post to admire and ooh la la over her finishes. She is....a marvel. She took this photo of me and it was fun to listen and watch as she talked about how the GRATITUDE quilt began, inspiration from Tonya the Unruly Quilter and future zippie's of words that she and I can play with when I return to visit...Life is so fun when Blogland becomes a matchmaker!

Love, Em

I love that you squint when you smile. So do I! That's how I can tell my twin sister and I apart in photos when we are younger - I am the squinty smiler! I'm so excited that you got to meet LeeAnn. My day is coming, I just KNOW it is!

OH EM! How I wish I could have been there with you girls. I know exactly what a wonderful time you had playing with Leeann in her jammed packed quilty studio world. You look beautiful and the Gratitude quilt is the perfect backdrop for your personality. You both SHINE. Wouldn't it be wonderful to have all the bloggies together in the same room. One day soon, I am certain, as Vesuviusmama says!

you look so cute! isn't it amazing to see all of nifty's quilts in person? love them so much. and yet I still have a hard time using some of those ghastly vintage fabrics and yet they're what give her quilts such vitality. I wish I could have a month-long retreat in Seattle.
