Time is always a problem for me. With my big family, job, hobbies, home and everything else I juggle I have a hard time fitting in fun things I want to do with tasks I need to do or must do. But when the opportunity rises, it is hard to say no to a quilt shop meeting with the girls. Isn't that clock stitchery above fantastic.
Last week I met my friends at Material Girls to catch up and look around at Nadine's. It is always fun to get together and look at fabric and talk about our latest projects.
Judi, Me, RaeAnn, Jodi and Lori in the back room of Material Girls. Nadine is taking the photo. Jodi came from Washington on vacation and arranged to meet us. Not pictured is Kim, who came a bit later.
We have a "terrible" habit of exchanging sweet gifts. This one is from Jodi. Jodi and I have been blog friends for more than 3 years or so but met for the first time this week.
Jodi is always full of great ideas. She is a fantastic photographer and quilter. These are cards that combine the two. At the bottom left edge of the photo is a sweet custom charm pack.
Kim is someone that does everything better than most everyone, including me. I admire her so much, and I always have.She made me this sweet bird, gave me the pattern, a treat and look at the beaded scissors charm. I love it and it has my initial on it.
RaeAnn is a sweetheart. She always makes me feel included and special.
Wonderful treats from RaeAnn. You may know RaeAnn from her other blog Stash Manicure.
Then there is Lori. Did you see her tutorial/giveaway on her blog for this great pincushion she gave me.
Thanks girls for all the gifts/treats. I love them. We are all really busy women. So time is important to all of us. But whenever we can we squeeze in a visit together, we try. Sherri is going to be in town this week so we'll see if we can swing a visit.
