Lunch with Thimbleanna

19 comments
One of the best parts of having a blog is connecting with women like me.  I've met some wonderful women over the past 6 years.  I'm so grateful one of those talented and amazing women is Thimbleanna.  Anna's blog was one of the first few I read way back in 2006 (? has it been that long?)  We live states apart so we don't get together that often.  I was excited she was visiting Utah this summer and I am so glad our schedules meshed together.
 My daughter Shelbie went to lunch with Anna and me.  Shelbie took this picture and told me I didn't stop talking so most of the photos were crazy shots of me.  It is good Anna was focused.  I brought my London 2012 quilt to show Anna.  I was so flattered she wanted to see it.
 I have always admired Anna's bunny pincushions.  They are legendary.  This one was made especially for me as I embark on my London 2013 quilt.  Thanks so much Anna!
We had lunch at my favorite lunch eatery in Draper, Utah.  We couldn't leave without a couple matryoshka cookies.  Too cute to eat.  It was a great break for a Saturday afternoon.

How fun to meet up with Thimbleanna :)
By the way, did you ever figure out what size angle you use for the outer edge of your quilt?

Hello you little Sweetie! I'm finally just back home -- can't sleep 'cause I'm still on Utah time LOL. I had such a great time having lunch with you and Shelbie -- Thanks for the fabulous cookie and goodies (which I'll blog about soon -- sadly work is going to come first boohoo!) XOXO
