Blog Friends!

Mother's Day ended on a very happy note - I had my first "blog friend meet". I had a wonderful evening & dinner with Nan of Quilting in DoxieLand. She's as delightful in person as she is on her blog and I can't believe how much alike we are - very scary. However, we definitely do not look alike - she's tall and slim and I'm short and fluffy. LOL You have no idea how nervous I was about meeting Nan - not because of Nan but because I actually prefer to remain a mystery (you'll never see pictures of me on my blog). We had a wonderful dinner, lots of giggles and laughs and then the evening was over. Sigh! Hopefully, someday we'll get to spend alot more time together.

A couple of weeks ago I received a sweet package from Cheryl at Polka Dots and Rickrack. She made this Ditty Bag especially for me - woohoo! Isn't it adorable? The pattern is by Monica of Happy Zombie. Cheryl, thank you so much!!!!

I have finally managed to do a little sewing for me. Working on my Prairie Paisley blocks but I won't bore you with more pictures of that project. I'll wait till the entire quilt top is done.

I hope your Mother's Day was fabulous and that you're having a wonderful week. Thank you for visiting - come again!

In Friendship!

How nice that you got to meet a fellow blogger. Are you going to get together again?
And how lucky you are to get that nice gift. What are you going to tuck in the ditty bag?

That is so neat! I met a fellow blogger in March and it was great! I'm curious where you met, with one of you living in Washington & the other in Arizona!

Isn't it fun to meet fellow bloggers? I've met a couple and hope to meet more.

Your bag is adorable.

Elaine Adair said...

No picture of YOU? EVER? Wahhhhh .. fluffy? 8-) Wellllll, just be that way. 8-( ... now you will forever be a mystery.

Funny - some days I want to be incognito, others, I want to be out there for the world!

Lovely gifts. The bag gives me some new ideas. Thanks

Wendy said...

That was a real treat to meet a blogging friend for the first time. And a gift from another sweet person, how fun!

Ginger Patches said...

Oh how fun for you to have a "blog meet". I'm just a teensy bit jealous of Nan (I will have to check out her blog I don't think I've been there)getting to meet and hang out with MY big sis :) What a sweet thing for Cheryl to send you!

Cheryl said...

I am a little fluffy also!! I love that title. How fun you got to meet Nan. I can only imagine all the laughing!

atet said...

Blog friends can be some of the best -- and I can't imagine Nan being anything but warm, kind and sweet. Sounds like you had a lovely day!

Thimbleanna said...

How exciting -- you got to meet Nan!!! I'm totally with you on the remaining anonymous (or was that mysterious???)

Rhonda said...

Isn't it great when blogger friends meet and really click. Quilters are the nicest people you'll ever meet.

Ravenhill said...

The bag is so pretty - such a lovely gift! How nice to meet another blogger in the flesh. I have a few times now and it has been simply wonderful each and every time!

How exciting to meet Nanna Jamma!!! I wanna meet her too. Oh and I wanna meet you too. Maybe on one of my AZ trips we'll make that happen.

Mar said...

Lucky you and Lucky Nan! good to hear you had fun! And I adore that bag!!

I'm camera shy too. I just think the mistique is way better than the real thing.

Ah, a kindred spirit! I blogged for over a year before I posted my photo and then I then I waited for quilter stalkers to get me..ha ha. I've had a few odd e's from time to time, and more than a few comments I should have deleted AND I met...for the first time...4 other Oregon quilters at Marathon Cher's home in Portland this April...see my April 21 post for 4 of the 5 of our photos ;) We had fun, but yes...you have to 'brave up' to 'face up' to online friends! And then you end up having such fun!!! Good for you, Darlene!!!

Kim said...

You met NAN and you guys didn't invite me?! ARGH! Sounds like you had a wonderful time! I'm with you on the anonymous thing--I bet you and I could pass each other on the street and never know! ROFLOL!

Nan said...

We did have a very short, but very fun time didn't we, my bloggy twin? I agree - we absolutely MUST get together again soon!
Love the bag that Cheryl sent you - how sweet of her! Blogland friends are the BEST!!
