While at lunch with Marilyn and Gloria on the day of my arrival....(Oh Maggianos Little Italy, I have found a new favorite!!)....Gloria told me of her quilter friend Kay!
(And as an aside....it seems like so many of our photos were taken at restaurants, or while we were eating something or planning on eating something. I guess quilting and food have a lot in common, or go hand in hand, or something of that sort!)
Kay was not going to be able to make it to the guild meeting lecture or any of the classes, so we conspired to just drop by and surprise her. I was told she is a huge Quiltville fan, and makes many many many charity quilts, she is piecing on something ALL the time!
So off we go...it's a bit of a jaunt, but I know it's going to be worth it. We were giggling and chuckling the whole way on how we were going to surprise Kay and catch her unaware.
Well, wouldn't you know it?! Kay had already figured it out and was EXPECTING ME!!
Still, we had such a lovely visit, and I left feeling so inspired about what quilters can do even if we find ourselves house bound due to health issues. There is no stopping us, is there?
Kay, it was so great meeting you, visiting your lovely home, seeing ALL YOUR QUILTS!
