Good times

I am smiling this morning.  Ear to ear. 

Yesterday, I had the good fortune to attend a small gathering of like-minded people to share our mutual love of sewing.   Carolyn hosted and she’s a great hostess (serving lasagna, garlic bread, salad, appetizers, the works!).  We shared our stories, talked about the pros and cons of blogging, shopped Carolyn’s fabric closet… 

We also all brought fabric to be donated to Carolyn’s local high school.  I brought some boucle I bought from when the Vera Wang Lavender collection went on sale a while back.  It just wasn’t what I thought it was going to be when I received it.  It was too electric blue.  But when Carolyn found out that I was going to donate it, she said no way and brought out some burgundy colored silk that paired with it and magically, the blue became more of a purple.  Weird.  So Carolyn insisted that I keep it.  I think I will give Carolyn some other fabric in my stash to donate to her local high school instead.  🙂

Karen, Cidell and Wendy were there.  I have met each of them before and hope that I can now call them my friends.  There were three others whom I have not met before: Barbara, Cindy and Lindsay T.  

The highlight of the visit had to be seeing Carolyn’s mighty stash in person.  I was so envious, I had to avert my eyes.  😉  She has some AMAZING fabrics in that closet.  Wow!

Here are some not to great pictures to memorialize the occasion.  I hope we can meet up again soon!
