I'd better just warn you that this post is very photo heavy... You may want to grab a cuppa before you start!! Yesterday I had the most wonderful day! I spent it with lots of other bloggers at a Blogger Meet at Cleveland.
What an amazing, generous, wonderful, happy bunch of women!!!
It was such a great, fun day.. So much laughing, chatting, sharing, and did I mention.. laughing??
I can't believe we stretched our lunch out to 5 hours... and I'm very glad we didn't get kicked out for all the noise and laughing that was going on. ... Lots and lots of cameras and photo taking too... The other people around us must have thought there was someone famous at our table.. You should have seen us all taking photos.
I had met everyone there before, except for these 2 lovely ladies... Fiona (Bubz Rugz) and Michelle (Rag Tag Stitching) It was wonderful to finally meet you both in person.
We had "Show and Tell" and the quilts were just amazing. Susan's "My Favourite Things" quilt so far. I love the colours in this.
When Susan made her own "Design Wall" to show off her finished blocks..it sent us all off on another fit of laughter.
As you can see by the photos... It was a very fun day and the laughter just went on and on..
This is the gorgeous Marilyn with her "show and tell" quilt.
Fiona's version of "My Favourite Things".. Love, love, love those jeans!
How gorgeous is Susan's block... I want those shoes!
And talking about shoes... De was showing off her new shoes and I love them too!!!
Michelle's beautiful blocks... just amazing! The flowers were incredible.
Michelle, Me and my wonderful friend Helen (Thank you soooooo much for driving us out there xx)
Michelle is very talented and designs the most beautiful stitcheries... we were all very lucky to go home with 2 of her stitcheries, a sewing angel and a really cute owl.
Fiona... taking a photo of me, taking a photo of Fiona.. ha ha (With Noela and Susan)
How thoughtful and generous....
Mary (Scottish Nanna) made everyone of us a gift.. The little suits were adorable and turned into 2 tea towels? Very clever and a lovely surprise. I don't want to open mine, I want to keep it just as it is!
Mary also made this very cute doll and Cheryl was lucky enough to win it..
The food at the Grandview Hotel is really delicious and I can't help thinking this bowl of Caesar Salad is bigger than Helen!!!!
Now I took lots of photos, some of them didn't turn out (I was probably shaking too much from laughing!!) and I can't put them all up. So I'm sorry if I missed out on anyone and all the other "show and tell" quilts and I am especially sorry I didn't get any photos of Helen's "Earl Grey:" blocks.
Well, it truly was the BEST day ... and as you can see in the smiles on our faces, we all had a ball.
Thank you all so much for coming and spending the day together.. We all should have more days like this in our lives.
Thank you for your company, your laughter, your generosity, and most importantly...
Hope you are all having a very Happy Monday.
