Small World

I haven't accomplished much sewing this summer, 
but I have had some quilter friends visit me and my fair city.

In June, Kathy Doughty, Liesel and Carolyn of Material Obsession in Australia arrived. 
We toured Seattle, including the Dale Chihuly Gardens, (pictured here)
before they headed north to teach.
Toodle-oo, mates!

In July, Ana Maria Perna arrived from Spain with her husband, Ruben.  
She was celebrating her 60th birthday with a tour of the Western states
and Quilters Affair in Sisters, Oregon.
Adios, amigos!

In August, Carol Veillon of Quiltmania and her husband, Jean, came from France.
They toured the Northwest on a motorcycle and stopped by my house.
Au revoir mes amis!

All were very fun visits!  I hope to see all of them again.  

As quilt-makers, we're so fortunate to have a passion that allows us to cross borders and oceans and still have so much in common with each other!

I am getting back to sewing again, and will have something to show soon.
See ya later, alligator!

I, too, love how our quilting and blogging take us places and allow us to meet people. I'm so glad I met you in Chattanooga . . . like you said, SO much fun.

Do you remember how it used to be before blogging? You have had a busy summer! Looking forward to your new and old(finishes)projects.

By the way, the image verification has gotten fun and kind of interesting. I had to choose the images of candies??? Hmmm..

Wow! What fun to have such varied visitors! I don't get much sewing done in the summer, either. A little (very little!) handwork sometimes, but that's all. Each year when summer comes, I think I will get so much done, and it never turns out that way.
