It was a good time. So glad I got to feeling well enough to meet with them. Wednesday I wasn't so sure. OMG Kathy is a quilter extraordinaire. She showed us several QOV quilts she had made, as well as many others. She also came equipped with gifties in the form of pillow cases for the kids at Cardinal Glennon. Jean is always a pleasure to get together with. She also came bearing gifts in the form of little zipper pouches. Me, I never even thought of taking gifts with me...such a scatter brain I am. It was just wonderful getting together with them.

I'm laughing. Robin and I are on the same wavelength today! I was looking at the onion rings too. You guys had lunch in a sports bar?

Well, Karen, where did you think three sporty ladies should meet up?

Kathy definitely looks like someone who needs to come back in September for the forum retreat . . . (are you listening, Kathy?)

And you want us to think that after everything you've been through recently? THIS is a DISCLAIMER!!

I have to have some excuse for my ditziness, besides just being blonde, lol. Eventually I hope I get to know which end is up again. Thinking that is going to be around the middle of May.

At first I was like... "Wait, Jean was in Hamilton"? when I read the title. But, I see now you weren't. Whew... I thought I missed something!

Glad to see you had a good time, glad Marilyn was feeling up to it. Let me know when you are passing my way. I'd love to meet up! I hope to get to St. Louis in latter April or early May... I'll look you up friend!

I get to see Monique quite often when she comes to the shop. She lives about an hour from me and she works for my sister at times at the post office. :D

You guys are lucky to live close to each other! Wish we could come up to see your store, Denis! Did I tell you I upgraded my Pfaff longarm? It is really slick now?

I'd make a trip to Ladysmith to see our Monique just so we could travel down to Renfrew to see you!!

Glad you gals met up and we knew beforehand that you all would have a super time.

It's always nice to put faces to our forum friends faces, do I have it right that in the photo it's Kathy, Marilyn (seated) and Jean and some great onion rings on the table?

We're just back from St. Louis. It was such a fun weekend for me, meeting Jean and Marilyn! During down time, I was able to do some quilty things, and finished the shop hop yesterday. One of the shops is giving away a Bernina sewing machine! I might have to go back just to pick it up... :D Lots of cool fabric, some for pillowcases, some for totes, some just because!

And the highlight of the weekend is meeting Jean and Marilyn. I'll think about the retreat. I'll need to know when and how much, and try to figure out how to get there...

I am always up for meeting forum friends. Meeting Kathy was wonderful. So talented. There are so many of you from the NYC area, or not that far....you all should have a get together. That would be so much fun. There are some more Missouri gals that we need to meet up with too. Maybe have a meet up in Columbia....that is pretty centrally located.
