View Full Version : only 10 days! I can't contain myself....

April 9th, 2015, 01:10 AM
Only 10 days until I am at M*QC and get to meet (drum roll please....) Sandy Navas! I have loved this woman since I met her here on the forum. Love her humor, her quilts, etc. I am very happy to finally get a chance to give her a big Cailfornia hug when I see her. And then, hopefully, I will get to meet Jenny as well. This is the icing on the cake, people, and I can't wait. Gonna shop, gonna hug, gonna talk, gonna enjoy every minute!

April 9th, 2015, 02:03 AM
I hope you have a wonderful time together.

April 9th, 2015, 02:20 AM
Can't blame you for being so excited. Who wouldn't be excited about going to M*, meeting our Sandy and possibly Jenny. Just know you will have a super time.

April 9th, 2015, 02:29 AM
What a great time you will have! Give Sandy a big hug from me.

You couldn't be going on a better weekend. There will be so much to do.
I think all forum members should wear name tags to be recognizable!

April 9th, 2015, 11:25 AM
Color me green! Hugs to everyone!

April 9th, 2015, 11:31 AM
I will be up there on Friday, April 17, and have tickets to the trunk show. I'm so looking forward to it. If there are any other forum members going - I would thrilled to meet up with you!!

April 9th, 2015, 02:00 PM
I am so excited for you. You are going to love Sandy even more after you meet her in person, and get a big bear hug. I hope Jenny will be there so you can meet her as well. Have a wonderful time. ( I know you will )

April 9th, 2015, 02:36 PM

Tomorrow is the day! I don't think I will sleep tonight. Finally got rid of the boss. Conference ended today and he insisted on a drive. A drive that lasted 8 hours! OMG! Finally had a moment to give Sandy a call and leave a msg I will be there tomorrow. Whoo Hoo!!!!!!!

April 18th, 2015, 05:45 AM
Okay, Megan! Your big day is here for us already! Make sure you fill us in on your adventure at MSQC. I live vicariously through all who are lucky enough to visit there.

April 18th, 2015, 12:16 PM
Have a great time Megan and Sandy! We'll be expecting a full report later. LOL!

April 18th, 2015, 07:17 PM
I have been to heaven, truly! drove into town and there were people everywhere looking at cars, coming in and out of the various stores. Ran into Al immediately and he is just as nice as can be. Jenny can be a proud mom; her children are awesome. Spotted Jenny across the street and walked over to say hello. It was a true pleasure to meet her. When she learned my name, she said Sandy is over there waiting for you. Turned around and there was Sandy. Big hugs, hellos, how are you's and then she gave me a tour of the town. What a wonderful thing Hamilton is now. Each store is unique and the eye candy to die for! I was on total overload. Got to see the Retreat center and meet Bernice as well. Very sweet gal and I am very happy to have met her too. The batik store is dangerous. I could live in there. Then got to see two more buildings being renovated. The town is a hopping! So wish the DH had been with me to see the old cars. He would have really enjoyed it. Then off lunch to get to know Al and Sandy better at the Blue Sage. Can you say YUM!!!!! Left earlier than I wanted cuz of the storm that was brewing, but had the best time ever! Thank you Sandy and Al - hugs!!!! Thank you Doan Family!!!!!

Megan I am so glad to have finally got to meet you, what a pleasure. I am just sorry that the place was so busy that I did not get a chance to really get to visit with you. Hope you enjoyed your visit and that you can come back real soon.

April 18th, 2015, 07:30 PM
Yay Megan...........so happy for you! Wish I could have been there too! So did you'll take pictures?? :D

Got to spend most of the day with BellasQuilts today. Met up briefly with bratbear and got to see the Doan bunch. BTW Ezra says he has no idea how to use thread. That, after his wonderful tutorial.

Al took pictures, so they will be forthcoming - when his feet get back on the ground.

It sure is nice to see your smiling faces, ladies. Megan - by the HUGE grin on your face I'd say you are having more than a splendid time in Missouri! I'm so happy you had the chance to get together. Did you set a budget for shopping or just throw all caution to the wind? hahaha

April 19th, 2015, 10:44 AM
I went up on Friday and got to meet Simply Quilting. Then went to Jenny's trunk show. Had a great time!!
