Guess who I met? and personal pics

The other day on FB, a fellow Island Batik Ambassador and EQ artist – Marlene from kissed quilts, posted something about a museum in NC! I knew she was from Washington, so seeing something from NC I commented right away and found out she was within an hour from me, so we arranged to meet a few days later (yesterday)

If it wasn’t for my schedule, I could have met her at spoonflower in Durham and toured the place too, but her and her husband did it and then heading out to my place afterwards.

We had a nice talk about different quilty things and of course took some pics too!

It was great to meet you Marlene!! Let’s connect next time you’re near here too…..

Sonja fell asleep with a fancy dress on in daddy’s office almost on top of his bass guitar, I thought it was a cute picture.

This week too, from Monday until today my friend Nancy (and her aunt Nancy) from FL visited again.

The moment they stepped into the house on Monday, Nancy started cooking and our fridge is stuffed to the brim now with dishes for about a week!

Last night we did a bon fire outside and toasted smores, hubby had to get the fire REALLY going with a leaf blower! LOL- such a guy…

While Nancy cooked AND cleaned, I embroidered about 16 aprons for her for her business for trade shows.

They also got us gifts, one was a 3D puzzle with LED lights for Bjorn, and other things for the kids and stockings for all of us.
