Silver Thimbles was a lot of fun Saturday. I worked on (Dad's) airplanes. I have more propellers to stitch down, but moving furniture and cleaning closets has gotten in the way of sewing today. But I have to show you what I saw on Saturday! Thimble member, Suzanne, had a wonderful Statue of Liberty print by Hoffman. More can be found at the City Quilter website. While looking at the Hoffman site, I saw many more amazing batiks I will have to add to my stash!
I was also delighted to see my favorite bloggers! Here are Becky (A Quilting Booklady) and Gretchen (Stella Bella Quilts). They both have mischievous sparkle in their eyes and sweet charm to go with it!
Of course the number one Thimble, Pat Wys (Silver Thimble Talk), was there along with Karin (Life in the Slow Lane). Yes, Pat is crazy. All you have to do is read her blog to know that, but getting to be with her in person is priceless. Karin's blog includes my favorite blogging kitty, Wild Willy.
All four women feature WIPs and fabrics on their blogs, so I visit them in the blog-o-sphere regularly, but I relish getting to know them and spend time creating quilts together.
One last thing about the Thimbles gathering: There were cookies! Oh my, what amazing cookies! Pat made sugar cookies from The Pioneer Woman Cooks. I have to check out what other amazing food may be in that book because the sugar cookies were the best I've ever tasted.
And that was my HO, HO, whole weekend! (Back to cleaning.)
