Making Friends

Today, Mary Jo and I, who are both in QDU (Quilting Down Under) chat group met in real time, something that doesn't frequently happen in blogland.

She's a lovely person, and very easy to talk with. Being quilters and mothers, it was no problem at all finding a couple mutually interesting topics!

After lunch on Main St. in Ames, we walked a few doors down to the Quilting Connection and enjoyed a bit of fabric shopping together. The shop owner took our picture. That's a lovely French Braid quilt behind us.

A few necessary purchases were made.
All for WIPs (Works In Progress), of course.
And, as I was only eight miles from Nevada, Iowa, before heading back home, I stopped by the fun Block Party Studios. This is the place that makes and sells "word" fabric. (See last week's Friday Flaunt.)

A nice outing, a nice day, and a nice friend. Can a day be more satisfying than that?
