I had such a wonderful time with Regan today! She is as warm and fun in person as she is online. I showed her many of my quilts, some works in progress and my sewing room. After lunch, we headed out to The Quilt Patch in Fairfax. Regan purchased a pair of Machingers gloves and I purchased Kim Diehl’s new book Simple Graces. Regan and I have very similar quilting styles and we both like to cook, bake and preserve. She brought me these jars of salsa and sweet pickle relish. I can already tell you the salsa is yummy – just the right amount of heat (Regan, I want your recipe!). I gave her a jar of tomato sauce and my extra copy of the Ball Blue Book of Preserving.
Thanks to all of you who left comments of advice and encouragement on my last post. I guess I did sound very panicked. I now feel ready to start this little Dear Jane block and will let you know how it goes.
I hope you have a great weekend. I'll be on a bus trip to the Virginia Quilt Museum tomorrow to see Carolyn Lynch's exhibit "Articles of Merit Not Listed". Sounds interesting!
