Meeting a Fellow Blogger

Yesterday I had the pleasure to meet up with Pat from Bell Creek Quilts. We met once before when she was in Michigan visiting her mom. She let me know that she was going to be in the state and so Monday was the day her family "opened the cage door and let her out". She wanted to meet up at the local Joann Fabrics. So I called her on my way home from work and she left her mom's house and we met at the fabric store.
Pat and Me
Doesn't she have the nicest smile??

We were stopped, talking when I heard my name. I turned around and who should be there but none other than Cori of Crazy Quilt Girl's quilt shop! You all know that we have been friends forever (or so it seems). It happened to be her birthday! Just so you could see her too I figured out the self timer on my camera and captured the three of us.
Pat, Cori and Me
I look kind of like a chipmunk but hey, at least you can see cheek definition!

After a short chat Pat and I were off to Hobby Lobby. That's where she wanted to go so that's where we went. Next stop was dinner. I had a coupon for the Red Olive so that's where we went. I did think to take a picture of our food this time too. Pat got a Gyro and a salad and I had their Bistro salad, YUM! (Although I brought half of this home for my lunch today)
Our dinner
The food was good and the company was even better. Pat and I talked like old friends. Funny isn't it that we may not meet in person for a long time or ever but we make strong friendships!

Thank you for a wonderful evening, Pat and thank your family for sharing you too!!

Pat DOES have the best smile. I had the pleasure of her company along with DD at our retreat last August. Fun to meet someone you follow online where you can pick up right were you left off in conversation.
