Blogging buddies - you just never know what surprises they have in store for you. Last week I received an email from Carole of Quilting Adventures inviting me to join her for this month's breakfast club at the Quilted Crow. Heck yeah, I would like to do that . . . . so I contacted the shop and secured my seat at the table.
I hit the road Saturday morning with enough time to pick up a latte at Starbucks along the way. Not really sure what Carole looked like, I scanned the parking lot for an out-of-state plate before heading inside but there were only local plates. Inside I went, checked in, found a spot at the table and then started browsing the shop. Then I heard my name being called in another part of the store and there was Carole full of hugs and smiles.
We had a nice morning at the shop viewing all the new items available and hearing about up-coming classes. Afterward Carole took me to a great little coffee shop/bakery where we chatted over a cup a little longer. We even met a puppy in training from NEADS - gives me hope that Daisy can learn the skills that we have been working on.
Before heading back to the quilt shop, Carole shared a great farm store with me - Idylwilde Farms. We browsed the beautiful flowers and produce. I came home with a delicious quart of fresh blueberries.
Before we said our goodbyes for the day, Carole presented me with a little gift.
A darling pack of fat quarters from her shop. A wonderful and thoughtful addition to my stash. It was so nice to spend time chatting and getting to know Carole after having chatted via our blogs for the last 3 or so years. I'll be looking forward to another get together again sometime soon.
