Bren and I met on the Wool Snippets message board about 13 years ago. We started chatting via instant message and eventually began talking with each other on the phone.

We shopped at Fancy Tiger Crafts in Denver, a craft store with yarn and wool and quilting cotton. What a fun shop! We both found some 'cannot leave without it' fabrics. Here's what I came home with...
This is Liberty voile...I had never seen it in person before. To touch it...ohmy. I bought 1/2 yard of it...not sure what I'll be making but I could not resist.
This will be used to make a cover for my crockpot...which needs to sit on the kitchen counter because there is no space for it anywhere else.
I think these are just delightful fabrics! Will use them to make some kind of quilt...not for sure what pattern, yet.
I absolutely L-O-V-E this fabric...kind of a gray green with dark circles around the x's. Nothing spectacular about it...but it definitely wanted to come home with me. I cannot remember if I was going to use it with the above pieces, or not.
This is Sherlock, one of Bren's cats. He is very outgoing and friendly. Nosy, too. ~grin~
Kelley, of With Hook and Needle fame, sent Bren a quilt top to machine quilt...and she received it yesterday! I was so happy it got there so that I was able to see it! The quilt top is for Kelley's Mom and is all hand-pieced...absolutely beautiful work! (I am fortunate to own a quilt that Kelley hand-pieced.) Here's the quilt Bren received yesterday...

I had a wonderful day with my good friend...and am already looking forward to the next time we're together.
