An Afternoon With Some of Your Favorite Blog Stars!!

I had the most wonderful day on Friday. Bill and I are in St. George, UT and just happened to be here at the same time that Nanette, Sherri, Dawn, Lori, RaeAnn, and Nedra were getting together for a retreat! Nanette's sisters Michelle and Paula also joined them. Nanette and I stayed in touch and I was able to visit them at the cutest quilt shop while they sewed. I was just STAR STRUCK at getting to meet all these fabulous bloggers all at once!! Lori was teaching her new pattern "Eat Cake" and she is a great teacher! These gals are so talented and have so much to offer. They are also some of the most generous and sweetest people I've ever met. I'll treasure it always. Here are a few pics showing the good time that was had by everyone, me especially!


Here is a pic of everyone there..... from left to right Paula, Michelle, Rae Ann, Me, Dawn, Sherri, Nanette, Nedra, and Lori.

I no more than got in the door and they started showering me with gifts! I told you they were generous! I love them all!!

Needless to say, it was a fabulous afternoon and I was thrilled to get to meet these gals in person after having visited through blogs for so long. I consider myself very, very blessed~

I loved the block you showed everyone with the yellow leaves. Beautiful!!!

Nedra said...

It was such a treat to meet you Glenna! Yes, we all blogged about you, too. It really felt like a day of celebrity gatherings. Hasn't the blogging world connected us with the nicest of people? I feel so fortunate to learn from each and every one.

I have been reading the blogs of these very talented ladies and it looks like everyone had a wonderful time and they were all thrilled to meet you. I would have been thrilled too!

Hi Glenna...
How fun was Friday?...I know. So much fun. I am so glad that I met you. What a cute and talented person you are and your husband was such a dear taking our picture!
Until next time,
Lori

Hi Glenna ~ I just LOVED meeting you! You are such a doll and your husband was very kind to put up with us all. To me... Friday was like going back to "Old Home Week" and getting to see all of your buddies that you grew up with. I enjoyed our time we had together but felt sad that you weren't able to hang out with us for another couple of days... maybe next time!
I loved your gorgeous blocks that you brought to show us and will be posting about you and them on Thursday.
Hugs!

Nancy said...

So...I saw the cutest applique over on Lori Holt's blog and it said it was a new pattern of yours? Any idea when it will be ready? Will it be in a book? or a single pattern?

I had the best feeling when I left. It was a sisterhood feeling. Almost like a spiritual lift. Hard to put into words but it made me realize that my relationships with the women in that room was special and important. Like that would go on . . . I loved meeting you Glenna as you know I've admired you for a while and you make me know I can be more and do more just from watching your example. Thank you again for coming. We need to get together more, when possible.
