We agreed to meet at Tim's...or Tim Horton's for those of you who are not familiar with this famous Canadian coffee shop. We kinda knew what each other looked like from our blogs, but admittedly, my photo is about 5 years old when I was younger, healthier and thinner.
Mr. Painted Quilt
We sent Mr. PQ on his way to walk Ollie around town while Lesley and I made our way to Darlene's new quilt shop, A Needle Pulling Thread.
After chatting with Darlene for a few minutes, Lesley and I made our way around the five rooms and I had to smile at Lesley's reaction. It was almost identical to mine and everyone else who crosses the threshold into the shop for the first time.
I "allowed" Lesley shop on her own while I went to chat with Darlene...but not before I indulged myself with more quilty happiness.
For those of you who are on Facebook, Darlene will be offering specials on her FB site, A Needle Pulling Thread Quilt Shop, so you might want to check it out and add her page to your "likes".
Lesley managed to lighten her pocketbook with lots of "must haves" as well and I'm counting the days until she and her husband decide to make the 200+ mile trip back to Digby so that we can do it all again.
The only negative thing about finally getting to meet Lesley was that our visit wasn't long enough. On the positive side, I think we hugged each other enough in parting to last until our next meeting.
Blogging friends are indeed the best!
