I have a dear friend, Elaine, that works with the quilt show mother-ship so was in IA for the show last week. I felt so blessed that we got more time with Elaine than I ever expected. She was our wonderful hostess with the mostest in KY in April. I love that my friend, Sue that went with me to IA, enjoys Elaine too! 🙂
We were able to share a meal together, much chat & hilarity, and just enjoy each other.
She worked at one of the lecture rooms most of the time. We were there while she was guarding the door a clear hour before the lecture started, when Libby Lehman arrive to present. Of course, she was let in but we chatted a bit first. As Sue & I walked away, I thought I should have asked for a photo of me & Libby. (I’m so good at hindsight….!)
Later while eating together, Elaine asked how I know Libby! Well, silly… I don’t “know” her one bit. I’ve seen videos with her, seen her books, seen her advertisements but that was the first I ever saw her in person. Both of them were shocked… here she was giving us dining suggestions and vague directions and we just chatted away. It was sooo very funny that Sue & Elaine thought I knew her. 🙂
I wish we could have snagged a photo of the 3 of us. I’m not very good at putting 2 photos together to look normal. LOL!
