Yesterday ......

.......... I met a bloggy friend for the first time.

Ms Quilting Prolifically called in with her daughter.  They had been to Harrogate to deliver two of her quilts to be hung in the Northern Quilt Show this weekend. To get there, they almost had to go past my front door, so they called in.  We have tried several times before to meet up, but the fates always conspired to prevent it, but this time we beat them.  It is lovely to meet people you've got to know through blogs, and we had a lovely chat.  She also had a giveaway on her blog recently, which I won, so she delivered my prize personally. 
There were 2 quilt pins which I sort of collect and a kit for a really gorgeous little pincushion.  The other thing she gave me was a wonderful mug rug, which she made specially for me.  Just look at the quilting on this
Apparently, this little beauty was made and quilted in a morning.  When I grow up, perhaps I'll be able to quilt like that?


  1. Lovely prizes.
    That little quilt is gorgeous. I can't believe it only took a morning. It would take me longer than that just to decide on the fabric

    Love and hugs Gina xxx

  2. You just never know who is out there
    :-) x x x

  3. When you grow up?! Yeah, whatever, silly girl! You already make the most beautiful things!!! Yay for blog friends!

  4. what a nice win and how very nice to meet on-lines friends!
    love the little quilt.

  5. AW! yes,she is a great quilter!!

  6. It was wonderful to finally meet with you :) And yes you too can run one of these up in less than a couple of hours! Have a lovely time on the choo choo!

  7. Mug rug - what a great name.

    Sounds like you had a lovely get-together, shame I can't get to Harrogate and see the quilts in person,(please book your luxury holidays on different dates next year!)
