More Happies

When I was in Montana last month I met my IG friend Keri aka The Quilted Valkyrie.  We had tried to meet on several occasions over the last year or so, and it was nice to finally make it happen.

can you tell the picture was taken while on retreat?!
I brought along a Liberty of London journal cover and came home with a beautiful padded camera strap.  I think I got the better end of the swap.  After breakfast, we discussed fabric while shopping at Keri's LQS.

I met another IG friend after she listed her white Singer Featherweight for sale.  I was so excited to get a white machine to match my mom's that I forgot to get a picture of Leona and I together.

Leona recently moved back to Florida, so I am hoping we will have more opportunities to sew together (and get photos).

 I have a bag of these Bad Ass Quilters pins and love to put them on a handmade pin cushion as a gift along with fabric and a coffee mug.

fabric love
This Don't Postpone Joy pin was found at a local gift shop and is headed to another quilty friend and lover of fabric.

It's a good feeling to send and receive happiness, don't you think?!
Thanks for stopping by.
Happy stitching,


  1. "Don't postpone Joy"- Thanks for the happy reminder! :D

  2. It's so fun to meet friends in person. Spreading and sharing joy!

  3. Lucky you getting to meet a couple of your blogging buddies! Your white baby Singer is very cute.

  4. Your journals are amazing. I just LOVE mine! You have a green/white machine??! Mine is named Bonnie.

  5. It's such fun meeting people from blogging and IG, isn't it? I met Leona too, about two months ago. We met up at our local quilt shop - Simply Sew Boutique. I wanted to take a picture of us there, and she wouldn't let me. She doesn't like having her photo taken, so don't worry about not getting one with her. Your white Featherweight is darling.
