Visit with a far away friend

Cathy from Ireland - Celtic Knots - and her daughters have spent the summer in Bend, Oregon with her parents. She and her girls spent their last day here in the states with me - we had a great time! At least Cathy and I did - not too sure about the girls! We started at Starbucks - of course! Then I took her to a couple of local quilt shops, and she took me to lunch. It was the day of my Golden Age Random Sampler class at Primitive Thimble, so we finished at that shop so she could share her Dear Jane with Eileen and my class mates. We were all so impressed - it's an incredible quilt! Of course Cathy found some goodies to take home with her - as did each of the girls. Thanks, Cathy, for spending some of your precious time with me!

What great that you were able to spend so much time with each other :-) I LOVE the red and white quilt on the back too. Cathi's DJ is beautiful!

Looks like you had a wonderful time. I wish I could have joined in, darn it when work gets in the way. Maybe next time.

How fun that you were able to spend the day with Cathy - I bet her quilt is just gorgeous in person - I've seen it on her blog as she's worked on it.
