Blogger Meetup - Meeting ReAnn!

I had the pleasure of a mini-blogger-meetup last Monday!

ReAnn, an internet sewing friend for the last couple of years, was recently visiting San Francisco and we finally got to meet in person!

It was fun, fun, fun!

We hit fabric stores, such as Stone Mountain & Daughter in Berkeley, and Piedmont Fabrics in Oakland, which had just moved up one block three days prior to our visit.

We petted (and drooled over) fabrics!

Doesn't ReAnn have the most gorgeous smile?

We did our most serious damage at Fabrix in SF, but we were too busy shopping to capture the moment. Well, one of us did the most serious damage at Fabrix. I only bought one small piece of fabric. ahem

We snoop shopped. (Well, after a quick detour to FedEx. I'm just sayin'.)

We ate and we laughed!

It was so much fun to meet another sewing soul-sister. We've talked about it for a long time and finally both our schedules coincided. It was nice she came out west. As DD1 will be attending university in Oregon next year, I don't expect to be doing any traveling for some time to come. ;)

P.S. In case you wondered, ReAnn is wearing a really cool Shapes High Five top that she made from a white crinkle fabric purchased in San Diego on a recent road trip. Her beautiful coat and scarf are purchased. I'm wearing my new Au Bonheur tee, my Au Bonheur raincoat, and my latest Marcy Tilton pants (not blogged, Vogue 8712). My scarf is purchased.


  1. Oh how fun--you two look so HAPPY!!

  2. Sounds like a fun day. I haven't been to Stone Mountain in weeks, it is calling me - gotta get there soon :)

  3. How fun! It looks like you guys had a delightful time! It's wonderful to connect with a fellow blogger.

  4. ooh, what a fun day out! You both look like you are having a marvellous time... and that fabric shop (drool)... I'm jealous!

  5. What a joyful time! The two of you look like you had a blast together. So happy for you to be able to spend time with each other in person. These blogosphere relationships can be very special!

  6. We will most certainly have to have another pix taken of the two of us in December. Between us we've lost at least a 1/2 of person
