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.
