meeting Summerset

Our Friend Summerset, of Pins and Needles fame is competing this weekend in the garment category at the American Quilt Society show in Paducah KY. She's showing "American Beauty", go take a look at her blog to see pictures.
ANYWAY...
she flew into St Louis today, and we met for some quality fabric shopping time, then grabbed a bite to eat, before she took off to drive to Paducah.
Turns out she was competing at the Threads competition and I saw her walk the runway in Novi MI back in 2005. Small world.

To get an idea how tiny Summerset really is, or conversely, how NOT SMALL I am, take a look. We got one of the saleshelp to take our pic together at the store this afternoon. Note that she is wearing a top made from fabric from Gorgeous Things, and I'm wearing the Chanel style jacket that is part of my SWAP.

How cool that you two got to connect over a SWAP!!! And you both look fabulous in your garments. I bet you both had a ton of fun! Enjoy!

Yes, recognised both of you and the garments straight away. Though Summerset did not mention she made a top with the "left overs". It must have been fun to catch up.

Thanks, Marji for posting this! Be fair - you were also wearing a great pair of purple heels!
