So here's the story!! While I was in the fabric store, a woman was beside me with a stack of solids on the bolt, and the current ANPT magazine in hand, open to MY quilt pattern and reading it out to figure which colors to get!! OMG! Seriously! I was flabbergasted. I stood beside her at the cutting table and whispered, 'that's me'. She turned to me smiling and said, "Oh are you making this too!? I love it! I'm making it for my sister who is having a baby." I repeated, "No. I mean, that's ME. I'm Monika". Then she understood. "OH! Hi!" she said as I stood there with the binding fabric in my arms. TOO FUNNY! Really, what are the odds? So I told her, "why don't you let me buy the binding and I'll get a kit off to you tomorrow?" Hilarious. We agreed. We chatted a while and said good bye. And I'm still smiling. My cheeks hurt. ; ) What luck to happen by each other like that! Pure serendipity.

Before I forget, the Lapel Stick winners are DIANE and BERNIE!! : ) Hey Congrats you two! I may even have your mailing addresses already, but just in case, drop me a line. Apparently the mail is on and the strike is over.
To everyone who wrote limericks, THANK YOU ! Oh those were so great, even to the women who claim they can't rhyme. I'm going back to Friday's post to read them all again. HAHA!! You all keep me smiling!
