Meet Up with Lori Holt

Quilt designer Lori Holt (Bee In My Bonnet)
 and I have been friends for many years.
While I've been in Utah for my sons wedding
I gave her a call and we met for lunch.
 Lori has a new fabric line
coming out
and it was pretty exciting to see the Strike Off's.
*I'll share more about that in a future post.
 When I used to live in Utah
Lori and our good friend Nanette (Freda's Hive)
would often meet up at our favorite restaurant
Food For Thought 
in Draper
I was so happy to be able to once again go to lunch 
at our spot
with these two very talented and wonderful ladies!
How I have missed them!
We caught up on all the latest with our families
and life
and it felt as if I had never moved away.
 Lori gave me a present
of her latest pattern release
Cut. Press. Sew. Quilt.
What a wonderful gift!
Thank you Lori!
 Complete with Lori's
Vintage Happy fabrics
In fact, starting this Monday
Lori is hosting a
Sew Along for
Cut. Press. Sew. Quilt.
Because of Lori's wonderful gift, I'm now ready!
Want to join along?
She gives great tutorials. and instructions.

I used to read Nanette's blog but it got lost somewhere along the way off my feeder and I didn't realize it, now that you posted the link it is back on there. You have such talented friends glad you all got to meet for lunch - what a nice present!

So fun to see you all together. Lori has a special place in my heart as Nanette does too. Those blogs of theirs filled a void at a time when I needed it most and led me on a path to my little sewing room.
