More About Quilting Gallery

I should have put this in the first post today but why say everything in one post when I can drag it out over the whole day, right?

One night I was playing around on Quilting Gallery, looking at quilters in my neighborhood, that being Kansas, Arkansas, and, of course, Missouri.  I came across a blog for a lady who is also a longarm quilter and she lives about 20  miles from me.  I wrote her and said “Did you know you’re my neighbor?”  She wrote me back and said “Yes, I did know.  In fact, I saw your son at McDonald’s in El Dorado Springs one day but figured he would think I was goofy if I said something to him.”  Isn’t that funny . . she recognized Chad from my blog!  Well, I thought it was kinda funny! 🙂

But, you really never know who’s out there.  Don’t think too hard about that . . there are bad people but mostly there are good people – quilters, knitters, people who like to do the things you like to day and they’re very easy to local through Quilting Gallery.

    I’m always a little freaked out when someone recognizes me – not that it happens all the time but it’s weird when it does. Someone wrote and told me that my Mom looked familiar from the photo I posted the other day. Turns out she lives in the same city as Mom and while she doesn’t know her, has probably seen her at the LQS.

    I’ve met several quilters through my blog, and a couple more later this month. It is wonderful to be able to connect with people all over the world this way! I’m sure there might be some psycho-quilters out there, but I bet they’re few and far between… give a yell if you come to Northern California!
