My Second Blogger Meetup
Hey everyone! I’m not sure about you, but I could have used another day on my weekend…
Meg opened up her wonderful apartment on the 55th floor (that overlooks Lake Michigan as well as the city skyline) to teach myself and 6 other ladies how to hand sew a sachet.
The project was easy, but it afforded me time to practice my hand stitching and sewing straight lines along with time to visit with the other gals.
The first question I asked was… where did Meg get all of these scissors?!
Upon entering her lovely abode, I was tackled like a line backer with a hug from Meg and welcomed inside. She and her lovely boyfriend Rob certainly know how to make guests feel welcome. I was given a mimosa and a spot at the counter, which was an excellent spot to watch Meg poach some pears for yummy salad. I also watched as Rob put the finishing touches on his Banana Tiramisu and bake up some mini cinnamon rolls.
The food and drinks never stopped coming until I left their place. I had bites of cinnamon rolls, popcorn, tasty onion dip, poached pear salad, banana tiramisu, candied bacon bites, a baked ham-egg cup concoction, and mimosas. (I fully know I may be missing something too!)
Sorry for the poor image quality on this one…. But it was too good not to share. Meg being her usual, fun self taking a helping of her poached pear salad.
This is how much Meg has to bend down to reach the zilredloh-height. heh
All in all, I had a great time sewing with the group. I had a few slight moments of shyness, but with so many people and lots of food & alcohol the fun outweighed any relapses of introversion that I had.
I forgot to mention… Once I was done with my sachet, Meg came over with a GIANT box of all of her vintage sewing patterns. She kept telling me to take what I wanted… which I couldn’t. Instead I had to borrow a few so I can trace and give back to her. Holding some of her patterns hostage is a wonderful excuse to visit with her again, don’t you think?! *Insert evil-happy laughter here.*
These are the patterns that Meg let me borrow. Aren’t they awesome?! The skirt is my favorite!!!
Sooo my dear readers…. Who do I get to be meet up with next? heh :)
