Doing the Wilson

Many of you might recognize this sweet lady doing her "Wilson" pose as the renowned and infamous Thimbleanna. I've had the pleasure of getting to know her over the past year by visiting her blog and conversing back and forth through emails.

I was very excited to learn that she was making a Road Trip to Utah this month and we've been emailing back and forth for several weeks now to arrange the time and place of our meeting.

Yesterday was the TIME and the PLACE was Thimbles and Threads in Draper. I recognized her immediately and gave her a great big hug. We then headed toward Pine Needles since she and her Aunt Anne had never been there before. We also had lunch at Archibald's which is also located there in Gardner Village.

We had a tight schedule before they both had to head back to a family dinner in Manti but we were able to sneak in Broadbents in Lehi before they had to leave and that's where we took the two pictures below.

This is the darling gift that Thimbleanna made for me with my name embroidered on the front. It's a darling sewing bag with scissors and needles inside. I love it and will use it in my purse. I always like to have scissors, needle, and thread handy for any handwork.

Here's a better look at the wonderful gift she made me and she even used my favorite scissor fabric from MoMo Wonderland by Moda. She knows I love RED!!!

Thanks for taking the time to see me. It was so much fun. See you again next year! Right? RIGHT! : )
