Oh wow, I just found this thread!!! We had a lot of fun. Those two sweet ladies made me the most beautiful tablerunner, and brought me a Staceyville, Iowa "spoon jar" - one of those jars you put all your cooking utensils in! It's adorable.
It was a nice day and you two were so much fun to meet! I hope we get to do it again someday, only my turn to come out to Ohio! I hope you had fun the rest of the trip!
PS - I'm in the middle!
