    While at work today a customer looked at me and said, "You're on that quilting site......."

    I said I was and asked if she was a particular person's name.
    She said she wasn't, that she had not joined up with us yet, just spends time here reading and learning and loving it.

    You know who you are..... join us! It was good to meet you, even if I did fail to catch your name.

    Happy Quilting!

    And to the rest of us ....best we stay on our best behavior and being helpful as you never know who may recognize us wherever we are!

    Is this funny! Too cool. All your very nice post and pleasant responses to post made her feel comfortable saying hello to you. How nice. Maybe she will register and share this story with us in her introduction. You can be her newbie mom. Good job!

    Short and good. Since I was at work and we were busy with a lot going on we didn't get time to chat a lot. I know she does purses though, and mentioned my Bible Cover! She needed grommets for her purses, which I walked her to and handed her the two colors we had. It's always fun to be able to have what the customer is looking for! (Doesn't always happen)

    I have an old sticky note that says, "Please hang on to this, I may be famous someday." I've signed it! But I also kept it for myself. lol

    Maybe my day has come???

    I would love to have that happen. Most of the ladies I run into just don't believe I am a quilter cause I don't meet their profile of what a quilter is suppose to look like. Guess they don't think I am old enough yet????

    Yeah, that's why I don't use a personal photo in my avatar. I love y'all, but I don't want you able to recognize me if we're walking down the street :D

    I remember I was so tickled when another member PM'd me because she recognized the quilt in my avatar! She had seen it in a local quilt show.

    I think I would refer to her as a lurker, not a stalker!

    Well i have a story to tell. I meet a gal on here who said she lived in Fl. in the winter and in Wi. in the summer and she only lives 15 miles from me in Fl. and we have become best friends. In Wi. she only lives a few miles from me so you know what we will be doing this summer. How cool is that.

    I think we call them "lurkers" rather than stalkers!

    I had posted a picture of my quilt that I was entering in a quilt show and a lady from an applique group that I belong to 50 miles from me that I have known for several years said she saw it posted. I did not even know she was on here and still don't know what her Avatar is.

    I found the Board through another Link & did a lot of reading here for several months before I got courage to start & sign up. I feel more comfortable on PDA because it's hard for me to explain myself in a few short words & I like to make close friends. We all have personal favorites so it's good that we have several options here. Thanks to Admin for listening & it's a swell group of folks, ladies & gents.
