    And now GiGix12 and Purplemem met in person!
    Today we met up, went to lunch together, and attended a local quilt guild meeting. We had so much fun! It was great to meet a fellow QB member face to face.

    Here's a picture, Lori on the left, Mary Jane on the right.

    I answer to everything including "hey you!":shock: LOL! I'm MJ, Mary Jane, Mary, Purple, Purplemem, and Mem. Sometimes I'm Mom and grandma and sweetheart, too. I guess the best one I like is, "Friend." :lol: :lol: :lol:

    That's so nice to see both of you together!
    Gigix12 and I had a nice PM chat after I got her block.
    I got great blocks from both of you!
    I'm glad you are finally well enough to get out.
    Stay well!

    I agree :thumbup:
    I daydream about getting together with folks, just time, distance, money...health. What would we do without quiltboard, pc's and phones?
    So glad you had this happy day and memory making time!

    The internet has been great in making new friends from lots of different states or countries.

    Isn't it wonderful to actually meet in person?

    Big smiles and fast friends.

    warm quilt hugs, sue in CA
