{Post 1,192} Meeting Marcie

Wednesday AM, my son James and I drove to VA Beach, VA for a wedding.  My adopted son, Tim, was to be married yesterday (and he was!).  James was a groomsman.  I was the adopted mother of the groom ;)

Here's Tim and his bride:

When I learned that the wedding was going to be in VA Beach, I contacted my then e-friend Marcie Patch to see if we could get together.  She invited me to stay with her, but the bride had already arranged a place for me to stay.  Later I found out that the bride's plans had fallen through, so I ended up staying with Marcie and her husband at their lovely home.

I want to respect Marcie's privacy, but oh, did I have a marvelous time.  She even made me a mini quilt top .  I will show pictures of it after I hand quilt and bind it.  

I didn't want to be too pushy (after all, I had already asked if I could stay with her), so I didn't get a picture of the two of us together.  Here SHE is, though:

There was something magical about the room I slept in at her house.  For the first time in many years, I slept all night without waking up!  That's from 11 PM until 7 AM.  It seemed like a 48 hours.  Incredible.  Thanks, Marcie and husband for a wonderful stay.

So fun having you here! What a terrible photo of me! I look like I can't keep my eyes open, which is about the truth! Glad you slept well in our magical bedroom!

Best wishes to the Bride and Groom. And how fun to meet in person a quilting friend, especially one so hospitable to open her home to you.
