Visitors From Afar

We have had some rocking visitors come to see me in the store recently.  First was Michelle.

Oh my gosh. She was so nice.  She lives in Gilbertsville, New York but her parents live not too far from the store. When she read our story in the quilting magazine and saw our address on Mayfield, she recognized that road as the exit she gets off the freeway when she comes to visit them.  She came to see me twice before she left to go back home. She had no way of knowing this, but it turns out my mom used to spend her summers in the Village of Sidney, just a short distance from where Michelle lives.  She is going to come back to see us again.

And then I met Betty.  You will never believe where she is from.

Scotland.  Like Scotland.  The country way over on the other side of the spinner ball.  That's the globe.  She has been following our blogs too.  How cool is this!!!  She came with her friends.

Hi Robina, Betty and Pat

Pat lives in West Salem, Ohio.  I know just where that is because it is where I get off the freeway to ride the train at the outlet mall with my grandpa.  One day I am going to go visit Pat.  She is a hoot. A hooty, hoot, hoot:)  I don't think I will be able to go visit Robina and Betty though. They live too far away. So I will just wave to them~~~~~~~~~~~~~:)

Thank you visitors.

Scotland? Wow - that is impressive. So glad you came and visited us in Utah - who knows if I'll ever get over to your store!

Scotland, huh? That's totally cool! How great for you to meet someone from Scotland - that's something that even I have never been able to say for myself! Good for you, Sarah! :)
