Fun Meet Up results in Quilted Business Card Holder

Yesterday I drove to Davis to meet Hannah Klaus Hunter and her sister, A. I carried a copy of Quilting Arts magazine as my carnation of identification. No need, I recognized Hannah from behind at the coffee line from her blog photo.
I realize I don't get out a lot to meet new people and wondered what I'd talk about. I am laughing now, and if Hannah is reading this she is near hysterical I imagine, as I talked and talked and talked. I imagine I told them more about myself than they ever wanted to know or cared about. But I had fun. My energy level had returned after my little health break and I was "happily high" on life.
It was delightful for me to meet these interesting women and to share our interests in our work, art and lives. Since they are way more "private persons" than myself, I'll let you meet Hannah through her blog. She is new at blogging, so I invite you to go there and liven it up with your energy and art sharing, become a follower, bring your friends and enjoy learning more about her and her wonderful art. HERE. You can say Lynn sent you! ;-)
We shared business cards, and Hannah mentioned that she'd love to have a quilted fabric card holder. So what do I do? I come home, find a pattern on line and make her one. Shown above.
I hope you like it Hannah.
Now it won't be a surprise next Sunday when I go to her home for a Collage Salon! I can hardly wait!!!!
