We met Loralie Harris

My friend Carole and I wait impatiently every year for the annual quilt and craft show at the fair grounds. We have a number of crafts in common including embroidery. We love Loralie designs, I made a quilt from some of her designs ( it's posted in an older post), and have more fabric for more quilts. While browsing around the show discovered a whole booth with Loralie designs and fabrics - imagine our surprise when one of the women in the booth says, "I'm Loralie." She had not attended one of the shows in about ten years. She was very gracious and patient, sharing both information and time. We got some wonderful ideas, of course using her designs and purchased enough fabric and embroidery designs hopefully to last until next year - maybe she'll come back and see us!

Wasn't this a hoot of the biggest kind to meet THE Lorelei. We both love her fabrics and embroidery designs sooooo much and to meet the gal herself was awesome stuff.

Absolutely, and such a gracious lady.
