fabric shopping with a new friend

I can't remember exactly when but some time ago (at least a year) a fellow quilter/blogger and I figured out we both grew up in the same little city, Spokane WA. (I live just outside Spokane, but I always say I am from Spokane) Leigh lives in Utah and was in town last week with her family on vacation. We were able to meet up for lunch and some fabric shopping....we both had a great time. I can't say I have ever shopped specifically just for fabric with someone before and I could easily see myself doing it again with Leigh....I don't recall many lulls in the conversations...we talked about blogging, family, kids, religion, Spokane, name it...I had a great afternoon and we were both kid free! :)
Some of the fabric I picked up are these beauties....I LOVE LOVE LOVE these clocks!! So stinkin cute! I showed it to my husband and he immediately could pick out a clock that he remembers his Grandparents having....I already have set aside some of this for my doll quilt swap partner as a goody to go with her mini.
And these glasses, my daughter just loved them....she picked out a pair that look similar to hers.
If I am ever in Salt Lake I will have to do some fabric shopping with is more probable that she will be back in Spokane sooner then I would go to Utah (you never know though) and I hope we can do it was so nice to put a name with a face and a voice and just chit chat in person....thanks Leigh!
