OK, just one - Do It!! I have met Michelle T., Kathi R. and now LynnRowe, and each meeting has been simply delightful. What a great cap-off to a really, really fun weekend and I still haven't unpacked my new Featherweight best friend, Shelby. Photos to follow.

Thanks Lynn!

Congrats on the medals and your new pal Shelby.

I totally agree on the meeting up with PR members -- I've been to 2 PR weekends and still communicate regularly with several people I've met. Of course I have to PRers close at hand and we get together for sewing days, shopping trips and our next adventure s the Quilt Show on the 15th.

So inquiring minds want to know .... which dress did you wear for your bronze medal performance?????

Ah yes - the dress. Actually, it was "your" dress, SheBear!Purple dress The brilliant and very sparkly purple and fuchsia show up so well on the floor and apparently helps me "dance up" to my tall partner.

I wore the blue flowered gown
Friday, and though I have added more crystals and a bit more float, I think we honestly didn't quite dance up to our potential that day, so I can't blame the dress.

I will link to action shots in a week or so when the official photos come up online

Tourist when I first met Lynn Rowe I left her home with a serger. HMM I sense a trend.

I met Lynn again and got to meet some of the Feather Weights.

What we need to do I have her come over the the Island for a visit. She has not been to the Museum, Butchart Gardens or Inner Harbour.

Michelle - we didn't get a chance to meet the other FW's. I think they might have been sleeping in after the Canucks game the night before. Next time!
