I am going to be really freaking lazy and direct you to my wonderful buddy Carol’s blog for a wrap up of our Happy Zombie aka Monica Solorio-Snow visit this past weekend! Go have a look, start at that post & work your way forward through the awesomeness…. So much fun! You might also want to check out this post which captures the true essence of our guild and what the weekend was all about.
You see, I always forget to take photos. I have best intentions but I always forget!
Here’s the only ones I got, my favorite is at the end… you can tell what I like by what I did take photos of, food!
We rented a bus to take us around on our shop hop on the Friday. Genius idea. We started at Hamels Fabrics in Chilliwack, then worked out way into the city.
But I came for the bubble tea, baybee!
I CRAVE this stuff, fresh watermelon juice with coconut jelly “bubbles”. I don’t like the big black tasteless (booger-esque) pearls- did I just say that outloud? Coconut jelly for the win! Juice King at Yaohan Mall is the best.
Then Spool of Thread in Vancouver. You shoulda seen the looks on the street when our bus rolled up, so funny! The we headed back to the valley to My Little Quilt Shop in the Woods in Maple Ridge (no website). Super cute store, then Cactus Club for dinner, in Abbotsford, then home.
I bought a good amount of stuff, but you know what, I unusually put it all away already. No pic. See? Lazy.
Then on the Saturday we did a workshop with Monica and it was so much fun. She did a trunk show & show & tell for us,
and we had a potluck lunch, yums!
But the best part, Monica brought her Ron Swanson quilt! OMG!
And look, the actor, Nick Offerman, aka Ron Swanson, signed it too!
We also got Monica addicted to dill pickle chip dip. Heehee! Yum!
Much fun had by all, we were so lucky to have shared such a fun weekend with our new honourary FVMQG member! I miss her already!
