Mary Lou Weidman was going to be a guest speaker and teach classes. I signed up for both classes. I was still apprehensive as I walked into the classroom, and relieved to see a much smaller group. Mary Lou was wonderful, of course, but my greatest joy was meeting Vicky Ferguson who sat at the table just in front of me. She made me feel welcome and was so helpful in showing me the lay of the land. Vicky is a dietitian who writes a column for the Grand Rapids Press. We have remained in contact since, so when I saw that Mary Lou was having a sock swap I e-mailed Vicky thinking she’d want to join too. I was right. We were not in the same swap group, but I still got one of her socks. Above is the sock she sent me as a thank you for telling her about the swap. Her lovely thank you note also told me about the fabric she used in this sock. It is from Mary Lou’s “Bee Happy” line for Benartex. Isn’t it beautiful! Thank you Vicky for your thoughtfulness. I love this block. You’re a great friend and prove what I always say, “Quilters are the best.!
