  1. Congratulations on your 200th post - I've just reached that milestone too!
    And here's to the next 200 plus . . .
    Hmmm.. if I could meet anyone in the world.. I think I'd actually like to meet our Queen. Not just a brief how-do-you-do, but maybe a nice natter over afternoon tea & scones :-)
    Happy Wednesday,
    xx

  33. Really, my list is long, and I know you said "anyone".
    I would love to meet Dolly Parton. She has always intriqued me with her wit and humor, and her meager upbringing.
    In the sewing world, I would love to meet Martha Pullen. Oh yes, that is happening next week! I'm going to a MP Event for the first time ever!
    I have always wondered about my grandpas that died before I was born. My kids never got to know their grandpas either. It has always bothered my son the most.
    At least we were able to tell him about both of them and show pictures.
    Thanks for the chance to win.

  51. Congratulations and thanks for providing lots of fun and informative posts. I've just started reading blogs in the past 2 or 3 years so I'm impressed that you've actually had your own blog since 2011. I follow with GFC and Feedly. Your question is a hard one. Generally, I'm not impressed with celebrities. I'd love to visit again with my Grandma - I still miss her and she's been gone 30+ years! But...if it needs to be a living person, I'd choose a quilter. What about you, Kathy, or maybe Amy from Amy's Free Motion Quilting Adventures!!
